    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Shire full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They never cut corners They always did the right thing and they never short changed their employees

    Cons

    Carried alot of dead weight For the same reason as the pros they had a lot of non performers and plus you realise Flemmings game was to set up the company to be sold so that he could make a pretty penny. I hope his new found wealth does not make him happy.

    Advice to Management

    Gone but not forgotten

        No opinion of CEO

        I worked at Shire full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Pharma standard pay and benefits

        Cons

        Worked in the plant for biotech product. Poor and political leadership. Senior management who wants people to follow instructions without leading by example and influencing. Culture was suffocating because culture does not promote cross cultural teamwork and pointing fingers when things went wrong. Lots of unhealthy criticism and judgement and backstabbing between employees. Leads to prior good performers in prior companies...

        Advice to Management

        Hire the right people, promote the right culture. Help and support colleagues who seem to be poorly adapting to culture and don't listen to unrighteous gossip promoting toxic.
