I have been working at Genzyme as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

Good people trying their best to overcome the issues of consent decree and the Sanofi buyout. Many employees have helped to grow Genzyme from a startup to a major company. Their history and lessons are valuable.

Cons

Constant changes in the way business, training and work is being done. Part of this is due to Sanofi's increasing influence. Workers are often frustrated and confused with the changes and what is now expected of them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure your entire way of doing business and work is up to date and modern to keep pace with the current biotech marketplace. Spent a bit less money on new floral plantings every few weeks and more on perks for your hardworking employees.

    I worked at Genzyme full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Decent benefit. Comparable to other biotech companies in greater Boston area.

    Cons

    The company is deteriorating. I was surprised at its high turn over of employees through two years working there. A lot people I worked with have left since, especially after the company was bought out and it went 24/7. The management has no consideration of employees in general.

    One of the most chaotic scenes in the drug industry. I have 18 years experience and this is scary.

    Pros

    Solid pipeline of drugs. Drugs for rare diseases. They do give many drugs away to those who cannot afford the meds.

    Cons

    GMP's are subjective. Training is awful and management is detaches from reality. I don't know how they make money. Very clicky. No communication. It is run like a 3rd world factory. Dirty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave...just walk away.
