    Pros

    They always try do what is right, by the patient and employees. Positive working environment. Opportunities for development and career advancement with acquisition of Shire.

    Cons

    The company is extremely large now with the acquisition, so departments seem siloed. Many sales managers and reps are mediocre at best but allowed to coast with no consequences. Very conservative culture.
