I worked at Genzyme

Pros

The people at Genzyme Diagnostics are friendly and easy to get along with. Everyone is very helpful. This makes for a great working environment.

Cons

Not much opportunity to grow career-wise. Advancement is a frequently a long, years of service-based process regardless of achievements.

Decisions from the higher ups are communicated at the last moment and take most people by surprise. There is a definite disconnect between management and employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My advice to management is to communicate more often and more effectively with employees so they understand the reasoning behind business decisions.

    Chaos in documentation and procedures and process.
    Need to upgrade systems and service

    I have been working at Genzyme

    Pros

    Committed employees who genuinely care about our patients.

    Cons

    Senior management that has lost touch with what made this a great place to work.
    Integration efforts are haphazard and need more focus.
    Driven by cost savings to show investors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Worry a bit less about quarter to quarter results and look at long term strategy.
