    I worked at Sanofi Pasteur full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Competitive pay, great benefits, opportunity for flex hrs and/or telecommuting depending on department and supervisor.

    Cons

    General lack of respect for subordinates, little to no interest in developing talent. Abuse of power by many mangers with no real support from HR. Moral is very low and many are seeking to leave just as I did.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a genuine interest in employees, compensate them fairly, and operate according to the core values of the business.

    I have been working at Sanofi Pasteur full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    good pay and benefits and vacation time. Leader decides everything. Good if you fit the profile and don't make waves. Business contributes to human health

    Cons

    Not very open to new ideas, or ideas generated from the bottom up. Needs improvement in diversity and inclusion rather than autocratic decision-making and arbitrary rewards. Good old boy network is dominant

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more opportunity for diversity of people and ideas. The person at the top doesn't have to always be right or always have the best idea. Listen to and respect employees.

    Pros

    The company has great benefits. The site interactions are excellent. The company has good flexibility. Descent salaries. Overall the site is a good place to work

    The upper management outside the site lacks of comprehension and understanding of the site needs. The site has no direct support from HR, IS and other departments which makes it difficult some time to achieve goals.

    I have been working at Sanofi Pasteur full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The compensation is fair and benefits are good, although they are always cutting back
    There are opportunities to learn a little from other departments

    Cons

    There is no opportunity for development and upper management does nothing to retain good talent.
    The turnover rate is really high and nothing is being done about it.
    Upper management is out of touch and does not value their employees.
    Work/ life balance is terrible and tons of overtime is expected in order to proceed every week.
    Bonuses and raises are dwindling

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees and they will want to
