Very unique culture
Senior Scientist (Former Employee) –  Andover, MADecember 16, 2017
Sometimes management became a very Japanese-like style, meaning people already agreed on one decision before the decision-making meeting. Hard to demonstrate top-down execution
Pros
Seek for the most suitable decision on matter
Cons
Slow decision making process

Once great to work for, poor management now
Director (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 23, 2017
What was once a great company has become a shell of its former self. Poor management has cultivated an angry, hostile culture of blame. A once fun, dynamic, and professional place to work is now the opposite of its former self.
Pros
Highly compensated
Cons
Hostile management from the top down

Junior Eng (Former Employee) –  RTPJuly 30, 2015
Great company, really great. Directors are chosen because they are mediocre. They don't do anything. Management doesn't give a dam.

Review Summary for Eisai
Medical Sales Specialist (Current Employee) –  Columbus, OHJuly 23, 2015
A typical day at work for me is to go where my business is and generate more. Where I do not have business, I try to capture business by excellent communication, building strong relationships and being a credible resource.
Management at Eisai is fair. I do not feel Im in a stable position with Eisai due to inadequate pipeline.
My team members are awesome. We all help each other and work very well as a team.
The hardest part of the job is access to the right customers.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the rewarding feeling of helping children and adults with severe epilepsy.
Pros
Helping others, excellent benefits, company is very patient centric.
Cons
Unstable, weak pipeline, access to certain physicians

Awesome benefits
Director, Finance (Current Employee) –  Woodcliff Lake, NJMay 5, 2015
Eisai has a good work life balance but lately that has started to change for the worse. Awesome Benefits. The coworkers are amazing and it is a fun place to work. However, lately some of the flagship products have had challenges and I see couple of tough years for Eisai from the revenue perspective.

Productive
Aseptic Tech (Current Employee) –  Research Triangle Park, NCJanuary 9, 2015
Not really busy everyday, the only time that we are busy is when we have fill going on or other projects going on. Learned a lot about working with an isolator. Not much room for advancement and unsure about what the future holds for the company. Management has a hard time making a decision on whether or not how to solve a problem. The people are friendly for the most part but you do have some that are out there to make it rough for you.

Oncology Sales Specialist (Former Employee) –  OROctober 24, 2013
During eleven years with Eisai, my role changed a few times. I sold to a variety of specialists and territories. Like many other companies I had a series of good managers who were each different but each dedicated to the company and the sales reps they led. The hardest part of the job was maintaining focus on customer needs while complying with increasing company needs for more reports and information due to changes within the medical and pharmaceutical industries. I enjoyed my colleagues and many clients and staff. I loved learning new things and being challenged.
Pros
Products, Pipeline, focus on patients, employee benefits, and sales professionals.
Cons
Limited growth opportunities.
