    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Takeda Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    New building with lots of top office technology

    Cons

    Never worked in such a bad atmosphere. Pure dictatorship which is causing countless good people to quit without any other roles to go to, but if you ask people are being "redistributed in the Takeda network" when in reality people are running to other sites because they can't hack the management here.

    Advice to Management

    No point offering advice to management as they won't listen to a word.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Takeda Pharmaceuticals full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good location, new building and good food

    Cons

    Complete dictatorship. The entire site is ruled by a dictator who’s decisions have become more and more erratic since the day she started. Horrible work atmosphere where the few who toe the line are rewarded and those with any bit of common sense or work ethic are smothered.

    Advice to Management

    Let manager manage and stop the political manoeuvring. Hire and promote people based on their abilities and not according to their fit to some aspirational “culture”
