    I worked at Shire Pharmaceuticals

    Pros

    Great benefits, company time off and really good people.

    Cons

    IT Management cannot make a decision and stick with it. There is no real IT strategy even though most of the staff are an associate director or above (more than 2/3) and there is too much work that has been outsourced. This leads to constant fire fighting by the staff and no real opportunity to do something strategic. If you are looking for a place to earn a paycheck then Shire's not a bad place to go but if you are interested in advancement of your career and knowledge then you might want to look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can't say replace the CIO; that has happened 4 times in 6 years, which speaks to the inability to stick with a decision.
