WORKING AT SANOFI

At Sanofi, our determination inspires us to work tirelessly to make a difference in people’s lives every day, as we continually strive to create a future where everyone has access to groundbreaking medicines and healthcare.

Working at Sanofi, not only will you be proud to contribute to a company that cares about people, but you will have every opportunity to develop your skills and progress your career across a broad range of business areas and functions. You will play a critical role in defining your career path, and you will be given the appropriate support and resources to deliver results, make a difference, and collaborate with committed colleagues.

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.

RESPECTING DIVERSITY

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.

    Director Regulatory Affairs Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Cambridge, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Sanofi U.S. in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Independent Recruiter sought me out for this role. Process started in 1st week of MAY 2014. Job is in Cambridge MA. Had phone interview with Hiring VP RA on June 13th, and a face to face on AUG 1st. Lost 2 days pay and met only 2 people out of the six on the interview panel. Never got to see the area (would be a full relo). Got a call from HR mid AUG to ask if I had any additional concerns (I did). HR said they would set up another call with VPRA. This is end of AUG 2014 and no call has been set up, no word on if they wish to make an offer. They've been stringing me along for 4 months going on 5. SERIOUSLY??? DO they expect me to just sit on my hands for half a year and be excited to join?? WTF

    Interview Questions
    • No questions were difficult. VP did say that the role may be relocating to western MA-so from a relo stand point, any candidate would have to move more than once to keep job.   View Answer
