Takeda Pharmaceutical made sure to slim legacy employees as much as possible.
When will upper management at Shire realize that employees are the backbone of this company? Some of them are so disconnected with us in our department that I look at one or two of them and think “aren’t we on the same team?” We are given unrealistic... — read more
When I think of Shire, I picture a boat with no rudder, floating aimlessly with no sense of direction and that’s what this company is going through. There is very little guidance from department heads due to so many changes taking place both in... — read more

Shire does buy out companies and layoff people in a short amount of time with no offer to transfer within the company.

Shire is a really bad company to work for. You will eventually be laid off - this company is going nowhere and will either fold or be acquired. The leadership has only one interest - extract as much money for themselves. Salesforce is average, R&D is... — read more
