    I have been working at Shire full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Nice campus in Lexington MA. Rare disease products are very important to patients' lives.

    Cons

    Employees generally feel expendable. We are typiclaly overworked under impossible deadlines. There are few opportunities to advance within the company which typically hires talent from outside. Shire is quick to fire people who don't fit in which engenders a chilling "sink or swim" atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Invest some resources to beef up the HR group with people who specialize in taking care of employees. Encourage a culture where managers are rewarded for developing their people by hiring from within.
