Shire used to be a great company to work for. Real sense of team work and everyone banding together to get the job done. Nothing like that anymore. Very much a disjointed company now, with everyone looking after their own area, and not working with others.

Basically, they seem to attract & recruit only Caucassian people in Upper Management and are generally very racist ( the young LPN Nurses inbred on Fox News) are some of the most ignorant, racist, un- evolved human beings from the hills of PA . But overall- the entire company is racist. They market& target minorities but refuse to practice diversity in management especially. Its a good Civil Rights Case ready to happen- esp under a non Trump Administration.
Pros
If you're white-- and ignorant- Fellowship
Cons
All white at top

Limited growth for some positions. May be political. Some areas suffer from high attrition rate due to limited growth opportunities and lack of work life balance.

For the first 3 years had a great manager, felt great about my work and direction provided. Transparency and inclusiveness. Felt great about Takeda and the work they are involved in. I receive a promotion. Then my manager was promoted and my new manager was in a different location and basically kept me out of the loop and then found fault with all of the work I was doing. I had support from co-workers, but not from my manager.

Good place to start your career as entry level. If you’re looking to stay in same job doing the same tasks all day this is the job for you. If you want to develop your skills and career this is not the place for you.

The company has great potential. They need to foster their leadership team to help them grow to their full potential. Also learn how to communicate with employees about the company’s goals

Takeda was a great place to work. Well resourced and the people, benefits and facilities were great. Active pipeline. Then there was a "merger" with TAP (Takeda & Abbott joint venture) with a pretty much dead pipeline. Takeda employees got the worst of that deal. TAP employees were all promoted just before the merger was complete and most of the true (and experienced) Takeda employees got let go. I was replaced by someone who had NO experience running the department they were supposed to be responsible for and from an organization that was technically and professional behind the times. They also fought payment of unemployment insurance.

They are very good at teaching you what you need to know to be a competitive chemist in the industry. The new renovated building has many features that allow for it to be the leading pharmaceutical company in this area.

J’y ai travaillé quatre moi et si c’était à refaire j’y retournerai. Dès que l’on montre de l’intérêt pour son travail les gens viennent vers vous pour vous soutenir. C’était une belle expérience.

Outstanding culture, rooted ok Japanese’s culture. The fragmentation of the commercial area is certainly a little challenging. Leadership is looking up (never down).

Even told by management hard to move up in supply chain and in the facility in general without a degree. Low pay for pharmaceuticals. Expect around $15 an hour tops. Raises are low $.30 at the most a year. Toxic and hostile environment and poor management. Only certain employees are valued everyone else your just a number. If you want a career look elsewhere. A lot of management is from California
