SPCT (Current Employee) – Mentor, OH – January 9, 2019
I've been working here for sometime now and I have to say that this place is an absolute joke. The management is pure narcissists especially two of the CS. They allow the management to talk to you any kind of way they feel like that day. They need and ethics and communication training for sure. I've never seen any managers so lazy. They let kids fresh out of high school run the place. It's so much back stabbing and butt kissing its pathetic. Everybody is in everybody's business. They work you like a slave 8 to 10 hours with no real breaks. God forbid if you happen to have an emergency and call off you won't hear the end of it. People walk around either sad or mad all day long. They have one CS that does whatever she wants and makes up SOP's as she sees fit. Please stay away from this place.!!!!

Great place to work but don't contract here, they are undergoing a buyout and you will be let go. The workplace is a great place to be and everyone is really friendly. If you don't like people talking very loudly at their desks its not for you though.
Sr. Business Analyst (Current Employee) – Bannockburn, IL – January 3, 2019
What once started as Baxter is now going to be its 4th different company in 5 years. While my area is pretty specialized and safe, there is no room for growth and I have not been promoted once since starting here.
CMMS Coordinator - Contract (Current Employee) – Lexington, MA – December 26, 2018
Shire is a great company to work for. Laid back environment with minimal stress. As a contractor with Shire I had the opportunity to gain a more in depth knowledge of cGMP / SOP policies and procedures. Management was greatly involved with training.
Utilities Operations Technician II (Current Employee) – Covington, GA – December 23, 2018
I have enjoyed working at Shire but am looking to advance. My first three years at shire have been very educational as I didn't have Pharmaceutical experience. Now that I have some experience I want to put my engineering degree to use.
Senior Quality Technician VI (Former Employee) – Covington, GA – December 21, 2018
Poor Management, not truly therebfor their employees. Only there for themselves only. Clickish work environment. Money is the only true incentive there. Watch yourself when speaking up about any good or bad issues. You will become a target for managment.
Director ERP (Former Employee) – Exton, PA – December 13, 2018
An exponential growth oriented company that requires employees enjoy challenges, problem solving, quick decisions, high integrity, collaboration, innovation, frequent changes, and most of all, hungry for career growth and learning.
Senior Lead Technician (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – December 10, 2018
They staff per business need and they will ask you to leave for the day if it is slow. Training is mediocre at best. The good thing about this job is you do not have to have a phlebotomy certification in order to work here. You will be on your feet for the entire day with minimal breaks for a 8 hour shift. It is definitely a corporate faced environment.
Sr Talent Acquisition Consultant (Contractor) (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – December 6, 2018
This is a highly collaborative work environment. Teamwork and integrity are just a few of the key values. Employees take pride in the fact that the work that they do has a positive impact on patients with rare diseases who require specialized medicine.
LPN/ Medical Specialist (Former Employee) – Broken Arrow, OK – December 4, 2018
This place is a joke- very disrespectful to nurses- EXTREMELY POOR TRAINING, lots of DRAMA & backstabbing. They basically allow high schoolers mange the floor. I worked there 9 DAYS and that was more than enough for me- the first 3-4 days were 10 hours of “SOPS”- sitting at the computer watching videos and when you try to take a break the “trainer” doesn’t allow you to or you have to stay longer than scheduled. When you don’t finish the “SOPS” within 10 hrs- four days straight, they immediately skip over it and try to throw you on the floor without correct training- u definitely will not use nursing skills it’s more like a sales pitch- terrible terrible place- I wouldn’t recommend this place to my worst enemy.
Insurance takes effect immediately
Hostile work environment, poor management, lots of drama, poor training, work schedule changes daily, disrespectful to nurses, poor pay
Senior GL Accountant (Current Employee) – Exton, PA – December 1, 2018
Shire has a very typical corporate culture. They work employees to the grind. Employees are well compensated. The higher ups are disconnected from general pop. Constant pressure to run lean-do more with less.
Excellent company; work/life balance / freedom to make imdependent decisions.
QUALITY ASSURANCE - CONSULTANT (Former Employee) – Lexington, MA – November 13, 2018
The workday is completely focused on doing your job. Praise and criticism are given appropriately and frequently. Excellent environment; workspace, location, cafeteria is excellent, and a subsidized Starbucks!
Manager, Global Supplier Quality (Current Employee) – Bannockburn, IL – November 9, 2018
Shire is a great company with many benefits. I am just currently looking for what is next when I want to do what I am doing full-time from a different location. With the Takeda purchase - not necessarily knowing what the future holds.
Worked on a passion project for kids requiring-implantable spinal docks
Clinical Trial Associate (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – November 7, 2018
This was a very fast paced and high-energy environment, this allowed an employee to reach his/her full potential. No ideas were shot down without proper vetting. This was a true testament to the mission driven culture produced by Shire.
Sr Manufacturing Technician / Work (Current Employee) – Covington, GA – November 2, 2018
Upper management are out of touch with things that are needed to do our job in a safe and efficient manner. Many times we voice our concerns where our concerns are rarely heard. Add that to the poor work/life balance, this is a company I definitely wouldn't recommend.
Quality Assurance Specialist (Current Employee) – Covington, GA – November 2, 2018
Shire Covington could be an excelent place for career growth for people with experience and young people to start their careers and within company. Unfortunately management is terrible. Most of manufacturing management are not qualified for these positions and they cannot perform their responsibilities and depend too much on others, leaving their groups practically with no support. Hiring process is based on friendship or for people with talking skills. Promotions are not based on employee performance. HR doesnt follow their own rules when people apply, all depending of who it is. The culture is terrible and it makes good employees feel unvaluabled.
