I have been working at Sanofi-Aventis

Pros

The benefits package is excellent. Best vacation policy of any pharma in the US. Strong pipeline.

Cons

There is a spoken emphasis on work/life balance, but it doesn't translate into workload. As with any pharma company, the sales reps can be treated like children/micromanaged.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust your employees. Communicate the negative info about products as thoroughly as you communicate the positive. Arm us with all of the information and trust us to use it wisely and fairly.

    I worked at Sanofi-Aventis full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I really loved my brands marketing team. We were a tight little group. Technology was kept up to date and I wasn't denied any further education or seminars if i wished to participate. Benefits are good and salary was above average as well as product discounts. The Brisbane facility I worked in was very convenient and had plenty of resources on site.

    Cons

    I worked in Comsumer Health (Vitamins) and I found upper management to be pompus and pretend to care about the lower levels. It was clear which brands were the favourite and others had budgets stripped to accomadate multiple revamps of the primary brands underperforming. I felt that they pretended to listen and happy to dismiss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take on board what people have to say in regards to feedback, not just your favourite brand managers!
