I worked at Genzyme full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Genzyme has many bright and talented workers. Important goal is to treat unmet medical need and fairly good research facilities.

Cons

Little sense of direction and no job security-more layoffs are likely in the offing, after 3 waves so far. Projects often terminated after much work, even when successful. Very poor esprit de corps. Average salaries and no stock options.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve compensation, announce an end to layoffs and commit to employees in a meaningful way that begins to counteract 3 years of poor morale.

    This is not the same company it was even a couple of years ago. It's a sad place to work.

    I have been working at Genzyme full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The science is interesting, the diseases being researched are in need of dedicated teams to create solutions, and the people who are left (after the acquisition by Sanofi) are really super.

    Cons

    That being said, those people are leaving in droves, and the new parent company is totally focused on the bottom line, not what makes sense for patients, and certainly not what makes sense for the employees. There is no recognition by Sanofi that Genzyme employees made Genzyme what it was, and the loss of talent in the past several months is staggering!
