Our Core Values:

Culture Icon1


Pharmaceutical innovation and therapeutic advances have had a dramatic impact on the lives of millions of people throughout the world. Innovation is our passion, as well as a fundamental requirement in our ongoing pursuit to create innovative, world-class medicines.

Culture Icon2


We are distinguished by integrity. We strive not only to do things right, but to do the right things to improve the health and well-being of patients.

Culture Icon3


Accountability is the cornerstone of our culture. It is at the intersection of research and patient need that we find our greatest challenges and our most extraordinary opportunities. We demonstrate our compassion for people by honoring our commitments to all those who depend on us to provide innovative therapies to patients.

A Commitment to Excellence

Continuous improvement is one of the ideals that guides us. To that end, we encourage employees to learn and grow through assignments and through training, and constantly to set their sites higher.

We also value recognition, and say “thank you” – or “Arigato” – to our employees for their efforts, through internal recognition and competitive compensation.

Daiichi Sankyo offers the opportunity to learn, to grow and to explore new ways of thinking. It's a respectful yet challenging environment, where we work together to help our patients, our partners, and one another.
