    I have been working at Sanofi-Aventis

    Pros

    There was very clear performance feedback regularly and you always knew where you stood.
    The company really tried to get each group to know each other and it was effective, many of my former co-workers and I are still in touch.
    The benefits package was generous, good health insurance, 401K match and vacation time.

    Cons

    There was no communication of company or group changes, I would hear of changes from outside my department before my management ever told me.
    There was not much work-life balance, no work at home even on snow days.
    There was a big disparity in work distribution. Those who could perform were given the work that the under-performers weren't doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The corporate policies are good but as the yearly survey showed people were not happy with their management. Sanofi's managers were below the standard and had no incentive for managing their employees well. This should be weighted more in the yearly reviews.
