    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).

    I have been working at Takeda Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There are some good people scattered throughout

    Cons

    This Company prides itself in being Patient and Physican focused but on. Regular bases will set out to blame these customers for Takeda short comings to the point that it became a culturally exceptable for Leadership to dressed down Doctors in group meetings. This same attitude is taken with employees. When a policy or plan falls short there is a pack mentality by leadership to viciously go after persons who have no responsibility in how that plan was developed or even the execution but are ultimately held up as the poison pills that caused the failure.

    I worked at Takeda Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    There are many pros about the organization which include the people, the location, the total compensation and the products.

    Cons

    The President/ General Manager is a critical one in setting the culture for the organization. CP has never demonstrated Takeda's values of fairness, integrity, honesty and respect. He is a narcissist, cannot make decisions and only likes to hear himself talk. There has never been an occasion when he has shown either care or respect to employees. The culture in Canada can only be described as grossly toxic. The good people are continuously looking for opportunities outside of the organization and where top talent has left, the positions remain open and unfilled leaving it up to those left behind to fill the gaps.
