    Restructure culture

    Director (Current Employee) Basingstoke, England (UK)

    ProsShire used to be a company that allowed individuals to have clear career progression. Its unclear if this will still be the case with the new CEO

    ConsThe restructure is trying to mould Shire into a template. Individual country and portfolio needs are not being taken into account. There is a complete disregard for senior management and those that are in the leadership team arent showing a level of trust of CEO that woud be respected. I wouldnt join Shire now until restructure is complete. I suspect Shire will be sold off prior to the restructure being complete

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
