Current Employee - Director in Lexington, MA

I have been working at Shire Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Product and patient focus. The science and benefit to patients

Cons

Working at Shire Lexington you will be enveloped into a powerful caste system characterized by employees who perform like drones and stepford wives, parroting company speak, with a management culture that penalizes decenters and nonconformists. Consequently, Shire only learns and gains knowledge from other party loyalists. Over the past five years we have lost a lot of talented people in all organizations and levels. They have been replaced by others who come from similar cultures and can assimilate happily. Unfortunately, for those of us who respect and seek knowledge through honest and spirited debate, find that shinning the emperors symbols of self-righteousness is stifling and career limiting.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Understand that although the Plebeian's among them may not share the same pedigree or visual wrapper, they too add value, even if their ideas and presentation of thoughts don't conform to the party line.
