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

Pros

The company is completely committed to treating unmet medical needs by doing the best science possible. Now that it represents a leading part of the North American research hub of Sanofi Corporation, it has the maturity and structure of a Pharma company but still retains its small company feel.

Cons

Integration into the larger Sanofi network has been confusing and bumpy at times. There is a little lower compensation than before, but more vacation time. For a company Genzyme's size, the Clinical production facilities are a little skimpy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to maintain Genzyme's independence while we integrate. Now that our manufacturing is on its feet, please start putting more resources into early stage development programs.
