I worked at Shire full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Above-average pay. Decent facilities in Chesterbrook - fitness center, cafeteria, coffee bar, dry cleaning.

Cons

Top-down leadership run from Massachusetts. Poor change management.

Advice to Management

Communicate truthfully and act with purpose. Don't let employees twist in the wind. Cost cutting is fine and often necessary, but be transparent about the effects.
