    Genzyme WAS the best. Sanofi destroyed it and continues to expect more and pay less.

    I have been working at Genzyme full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Synvisc is a well respected product by Dr.'s everywhere. It's top of it's class. Great vacation and 401k. Pretty good comp. plan.

    Cons

    Big Brother aka Sanofi is destroying everything Genzyme built. They manipulate the numbers to pay out less. They take away all the tools for success and expect you to do more and have unrealistic goals. They've increased the price while the competitors are gaining huge ground and Dr.'s are switching because of it. More and more requested of sales: useless reports and trackers, more administrative requirements, less autonomy as they track with Blackberry and Ipad , also they don't seem to understand that this is buy and bill not pharma which makes things difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop taking away everything Genzyme had. There's a reason you bought them. Not everything fits into the Sanofi jello mold. Sales will continue to decrease with the mistakes they're making unless they smarten up. Listen to the sales force and first level managers.
