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

    Pros

    I had an amazing boss who encouraged growth and education, the Purchasing dept was an amazing group to work with, and the pay was great with the company along with their benefits and other company perks.

    Cons

    Once the merger/buyout occurred, it was impossible to get a direct answer to our inquiries. Honesty and open communication would have helped the atmosphere and employee moral.

    Pros

    Great Salary, benefits among best in industry, great work/life balance. Enjoyed feeling like I was making a difference.

    Cons

    not a lot of new information comes out on a regular basis to present to doctors. That can be challenging when in an office every week and nothing new to convey

    Pros

    Can't think of a thing!

    Cons

    Some senior management is just a absolute disgrace. I don't want anything to do with a company that condones the behavior and attitude of certain SVP's.
