A very positive learning experience but frustration when it came to career growth and support by direct management.

    I worked at Shire Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Shire has the potential to be a great company. The staff (at A.D. and below) is competent and collaborative. The disposable technology is very impressive.

    Cons

    The Senior Management is a joke. Most of the VPs have been there for years and were promoted by default and most of them are at least two levels above level competency. Anyone who understands Leadership can see how obvious the incompetence is at that level. It is compounded by a Good Ole Boys arrogance at that level.The HR department is the worst I've ever seen in the 25 years I've been in the industry. Incompetence and underhandedness is rampant in that department. It is such an insincere group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean Sweep the MA Senior Management and HR. Both groups give Shire such a bad name. The staff under Director is very competent but could use better guidance. That won't happen with the current cast of characters at the Senior Management level. Get rid of the HR group. They define insincerity.
