    I have been working at Shire full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefit. If you are good at politics and B.S. this is the company for you. Guarantee rising to the top

    Cons

    Terrifying senior management with no vision and fake credential/experience. They are excellent in turning a profitable product into a complete compliance and business nightmare. Company overspend money on expensive travel and high compensation for senior manager while squeeze the worker bees to death. If you are a good contributor, expect no rewards and no promotion, but please do know that your colleague who is good at B.S. and your manager will gladly take the credit for your work. When you are taking on more than 5 people's job, please do expect Shire will lay you off for the better of One Shire vision because your reward for hardworking is lay off. Company has no strategy, no vision, no marketing but good at buying companies and tear the brand apart.

    Advice to Management

    I surely hope Flemming and senior management know what they are doing. At the current course, company is not doing well and have all the garbage people remain.Lastly, if you plan to layoff hardworking employee, please get it done and over with, dragging on forever only destroy the morale

    Shire is an innovative company with a great mission

    Cut the politics. Hire quality people. Step beyond your egos.
