    I have been working at Takeda Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Relatively stable, low threat of acquisition. Not as much flux or change as other pharma companies. Flexible, good comp and bens. Invest in leadership development. Focus on patient and company ethos.

    Cons

    Not much innovation, some old school leadership / management philosophy and laborious decision making processes. Lack of empowerment. Still quite political re legacy organizations and lack of trust. No acknowledgement or efforts re cultural integration of legacy companies.

    Pay is lower than industry norm, some shift work is required over the weekend once or twice a month, short staffed and find it hard to hang onto workers that aren't from Bray, because more money else where

    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.
