Had them as a client. Good culture, good folks, but require tons of hand holding and alignment of everyone tangentially involved to not rub anyone the wrong way. Also U.S. arm is still very much in direct reports to the JP arm for decision-making at the R&D and commercial levels.

Overall, I'd say it's worth considering a role with them. I did.

Hi fishes, a little different question posted here - I am considering moving to London on a job offer. Strange, it may sound but I don’t drink alcohol. I am worried, that going out and drinking is a big part of the work and general culture in the UK, and I may come across as an unapproachable chap which may even effect my career in the longer run. Any serious insights on this topic will be highly appreciated.
