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

Pros

I think the salaries, in general, are very competitive. Good bonus structure as well. There is a very good work-life balance and the benefits are good too.

Cons

The IT organization is one of the weakest groups in the company. There have been 8 CIOs in the past 6 years. The latest IT reorg has been poorly handled.

    I worked at Shire Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers were excellent; time off and company holidays were a plus. Depending on the manager, management was good. Leader in ADHD and the doctors knew it.

    Cons

    Lack of formulary coverage, can make or break you as a representative. Unrealistic goals and expectations. And I had a micromanaging Regional Director...too much drinking of the Kool-Aid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look in the mirror and be realistic. People are laughing at you behind your back.
