Pros

Wonderful benefits and very employee-friendly. Shire has been on a positive growth curve the past few years and the people that work here carry that positive energy. Good rewards system for recognizing employees (certificate and cash bonus) as well as larger CEO award process for both individuals and teams.

Cons

Only have minor cons - facility isn't big enough to hold existing staff. There are 4 buildings - it would be nice to consolidate into one. Communiation can be tricky.

Advice to Management

It would be nice to have All-Employee Town Hall meetings - not just the quarterly CEO Blog. Something more formal with financial results, business development plans, company scorecard, etc. would be welcomed.

    Pros

    Superior benefits and 401k matching plan. Opportunity for professional development. Great portfolio for future products in pipeline. Challenging work environment - culture is not for everyone. Ideal candidates are highly motivated, passionate, dedicated individuals who thrive in high paced environments.

    Cons

    Poor work- life balance. Shire operates very lean - which organizationally management is trying to address.

    Advice to Management

    Investment in better tools and esystems to manage workload.
