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

Pros

I love the culture here. I'm in Manufacturing and we work as a team. I love the 4 day work week and I really like that Shire makes a difference in people's lives. They have awesome group activities. We work hard, but it's rewarding.

Cons

Sometimes there's a lack of communication. Can be a high pressure job trying to be perfect and not get any deviations.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees who make suggestions and implement common sense solutions. Sometimes things are made more difficult than they have to be, and sometimes I feel like I'm not heard unless I'm adamant about a particular topic
