    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Shire full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good facilities but nothing you won't get at another company , nice location on Baggot Street but not good when you work late at night. Free coffee tea and water so they are at least better than Ryan Air .

    Cons

    No transparency No communication No one to one's Run like a call centre Boys network Pfeizer network No work life balance Drinking culture with the SMT Zero HR presence Not a centre of excellence- just get it done and worry about the consequences afterwards
