I have been working at Sanofi-Aventis

Pros

I was only there for the summer, but it was a great work environment. I was treated very well. The project was simple, but I was given a lot of respect with my ideas.

Cons

The one main thing that was not great was that this particular project did not allow for any room for advancement and was a strictly temporary position.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Even though my time there was brief, my supervisors were both kind and supportive, and the work that needed to get done was also always completed successfully.

    Pros

    good benefits and vacation time off, generous with 401k and medical benefits, company care and other benefits in line with pharma industry

    Cons

    management is not aware of the market place and products that sanofi-aventis is putting out in the market, very little support from upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    senior management is clueless to what is going on in the market both nationally and at the street level, the ship is sinking and management isn't even concerned

    I worked at Sanofi-Aventis

    Pros

    Salary/benefits are competitive in the industry. Company provides a good tuition reimbursment program and time off benefits and flexible work schedule was a nice plus.

    Cons

    Sanofi used to be a nice place to work. The company was never the highest paying pharma co., but focused on providing a strong benefits package and backed it up with a culture that was employee centric-people were treated like individuals, not interchangable parts. That has changed since 2009 and "Transformation" began. Senior leadership has no idea what direction they are going in. If they do, they are incapable or unwilling to provide that message to its employees. The company has dismantled many of the pros that encouraged people to stay despite the lower salaries. Company loyalty towards employees is not longer considered an important aspect of the culture, yet the company still wants unquestioned loyalty from its employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A fully vetted long term plan should be developed and communicated to employees. It appears that decisions are made to save money but not for the long term development of competitive advantage within the industry.
