    I worked at Genzyme full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great company to work for . Good pay and good benefits.

    Cons

    Poor management. Need knowledgeable management. Managers supervisor don't get along. Management never takes responsibility for their action and always throw their subordinate under the bus

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management need to investigate why all the good workers leave the company. They need to investigate why there is such a high turn around within a month.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Great place, flexible, challenging, active, until the manufacturing issues and the buyout.

    I worked at Genzyme full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.
