Great company with many perks. You feel you are making a change in peoples lives. the office started to get crowded as the company grew. The most enjoyable part of the job was working alongside my colleagues and learning from them.
Professional Sales representative (Current Employee) – Spokane wa – September 24, 2015
I love working for Takeda, my manager is wonderful. He knows how to get the best out of his team. Red tape is an issue but with the size of the company, a personal touch from above is very much noticed and appreciated.
Freedom, free lunches, coffee, collaborate with highly educated professionals daily
Senior Clinical Science Liaison (Former Employee) – Deerfield, IL – March 18, 2015
I enjoyed working at Takeda very much. We had a great MSL team, good managers and support. I got to work in several therapeutic areas and developed great MSL relationships.
The company changed a lot with the take over of TAP. These were two very different companies. My job changed a lot with a new therapeutic area and joining a team from TAP. Sales suffered and the company went through several reductions in staff.
Professional Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Tupelo, MS – June 1, 2013
My work for Takeda was a game changer for me professionally. It was my first job in pharmaceutical sales and the environment in which I learned nearly all of what I know about the industry. I successfully acclimated from a career in patient care to one in sales, which was a steep learning curve culturally for the first year or so. Ultimately, I grew into sales and now feel completely comfortable and that my greatest strength is the ability to merge my background in health care with a highly competitive environment in which I thrive on the attainment of measurable goals.
Lack of talented executive leadership. No promising pipline just me too drugs!
District Sales Manager (Former Employee) – California – December 6, 2012
If you like to be highly micromanaged and need a bureaucratic structure to perform then Takeda USA is the place for you. This company is plagued with poor morale and two clashing cultures stemming from the convergence of TAP and existing Takeda legacy folks back in 2008. They lost their two multi billion dollar cash cows in Prevacid and Actos and have nothing left in the tank but me too products to keep the ship floating.

Calling on specialist and primary care physcians. Learned business acumen and effective pre-call planning. The management was extremely knowledgable and organized. My co-workers were very supportive. The hardest part of my job was the administrative responsibilities. I enjoyed the manager ride alongs.

Sales Rep (Current Employee) – Illinois – February 24, 2012
Takeda used to be an incredible place to work. Since the merger the priorities have changed. There is no consistency between top management and middle management. The culture of the company had dwindled and there is very little job satisfaction.

physician access is tough, products not growing, managers are clueless
