    I have been working at Takeda Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great experience in a start-up environment Great atmosphere of support from colleagues including management A lot of opportunity to learn and advance Lots of investment in the site securing existing and new jobs Good pay, benefits and flexi-time.

    Cons

    Incredibly busy but this is a result of the fast expansion and should get better over time I expect Difficult to organise nights out as lots of people live outside Dublin

    Advice to Management

    keep focussed on maintaining the positive culture as the staff numbers get bigger

    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”

    I have been working at Takeda Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    Ppl,ppl,ppl and that's about it lately .

    Cons

    Clearly profits only oriented ,total disregard for employee's hard work to date on Shire side ,very upsetting to see the treatment you are getting after all the struggle we went through in the last years due to poor leadership and bad corporate decisions ,you feel used and now thrown away also because of an absolute unsettling redundancy package well below industry standards for a company of this size ,this is not... acceptable. What is being advertised at the big corporate scale with regards to company's culture doesn't match the reality .I would stay away from this company .

    Advice to Management

    You have shown lack of appreciation towards the employees,you have proven that you plainly don't care about the distress you are putting them through and didn't listen ,you managed to demotivate and disappoint good employees that really cared about this company and gave their best .

    Pros

    Support from Legacy Shire Management

    Cons

    Very Threatening to Shire employees

    Advice to Management

    Takeda practice what you preach and look at the talent in Shire as you promised - Show Employees are valued. Respect their partners and children. Shire people with 7 years strong track records are applying for roles, not getting them and yet the TAKEDA employee with 3 months experience is? Shire employees are been given two weeks to either accept a redundancy offer or move country. Can they not check with families... first and have time to do research? Shire employees left out of meetings and kept in the dark? Why? This is the company that champions diversity? Engagement? And caring for Patient? Why not practise what you preach? Show respect? Care? Be honest and fair its right and simple.
