    I have been working at Shire full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great salary, great facilities (gym), great benefits. The cafeteria is decent as well. Great coworkers. Work was interesting as well.

    Cons

    Besides getting laid off (which we all saw coming) I feel as if Shire is an old school pharma company, they need to get with the times and cater to the newer generations. Most departments had flexibility and work from home opportunities and then some departments didn't. Unlike their peers there was no company wide policy. Work like balance wasn't great.

    Pros
