    I have been working at Takeda Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    I joined Takeda Canada over 3 months ago and it was one of the best decisions that i've made in my career. Unlike the bigger pharma companies, Takeda Canada is very much like a start-up - learning as they grow. The employees have an opportunity to make a difference should they chose to. Having worked at several multinationals, there's no other company that I've worked for, where I was empowered and so supported to have an impact in such a short period of time. I can say that the majority of the people that I work with truly cares, are smart, inclusive, and collaborative. And yes, the company like any start-up isn't where it needs to be now , but there is a strong commitment at the global/region level on all of the right things which is very encouraging. How exciting and rewarding it is to be part of that journey to shape this!!

    Cons

    Not really a con - but those that aren't adaptable to change and aren't willing to embrace changes would not be the right fit for the company (thus explaining the other reviews).

    Advice to Management

    The company is transforming in the right direction both for the business and for its culture. The successes will take time and it will encouraging to see management continue to support that - thinking long-term and remembering that it takes time to build a strong foundation and to accept that there will be hiccups along the way.

    Chef de produit/product manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Takeda Pharmaceuticals (Paris (France)) in March-2016.

    Interview

    Processus en 4 entretiens sur 4 jours consécutifs :
    L'entreprise n'hésite pas à vous faire déplacer pour 30min de rdv plutôt que de coordonner les entretiens sur une ou 2 journées.
    1- une personne des RH (2h)
    2- un collaborateur d'une autre équipe (30min)
    3- la manager (1h)
    4- le n+2 (30min)

    Takeda ne m'a jamais fait de retour malgré une relance par mail et par téléphone : aucun réponse !
    Alors que bien entendu les 4 personnes que j'ai rencontré m'avait dit "vous aurez une reponse sous 10 jours". Et la RH "que ce soit négatif ou positif on vous rappelle"

    -- > avant de recruter des gens pour TRAVAILLER, merci aux RH de penser à faire LEUR BOULOT
