Rewards high performance while having a family type environment
Hospital Portfolio Executive Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  From South Metro Atlanta to the Florida LineFebruary 18, 2019
Astellas did an excellent job educating its workforce and was on the forefront of both environmental and social consciousness, Unlike some companies within the pharmaceutical industry, Astellas always demanded each employee maintain the highest ethical standards in all aspects of their work.

Astellas stressed both being involved in the community and service to others. Each employee was offered one week with pay to do volunteer work with in our communities. I very much enjoy working with wounded veterans and had significant opportunity to do so during my time with them.

I highly recommend Astellas as top notch company with which to work.
Pros
The Astellads Culture of Family
Cons
Kept out of the Territory too often for projects and meetings

Exciting workplace
Senior Sales Consultant (Current Employee) –  Charleston, SCJuly 28, 2018
Astellas is a workplace where employees are excited and motivated to work. Employees are essential for physicians because they bring new cutting-edge information each and every day for physicians to learn. The most important part of my job is staying knowledgeable and continuing to learn more about products which can change patients lives.

Great company with uncertain future
Specialty PCP Sales Representative Urology (Current Employee) –  Lakeland, FLApril 24, 2018
A great company to work for. Uncertain of what the future holds concerning the pipeline, patent expiration and competition on the horizon. Many recent changes in senior leadership that leads to unanswered questions. More is expected from the Primary Care Representatives than Specialty. If something is dropping in Specialty, the "finger" points at PCP.
Pros
Awesome autonomy with current manager.
Cons
Take advantage of PCP reps.

Great company to work for
Executive Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Boston, MAJanuary 31, 2018
Astellas is a great company to work for. However, there is very little room for advancement because many of the representatives within the field remain in their position which does not allow for advancement. This does not apply for those who are willing to relocate and at this time I am unable to do so.

This company really stands behind their commitment to their employees.
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) –  Norman, okJanuary 24, 2018
This company has great benefits and perks. The opportunities to advance were fair. The management at my location were not up to par but as a subsidary of Astellas, they were known to hide information from headquarters. My location has since closed.

Pros
Awesome cafeteria

Small office with no windows
