    Pros

    Everyone's opinion counted. Lots of opportunity to grow, learn, develop. Used to be a place where you could make an impact, if you wanted to work hard and be engaged. Since the buyout, some of these attitudes have been lost, but can be found in certain pockets. Great people to work with (although many have left).

    Cons

    Everyone's opinion counted. With Sanofi coming in, things have changed significantly, and now it's become much more "big pharma" Formerly populated by a lot of "A" players, now more B's and C's. Lots more paper pushing, and silo-ing than there was in the old days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember where you came from.

    Current Employee - Associate Director  in  Worcester, MA

    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.
