    I worked at Shire full-time

    Pros

    Not sure to be honest

    Cons

    When a lot of employees are saying from all over the world that you are driving this company to the ground and you constantly ignore all the signals and cannot be bothered to listen just proves that there is no hope left for you or for this company under this management. Constantly bragging at the town hall meetings (saying nothing of essence at the same time )does not reflect the reality of us ,simple people trying to cope with the madness and constant bad decisions making. What are you trying to do is more like jumping from the Empire Building unto the ground hoping you will make it and dragging hundreds of ppl after you in the same time. I have never seen such bad management and narcissistic way of taking decisions,lack of logical reasoning in all that you do,you want to look good and have others pay the price.
