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

    Pros

    Very staff orientated. Work-Life balance is a key ethos. A lot of work, constant changes and process improvement. WFH is accepted but really depends on managers and departments. You are rewarded for your hard work.

    Cons

    Salary review is to company minimum policy which is a shame for some very good employees. Some staff members work very hard and line managers should be offering promotion and meaningful salary increase.

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers Good work life balance

    Shire has gone through multiple integration of companies and product without any integrative process or strategy behind In addition everything has been centralised in the US and the top level for Europe is in Switzerland Uk does not play any role and managers are puppets with poor management and competencies skills which is very convenient for the masters oversea Shame with such good product

    I worked at Shire full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent career opportunities Continuous development Very good cooperation with Head Office Work/Life balance

    Cons

    The management from Italy of the Italy/Greece cluster was very poor and there was no planning. They was always about politics and creation of a nice picture for the cluster, which was not real. There was lack of financial experience from Italy resulting to frequent issues and damage to the company. Unfortunately it took 3 years for Shire to realize the problem and isolate those people.
