Shire is a good company to work for but lately it seems to be growing quicker than it can handle and employees seem to be suffering from this growth in regards to benefits.

Know your value and your worth. The industry is becoming dependant on alliances - I'm biased - women do a better job recruiting them quickly and managing them.

    Maybe. I was senior management, and the deck was stacked with men who wanted women to do the details while the men were in charge. A great company, I loved my job and team mates. But I wouldn't recommend it to women who aren't politically and business savvy or voice better ideas and execute flawless tactics to accomplish the plan's goal.

This cimpany is a meritocracy. Those with relationship and technical skills go far.

Madam Picky

Senior Director

R&D (non-lab)

January 1970

In R&D, most of the leadership is male, but individual departments do have a better balance of men and women (my department head is male but his direct reports are half and half). Family friendliness and flexibility does depend in part on one's individual manager; my boss does not have kids but has been very understanding if I need to deal with kid stuff - as long as I get my work done, he doesn't keep close tabs on me.

Maternity is generous, but finding time to pump throughout the day, and flexibility as far as working from home/telecommuting/leaving early isn't really there. Not a very family friendly work environment unless you're a manager or above, or you've been working there for years and years.
