    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Standard WFH days, good people (outside of functioning department) - Directors, Managers are approachable even Head of Departments wil say 'hello'. ICH GCP training is delivered better compared with the company it's partnered with (PRA).

    Cons

    Too much sticking to SOPs and following everything exactly as they are written, with no real deviation or real problem solving. Entry level departments of work functions are seen as simpler things rather than what they are e.g. Regulatory Information Management is seen by the managers and senior upper management as 'data entry' - which is not correct when you are dealing with complicated databases and people who use those tools daily.
