I worked at Genzyme full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Truly a great company that is committed to helping patients; giving them hope, when there was little hope before.

Cons

The acquisition by Sanofi has started to change the culture to one more akin to big Pharma.

    Former Employee - Consultant in Boston, MA

    I worked at Genzyme as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Boston location. Plenty of opportunity to improve the operation.

    Cons

    Senior management not clearly focused on improving operations. Undisciplined engineering practices at some locations. Unsustainable product pricing model for long-term success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Investing in engineering development--specifically turnover from research to -manufacturing--could yield order-of-magnitude improvements in fixed asset throughput.
