Sr Exec Admin/Project Coordinator to 3 V.P's (Former Employee), Deerfield, IL – February 14, 2013
Pros: great company
Cons: contract position
I supported four scientists and physician/scientists traveled extensively and, even when in Chicago, had frequent video-/teleconferences across the globe spanning early morning to late evening. I was at the hub of all this activity, closely managing all of our travel and meetings. For all of these requirements, I was able to be highly efficient, effective, – more... and independent which is why they trusted me. In addition, I accurately managed, filed, and tracked volumes of complex expense reports, often involving multiple currencies. In addition, I was able demonstrat my initiative on multiple occasions, such as organizing team building meetings; developing a better internal tracking system for project expenditures; to cite a few examples. In doing all of the above, my strong loyalty to our team and being an effective ambassador for us when I interfaced with other organizations in Takeda only generated effecitive work preformance and valued relationships between us. Another attribute worth reiterating my V.P. and team contunously communicated my ability to perform my duties independently and responsibly without much active management-essential for a group so frequently out of office. On a daily basis, I approached her job with energy and enthusiasm helping to foster an overall motivational environment. I was a consummate team player, being helpful and supportive of other Takeda colleagues outside of our group. Based on this experience, I regard this is one of the best companies I have had the pleasure of working for. Again I was constintely thanked for my work and told that I was talented, technologically savvy, trustworthy, and dedicated to making the persons I supported more successful and effective. I have every confidence that I enhanced my team morale, environment and that i was considered a value to their organization. – less

Lack of talented executive leadership. No promising pipline just me too drugs!
District Sales Manager (Former Employee), California – December 6, 2012
Pros: high salaries, stock options, benefits, company cars, cresset trip, bonus plan
Cons: lead by human resources, ethics and compliance and legal team.
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 – more... nothing left in the tank but me too products to keep the ship floating. – less

Senior Pharmaceutical Sales Representative (Former Employee), Ft. Lauderdale, FL – July 24, 2012
Takeda Pharmaceuticals has grown significantly over the last 6 1/2 years that I was there. The day-to-day job functions remain much the same, such as calling on physicians offices and promoting various disease states and products.

Pros: travel, and compensation, and the job, overall.
Cons: frustration in not being able to have an impact with an office.
An employee needed to be a good self-starter, calling on an average of 10 offices a day. You were pretty much on your own, with an occasional phone call or meeting with your counterpart once a week. I really enjoyed the interaction with the different offices, and the ability to impact patient's lives. The travel was enjoyable and enabled me to see different – more... areas I normally wouldn't. – less
