    Pros

    the best reason to work for sanofi is the vacation time (4 weeks for a new employee), and the benefits package

    Cons

    no confidence in the sales reports/numbers means that you really have no idea if the bonus you are being paid is commensurate with what you really sold

    Advice to Management

    be more transparent with field force in terms of future plans; don't hire contract sales force and then lay off sanofi employees


  2. If you are fortunate & report to a manager who has good people skills, then you will enjoy working at Sanofi-Aventis.

    Pros

    Fair salaries, good health benefit coverage-many plans to choose from, excellent work-life benefits, vacation policy, and 401 k plan, Overall, a well managed company.

    Cons

    If you worked for a small company before, you may be overwhelmed. It takes more time to get things approved and put into action in a larger company like Sanofi-Aventis

    Advice to Management

    Typically, sales managers are promoted from the field sales force. The main requirement is usually "high sales achievements" , However, many high sales achievers do not know the first thing about managing a dynamic group of sales reps. Even after completing "manager training" courses, it still takes some time to develop good "employee management" skills. (Of course there are some that just don't seem to be able to effectively manage others even with extensive training.) During the interim period, a company could lose most of it's top sales reps reporting to the new sales manager. This translates to sales losses on two fronts. The new sales manager has lost top sales reps and the new manager is no longer directly contributing to sales because they have been promoted.
