    I worked at Sanofi Pasteur as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people I worked with were very nice and the swiftwater campus is quite beautiful.
    My boss gave me a lot of autonomy to do my work. Friendly environment

    Cons

    I was not very experienced with the French culture and it seemed like a very rigid corporate structure. I also did not receive as much guidance or mentorship from my supervisor as I would have liked to but he was quite busy so I understand.

    I worked at Sanofi Pasteur as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good cafetaria. Decent pay for an intern. A gym. Nice scenary.

    Cons

    Most the programming they do is SAP. Their software dept is very unorganized. There is no central version control system. The programming is not that challenging.

    If you are an intern, you are not likely to be hired.

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

    Pros

    Benefits and company culture are a definite plus. The culture is an interesting mix of local Pocono mountain and rural PA with urban French headquarters culture. Good opportunities for advancement, sometimes requiring relocation to other sites.

    Cons

    Salaries somewhat lower than for comparable positions in New Jersey or in suburban Philadelphia areas but cost of living is lower in this part of PA. Like at lot of companies these days, they expect employees to put a lot of hours, do whatever it takes to get the job done.

    I have been working at Sanofi Pasteur full-time

    Pros

    - tons of opportunity for development if you've got drive
    - pay is good, vacation time great compared to many, 401k match is wonderful.
    - the company is a good name for your resume.

    Cons

    - bureaucratic as they come
    - slow moving behemoth
    - sites that were acquired are somewhat neglected in regards to HR, IT and on-site benefits offered elsewhere.
    - if you want anything done, you need to find someone with power to help you out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. I don't see much room for improvement. This is just how a company of this size must be run.

    I have been working at Sanofi Pasteur full-time

    Pros

    initial salary, benefits and compensation packages were far ahead of the industry. The initial work was challenging

    Cons

    There is no longer any movement or growth in the company. It does not appear that there is a well defined career plan or succession planning for anyone. In addition the lack of feedback makes it very hard to improve skill sets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start doing 360 feedback reviews, also survey current talent, there is a wealth of resources in the current staff but they are just not utilized.
