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 Management

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.

    Pros

    Company vision and mission; life-saving products; good compensation and benefits package

    Cons

    Some business units suffer from poor management/leadership; poor communication; lack of employee development/growth options; constant changes due to acquisition by/integration with Sanofi

    Advice to Management

    Communicate changes to your employees; take career development seriously and reward those that work hard and help you to achieve your business goals.
