Shire used to be a great company to work for. Real sense of team work and everyone banding together to get the job done. Nothing like that anymore. Very much a disjointed company now, with everyone looking after their own area, and not working with others.

Job Culture
A highly automated fast paced work environment that involves continuous training and high levels of attention to detail and absolute compliance to standards.
There is a high turnover of staff as salary is at the lower end of the industry scale. A lot of employment opportunities in the industry.

Working 12 hour shifts can be physically demanding and garbing is a challenge for many.

Fellow employees a generally helpful and the canteen facilities are good.

Toxic Culture. Rife with nepotism. Very high turnover. No professionalism. No career development. How they can get a licence to produce medicines is beyond me.

I work 24/5 shift at present.
My main role would be to Run the blister packing machine, also the secondary side machines.

Daily Stock control in to and out of production rooms.

I also have been part of many projects in the packaging department.


Don't really know what to about the management (Privacy and all that we are thought here) apart from they are good at what they do.


The hardest part of the job? After 15 years here I find it hard to pick something that is hard?


The most enjoyable part of the job.

Would be training new staff. I seem to be the chosen one when it comes to training new staff.
Pros
Health care, 2 Bonuses a year, Pension.
Cons
Don't really have any. I like my employers. Like my job and the people I work with.
