Good cross-departmental and cross-functional exposure

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Shire Pharmaceuticals full-time

ProsExcellent benefits, competitive salary, convenient location, opportunities to grow and learn within your role, competitive Bonus program. Good exposure across functions and groups with other staff of your same level.

ConsCurrent restructuring has led to a preference of hiring from outside the company instead of promoting from within. Very hierarchical in structure, lots of focus on what your title is rather than respect for your knowledge or experience.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Chesterbrook, PA

I have been working at Shire Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than a year


Pros: Friendly employees (below manager levels), satisfactory compensation, but facing downward pressures due to the changing labor market, access to cheaper contract… Cons: Unfriendly and over-staffed middle management. The ratio of managers to staff is strangely high given the size of the organization. You often find… Advice to Senior Management: Align business units already; it's been a few years now. New CEO says the right things, but will need to see what changes are… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
