    Current Employee - Senior Project Manager in Cambridge, MA

    I have been working at Shire Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits are outstanding. The number of company holidays and the allotted vacation time is great. There is a tight bond between employees and the camaraderie is exceptional.

    Cons

    Promotions are hard to come by, I've seen a lot of good employees get passed up to bring in someone new. There are more times than not where you have to chase people down to get them to do their job, there are problems with accountability. I think the salaries in general are competitive for new talent, however I've seen way to many talented people that have been here for 5 years or more leave for better paying jobs.
