Does Takeda Pharmaceuticals pay for professional licenses?

Pros

Get to learn how to run a company to the bottom

Cons

They acquired Shire out of fear that pipeline has drained and soon investors will find out, and CXOs can no longer cash in tens of millions dollars annually. So they made the decision to swallow an elephant, let go thousands of hardworking employees who have a family to feed. There’s no innovation of kind involved, anyone with elementary level education can get it the maths to work - merge two large systems, lay off tons, streamline operations, and you get beautiful top and bottom numbers out of the power of synergy! It’s just a financial trick to get by for another 3-5 years but not sustainable for the long run, no innovation or vision required. True innovative pharmaceutical invest in their people and technology, acquire solid assets, build deep pipeline, and celebrated/share its success with people, this company does everything opposite.

Does Takeda Pharmaceuticals offer housing assistance?

Pros

Pay is great for Japan Company housing allowance is nice

Cons

Work is very disorganized compared to Takeda Global To many meetings, pre-meeting for the pre-meeting, and post meeting for the post meetings. If you are not Japanese, you will not advance, as told by my manager Takeda Japan is all about appearance not achievement like Takeda Global When you bring issues to HR, they sweep under the rug They don't tell you about resident tax before you join (very expensive)

Advice to Management

Upper management needs to do a complete redo of all mid and low management at Shonan iPARK.

Company housing allowance is nice
