    Pros

    They always try do what is right, by the patient and employees. Positive working environment. Opportunities for development and career advancement with acquisition of Shire.

    Cons

    The company is extremely large now with the acquisition, so departments seem siloed. Many sales managers and reps are mediocre at best but allowed to coast with no consequences. Very conservative culture.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Takeda's ethics are the primary reason I can't imagine leaving. Many companies will say they prioritize patients over profits, but I've had the privilege of watching Takeda do this, even when the decision is murky or difficult. The leadership consistently demonstrates the cultural priorities - including recognizing that a large company cannot by its nature be apolitical, and taking a stand for justice on important issues like racial inequality and LGBTQ+ inclusion.

    Cons

    The business requires balancing strict regulation with rapid change; this can be stressful for some.
