LEARNING AND PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT
Every Sanofi employee has the opportunity to broaden skills and develop expertise that will make a positive impact on the company’s success, and theirs.
We strive to provide employees with the necessary resources and tools they need to grow and develop within our company, empowering each employee to take full advantage of learning opportunities to further their career. Whether it’s on-the-job, through modular eLearning or by participating in local and global development programs, they develop invaluable skills for the future. In addition, we encourage employees to become involved in cross-functional and international project teams as a key component of their learning and development within a matrix organisational environment.
At a global level, our learning centers and functional academies enable our people to develop their expertise and discover how they can work and act differently in their contribution to the company’s sustainable performance. Across the company, we share a common understanding of the competencies and behaviours needed to achieve our goals.
CAREER DEVELOPMENT AND MOBILITY
At Sanofi, we strive to provide a professional environment that challenges, develops, and fosters new learning and ideas, while encouraging all employees to develop their skills and pursue their career ambitions.
Cross-functional mobility is strongly encouraged across a broad spectrum of different business activities and functions. International mobility opportunities arise when there is a need to transfer skills or knowledge, or as part of a defined talent development plan. Each employee plays a critical role in exploring new opportunities and roles within the company with the support and guidance of their manager.
Supporting career development and mobility across the Group, our global Talent Management process helps us to identify, develop and manage our talents throughout the organisation, ensuring that the right people are in the right positions to enable the Group to achieve our business goals.
Through a robust and continuous talent review process, we:
- Capitalize on the best talent resources
- Develop our pipeline of future leaders
- Recognise and mobilize key talents as a shared resource across the Group
- Foster and drive our performance culture
RECOGNITION AND REWARDS
At Sanofi, our rewards are strongly connected to business achievement, team success and individual performance.
Every employee has the opportunity to exchange with their manager, agree to annual performance and development goals, and determine how they can be accomplished. These are typically reviewed at mid-year and at the year-end, when each employee has an assessment discussion to evaluate their performance and development progress. This review takes into account not only their short-term performance, but also their skills and competencies, potential, and commitment in a longer term.
Total compensation encompasses the financial rewards, services and benefits an employee may receive. It recognizes individual performance and internal equity, while taking into account local market positioning. We also ensure equal compensation between women and men in similar roles. Our benefit plans aspire to fairness, solidarity, respect for others and compliance with local regulations and cultures, as well as encouraging social and individual accountability.
As a global company that respects all cultures, Sanofi regards the diversity of our people and the talents they offer as a source of innovation, cultural enrichment and performance. We embrace our responsibility to promote diversity in all its forms, in terms of gender equality, age, ethnicity/nationality, social and cultural background, disability, sexual orientation or religion. We recognise that our company should reflect the diversity of people in the global society in which we live and work.
An essential piece of our diversity strategy focuses on empowering women in our business. We are committed to advancing women’s leadership in every country and culture in which we operate and today, women account for 37% of our key positions and over 45% of our managers.
We believe that employment is the best means of social integration. It is part of our ambition to change the way people look at disabled people and the work they can do. This is why we are committed to integrating disabled employees, supporting employees who have become disabled, encouraging sub-contracting activities to specialized handicap centers, and enhancing awareness about disability in the workplace.
Sanofi acknowledges and respects that employees live diverse lives. Ensuring our employees maintain a healthy balance between their private and professional lives is an important part of our diversity policy. Whether it’s flexible working hours or providing family support services such as daycare, Sanofi is committed to respecting our employees’ private lives and providing a diversity of resources for them to achieve their goals.

I applied online. The process took 12 months - interviewed at Sanofi U.S..Interview Details
Applied online and was contacted by HR. Phone interview with hiring manager the following month, and onsite a month later with hiring manager and his manager. Things seemed to go well but slow. Hiring manager invited me to connect on LinkedIn and kept up with communications. He said there were a lot of vacations in the summer and they wanted to select someone in a few months. This was ok with me because I was only passively searching. He later told me that the position was on hold for about a month.
Almost a year after my initial interview, another recruiter contacted me to come in for a “hiring blitz” where they were interviewing multiple candidates for various positions. The same hiring manager was present as well as some others, and he sent me a note to say that he would see me there. It seemed positive. The recruiter said to follow up with him the following week.
The recruiter never responded to my emails, and I never heard anything back. I felt it was rude to go through 3 rounds of interviews and not have any response. The position was open for well over a year, indicating that this group was slow to make decisions and probably had a lot of red tape. It’s too bad because the company itself seemed like a great place to work.Interview Questions
