    I worked at Takeda Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    The company was great to work for. They had events often and competitive benefits (gym reimbursement, good healthcare, flex hours).

    Cons

    My experience with management was tough. This company should look to hire an outside company to regularly check on management styles/habits. I think this would improve the culture.
