I worked at Genzyme

Pros

Great work/life balance; wonderful, really intelligent people to work with - a lot of learning experiences.

Cons

Difficult to move internally. I wanted to explore other opportunities and found they wanted to pull in external employees who better fit the mold.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look at your internal workforce and find ways to help them grow and develop.

    I have been working at Genzyme

    Pros

    The People
    The patients whose lifes are incredibly enhanced through Genzyme medicines
    Genzyme is one of the most Environmentally concious employers in the world

    Cons

    Uncertainty relating to takeover by Sanofi
    The risk associated with the hit and miss nature of drug research and development can have negative (and positive) impacts on earnings/bonus

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused on the human capital of Genzyme and do not let Sanofi impact operations negatively
    Provide more proactive communication to employees regarding Sanofi integration activities

    I worked at Genzyme

    Pros

    The benefits were good and the coworkers were fun. I found that the flexibility in scheduling was very helpful as the mother of 2 young children.

    Cons

    There was jno ownership of your work and little opportunity to advance or learn. Only followed strict SOPs and were encouraged not to think about the science behind the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take a better look at the wealth of people working for you and use their knowledge rather than stifiling it.
