I worked at Sanofi U.S. full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

At its high water mark, Sanofi had unique, world-class products across multiple therapeutic categories. At one time, the company's motto was, Because Health Matters, and it did. These aspects provided the extra incentive beyond the pharma industry average salary, bonus, benefits they paid.

Cons

If new, innovative products are the lifeblood of the pharma industry, then Sanofi is in a truly anemic state. Major, late pipeline embarrassments abound. Most recently, the FDA denial of Lemtrada (the cornerstone of the Genzyme acquisiton), delays with lixisenatide, and of course the monumental development failure of rimonabant. Add to this scenario the swing and miss on devices such as iBGStar and Auvi-Q; a clear picture of a leadership miscarriage emerges. A culture of "Change Agents" has been deployed to distract attention from the ongoing hemorrhaging, anemia, and soon to be patent cliffs on cash cow donor Lantus. The "MS Franchise" is down to Augagio. Another round of early 2014 staff reductions will staunch the rate of bleeding, before more aggressive amputations are ordered. Sanofi will likely emerge a diminished shadow of its former self. Best advice for job seekers: Keep ones eyes wide open, hearing tuned in to outside channels, and resume at the ready.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Step out from the Maginot Line fortifications and obstacles you've set in your path. Listen to the voice of the customer(s), double/triple your business development staff, pare down drug development until you truly have a plan worth developing. Hire new regulatory staff since the current group is tone deaf to FDA frequencies.

    Pros

    Great work life balance program and the benefits are very fair

    Cons

    Not much opportunity for career growth. Upper management stay in place and doesn't allow middle management to grow. It impacts innovation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at changing up management and break the pattern of promoting the mediocre workers.
