I was hired by Takeda when it launched its first drug, ACTOS to the US. It was a smaller company filled with culture. It was a very exciting time filled with opportunities. Takeda has seen many changes over the past 14 year with the goal of maintaining that culture the best that they could. This is a challenging task for any company that is in the midst of significant growth. Through the years at Takeda I fealt valued and was very loyal. Like most pharmaceutical companies, change was constant and you either had to adapt or you would struggle. We saw many directors come and go which made it difficult to keep tract of what was expected at times. I enjoyed so much about my career at Takeda, from building solid relationships with my customers and helping to change the way they viewed treatment strategies for specific disease states to collaborating with my coworkers. I have no regrets only great learning experiences from my time at Takeda.
