I have been working at Shire Pharmaceuticals as a contractor (less than a year)

Pros

I love the culture here. I'm in Manufacturing and we work as a team. I love the 4 day work week and I really like that Shire makes a difference in people's lives. They have awesome group activities. We work hard, but it's rewarding.

Cons

Sometimes there's a lack of communication. Can be a high pressure job trying to be perfect and not get any deviations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees who make suggestions and implement common sense solutions. Sometimes things are made more difficult than they have to be, and sometimes I feel like I'm not heard unless I'm adamant about a particular topic

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, ammenities like nice office space, food at meetings and good food in cafeteria. Nice suburban location in Wayne, PA

    Cons

    Top management was constantly changing, and with it the entire strategy for the company. From the time I started until I left 3 years later, there was only one consistent person on the board! Strategy changes meant major layoffs so there is no stability working there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You keep saying you're not big pharma, but you are big pharma. You have great values, but only for the worker bees. Top management doesn't subscribe to them!

    Thin and act like a start up....you got a wealth of talent in the organization, just need to engage these folks....
