Restructuring still in progress

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Framingham, MA

I have been working at Genzyme as a contractor for less than a year

ProsGood 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.

ConsConstant 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 Senior ManagementMake 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
