I worked at Shire Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Above-average pay. Decent facilities in Chesterbrook - fitness center, cafeteria, coffee bar, dry cleaning.

Cons

Top-down leadership run from Massachusetts. Poor change management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate truthfully and act with purpose. Don't let employees twist in the wind. Cost cutting is fine and often necessary, but be transparent about the effects.

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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and 401(k). Competitive salary and bonus package.

    Cons

    Senior leadership is clueless and arrogant. Execution and communication very poor in a rather bureaucratic organization. Far too much empire building. If you are not prepared to relocate to Lexington your prospects for career advancement are zero.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize talent within.
