Going through Change
Associate Manager, Sales Planning Group (Former Employee) – Parsippany, NJ – July 25, 2018
When I first started working for Daiichi Sankyo, it was a fabulous place to work. The company supported me throughout my career, and I grew and learned so much working there. I also always found that the company did its utmost to do right by its employees. The amount and level of opportunity afforded me at the company was impressive, and it was an honor and privilege to work there.
However, it is a pharmaceutical organization, and the demands of working there are very high. As the organization faced financial concerns due to a shrinking pipeline, those demands grew. Additionally, as change accelerated at the company while financial resources diminished, a number of things that made the company so great were slowly eroding away - including its phenomenal culture.
I believe very strongly that once the company gets back on its feet and steadies out a bit, it can return to be the amazing place that it once was. For the right individuals, willing to take on a challenging environment in high amounts of transition, I think its a great opportunity. If you are looking for job security, now is probably not the best time. Regardless, working at a company that cares about doing the right thing, and cares about its clients and patients so deeply, is truly a wonderful and rewarding thing.
