While at Shire, I supported the Vice President Total Rewards and Talent Management. The pace was very fast and a wonderful learning experience.
Pros: Learning how a Human Resource department functions.
Cons: The department was restructured, which forced layoffs.
What I learned while at Shire I took with me to other positions. While working in Human Resources, I was able to experience the "other side" of the Human Resource world. My co-workers were wonderful to work with, we worked as a team. I miss that team spirit.
