Executive Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Lexington, MA – May 30, 2018
Good place to work. However uncertainty strikes at times.Certain departments seem to be all over the place and could use some better structure and better management. a big component to look into is on boarding and training for new hires.
Good People to work with, but Poor Management to deal with

Neuroscience Senior Account Executive Level (Current Employee) – Lexington, MA – April 30, 2018
I have loved my time at Shire and have gained valuable experience across many different therapeutic areas. I have had the pleasure of working for some great leaders and mentors with my 13 years at Shire.
Senior Analyst - Contract Consultant (Current Employee) – Exton, PA – April 24, 2018
Shire is very unique in the products they want to pursue with their customers and has a very strong focus. I just wish they were a bit more flexible with their work from home culture as it was almost non existent.
Validation Engineer (Current Employee) – Lexington, MA – April 22, 2018
Shire is a good place to work, excellent benefits, very diverse and most of the people are very nice. The problem is after the integration with Baxalta everything is mess up. People are making decisions with no knowledge about quality systems or policies of the other company and vice verse. Good people leaving, and its a pain to replace people. Its sad whats happening at the company right now.
Hematology Territory Business Manager (Current Employee) – Keys, FL – April 17, 2018
Shire is a great company to work for, I have been in the company for 2 years. Good benefits!
I don't have the opportunity to work for a good manager, like previous that I have the privilege to work with. Even with my bad experience other managers in the company are very good managers and employees talk great about them.
Shire has the potential to be a great place to work, but the managment hinders the potential. Everyone is set in the old ways of doing things.
Senior Operations Analyst-CAPA Compliance (Current Employee) – Covington, GA – April 9, 2018
I have been with the company for about 4 years from startup to fully functional facility. The issue is management and the lack of support. A lot of the management is set in their ways of doing things the old way and not looking at other options to progress the culture, overall work experience, and just satisfaction in the job itself.
Sales Operations (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – April 5, 2018
Shire is much like many other pharma companies in that it has grown tremendously over the years. In that growth, a few of the cultural pillars that made Shire what it once was has been lost. Management often looks to subordinates to place blame and there is very minimal training for non field based jobs. It's a sink or swim environment.
Lab Systems Administrator (Former Employee) – Covington, GA – April 5, 2018
This is biopharmaceutical company, products are good, but lots politics. Chances of promotion very little for brown skin personnel. it is very nice facility brand new building, products manufactured here for rare diseases.
Going downhill - lots of people happy at takeover news
Associate Director IT Infrastructure Services (Former Employee) – Exton, PA – March 28, 2018
Was a great company but has been going down hill for the last few years. does poor stock performance drive down morale or does poor morale drive down stock price? It used to have a patient first culture but not so much now
Quality Control Analyst (Former Employee) – Lexington, MA – March 14, 2018
I work really hard for this company. I work more than 40 hours per week but my year end review does not reflect my hard work. People are too busy feeling good of themselves and forget to appreciate others' work.
Sr. Manufacturing Technician (Current Employee) – Social Circle, GA – March 13, 2018
Once you are a Manufacturing Tech, it very hard for you to move around or out of manufacturing, they want you there and nowhere else!. A lot of favoritism within the company, you have to know someone in order for you to succeed, they wont notices your work ethics, the amount of hard work that you give them.
lack of coffee for night shift, sometimes 6 up to 8 hours without taking a break, as is a 12hr shift you only get 1 break/lunch.
