This company doesn't have much of a pipeline in their neuroscience business unit, company has spend a lot of money in other areas thus their neuroscience BU has taken a hit in regards to compensations.

Transition Trials
Project Associate (Current Employee), Wayne, PAJune 6, 2014
Pros: great sense of team spirit and collaboration working towards the same end result.
Cons: change management
Currently, I work at the Chesterbrook Site, Shire Pharmaceutical has gone through and continues to go through through a period of transition and downsizing in 2013-2014.

Managing a team of 10, during a time of transition has actually been a period of developmental growth. Although sometimes challenging, the team depends on me for consistency, communication, – more... and process control.

As you can imagine, a downsizing can be particularly worrisome for everybody that may be impacted and the unknown. Handling the stress of such an event takes a particular skill at being positive. Some days were quite taxing and other days very exciting as news of the organization would become transparent to the employees of Shire. Managing co-workers feelings on a day-to-day basis proved to be challenging during this time. But determinationm, staying focused and positive kept me going. – less

Don't Do It
Contract Senior Training Specialist (Former Employee), Lexington, MAApril 30, 2014
Pros: the company is trying to do things right
Cons: the management culture is very political
Overall this company is an honest, ethical place to work. They are in a very highly regulated industry, and attempt to do things right. The environment at the upper management level is just very political. The AD for Compliance Training, for example, is a terrible manager.

Fantastic culture with highly motivated, friendly workforce
Business Analyst, RIM (Current Employee), Chesterbrook, PAMarch 26, 2014
I started at Shire as a Kelly Services Intern in Records and Information Management. My job was to assist the Associate Director with the creation of an Information Atlas. My additional duties were developing a Project Charter and a Business Case for a Records Management Application. I learned a great deal about Project Management and Records Management. – more... Shire has a modern culture that allows for the better flow of ideas. Everyone, including Executives, is friendly and approachable. The hardest part of the job is the traffic in the King of Prussia / Chesterbrook area. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people at Shire. People are always smile and say 'hello'. – less

Reimbursement Hotline Analyst (Current Employee), San Diego, CAFebruary 12, 2014
I started with Advanced Bio Healing which was bought out by Shire on the first week I started. The difference in people and culture made ABH/Shire the greatest place i've worked so far. Although we have been sold by Shire, we have been treated more then fair. I would reccomend Shire as a place of employment.
