No opinion of CEO

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.

    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.
