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

    Pros

    Good people, flexible hours, decent benefits

    Cons

    Human resources department lacking professional leadership. Division direction all over the place. No real room to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest and back up your employees. Talk to the people in the trenches and understand how things really work. Listen to their ideas. Better planning with more depts. involved. Free pizza once a month is just nowhere near what people are looking for. REALLY!

    Biosurgery in Decline thanks to Sanofi and Sr Management's lack of understanding and failure to want to understand.

    I have been working at Genzyme full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Some of the most dedicated and passionate Sales representatives in the marketspace. They are keeping the Synvisc brand alive in light of poor management at the Sr Level. Turn over would be much higher if not for a truly dedicated sales force. They focus on the patient and maintain a professionalism that represents the product and company well.

    Cons

    The Sr Management and Sanofi have destroyed the Biosurgery family. Hyalgan was once a Sanofi product. It never was a market leader or a fast growing product. It was a me to product and was a very small peice of the Sanofi revenue pie. Synvisc on the other hand was a leading product for Genzyme and held the number 1 Marketshare position for 12+ years. Sanofi has taken ownership of Synvisc and has forced the Sales model and support into the Hyalgan mold. Like anyone would predict, Synvisc is now in decline, the passionate sales force is not energy of the product anymore and is not respected. Sr Management does not trust or support the Sales Force as it once did. For the countless Genzyme Biosurgery legacy employees, I feel bad. Most importantly, I feel bad for the thousands of patients that will not get the best treatment option due to a poorly supported sales force to get the word out to providers. I predict continued decline of Synvisc Market Share and employee turn over. Very Sad...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Synvisc grew at double digits for years, no it can't even maintain growth over previous year.. Why? The entire structure of the sales force, operations, tools, territories, data management, Sr Leadership, patient and reimbursement services and information technology has been changed by Sanofi. I think all fingers point to Sanofi as ruining a great thing. There was a reason Hyalgan had flat growth and wa sold financially for years. Sanofi DID NOT KNOW how to sell it and manage its sales from a support level. Unfortunatly I predict continued decline with the true market leader in the Visco space as long as the current Sr. Leadership is present and fails to listen to the needs of the Pysicians and the front line representatives.
