    I have been working at Shire Pharmaceuticals

    Pros

    401k match and salaries are the only thing to come for. I am very proud to have met and worked with everyone at my level.

    Cons

    Communication and culture are among the worst I've experienced. There is a huge accountability gap in middle/upper management. Our local group of 8 I.C.'s had 6 managers, 5 of whom were associate director and director. The mid level management at Shire is engaged in empire building

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One could offer no advice that would be accepted. This is due to the accountability gap in mid level management, where people are promoted for rubbing elbows correctly. There are many 'Yertle the Turtles' that need dismissing.
