I worked at Genzyme

Pros

They are a well-run organization with open communication between departments. They are community-minded and very fair to their employees. Compensation very satisfactory.

Cons

Much of the work that I spent a lot of time on involved creating usables that were never used by the target audience.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve your communication to the employees involving pending decisions, and company direction. There was much confusion and anxiety in my last days there.

    Pros

    Good company with good benefit

    Too many changes within a short period of time that are not communicated to employee

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management definitely need to improve the level of communication within the departments. Definitely need a stronger leadership team to make the right decisions and clear to their staff.
