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

Pros

I think the salaries, in general, are very competitive. Good bonus structure as well. There is a very good work-life balance and the benefits are good too.

Cons

The IT organization is one of the weakest groups in the company. There have been 8 CIOs in the past 6 years. The latest IT reorg has been poorly handled.

    I have been working at Shire as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    An emphasis on attempting new tasks and maintaining good work-life balance provides me with great personal growth and low stress.

    Cons

    The transition has exposed an intransigence to change their daily routine; it is sometimes hard to interact with them.

    Advice to Management

    There is a consistent theme of encouragement and constructive criticism shown by my supervisors; this emboldens a creative and eager employee such as myself. Each day, when I go into work and perform my daily tasks, I try to go the extra mile because I actually like my supervisors and want them to succeed in their projects. The encouragement I receive by taking on new roles and conveying my own ideas for innovation make me feel very appreciated and willing to work hard. I do not know if this is the overall attitude of each manager within Shire, but it is a great way to run a company.
