    I worked at Takeda Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Takeda as a Japanese ethos which is very much patient focused. The takedaism values are meaningful and can relate too. Great place to work for & company benefits are really good!

    Cons

    Decisions take too long to make. Moving from a japenese company to a USA one, focused in Boston..sad times ahead!

    Advice to Management

    Not just to focus just on Boston!!
