I had a great experience at Takeda, learning from and educating Japanese employees to become more of a global company. Strong senior management team seeking to transform the company to more of a global presence, good benefits and compensation, long work hours, a little hesitancy to become westernized to make up for lack of growth in Japanese pharmaceutical industry.
It was a year for globalizing and scaling up for Takeda Pharmaceutical. All hands were on deck to make the largest M&A of a Japanese pharmaceutical company to succeed. It was very exciting yet a bit unnerving as there will be business areas that would be divested and employees will lose their jobs.
