    Pros

    Company truly values their consumers. Pay is above average for an intern with little to no experience. Lunch is often catered and there are great opportunities to network in the field.

    Cons

    Upon entry, there is not much training involved and often times, you must ask for more work. The work can be repetitive

    Advice to Management

    Create an intern training program to initiate a good relationship and foundation for future full-time employees

    Pros

    Everyone is friendly and helpful with good advancement and/or lateral career opportunities and good mentors. Good number of company vacation days and some onsite perks. I like what I do and am constantly challenged in a good way - my passion for the work I do is keeping me here.

    Cons

    Not as many perks as biotechs obviously and may be less than some other pharma companies. Decent amount of in-office politics and contractors are not treated like employees, which often alienates and makes contractors feel under-valued. After two years as a contractor, still no offer to be FTE but only an offer to continue as a contractor.

    Advice to Management

    Value employees more and provide competitive offer and conversion to FTE if contractors are truly valued - otherwise they will bolt for a better offer.

    Pros

    Sanofi is a solid, global company with reasonably good salaries and extensive benefits. Individual development opportunities are available to be taken advantage of to enhance knowledge and skills.

    Cons

    Change here never seems to end. With turnover at the top, Sanofi is continuing to reinvent itself especially on the R&D side. Someone came in at a high level position a few years back with the idea of making sweeping positive changes in R&D, but left before completing the changes contemplated or finding out if any of the changes made would be beneficial.

    Advice to Management

    At some point, once changes are made, there needs to be a period of stability to be able to judge what changes work and what changes don't work. Also, employees would appreciate having a solid platform on which to place their feet.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Great Culture, Flex time work, Cordial atmosphere, friendly team members, Good Manager, Good Senior Management.

    Cons

    Very volatile due to mergers, too much French domination, even emails are in French, career growth will be less.

    Advice to Management

    French owners, so it will be French culture only. Why should they hide it?

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and 401K match. Excellent time off. People are pretty nice for the most part.

    Cons

    Pay, poor leadership, revolving door at the corporate level. They do not give the best support to field sales force

    Advice to Management

    Please start compensating your employees competitively as compared to industry standards.

  8. A good place for professional growth and development.

    Pros

    The company really believes in maintenance of work life balance, company culture is good, training is a priority, a wealth of career development opportunities are available.

    Cons

    Employee compensation package is not as generous as some other companies. Performance management is not fair to all employees.

    Advice to Management

    Need to ask employees for feedback on how to improve some of the processes that are not working anymore.

    Pros

    Great people. Respectful management. Good work life balance. Many challenging opportunities. Knowing that you are in an industry that is about making lives better.

    Cons

    Extremely large and complex organization.

    Advice to Management

    There is an effort to standardize the IT organization but it is still frustrating and overwhelming to navigate the organization and get work accomplished.

    Pros

    my last day. The best part to me was being closed for about 2 weeks during the holiday season. Which I believe is standard across the Pharma board.

    Cons

    The systems used are a never ending rabbit hole. You can never get to the "right" person who can actually help you. The help desk is the HELPLESS desk. It's just a whole bunch of bs with very little reward. If working for a Pharma company is your goal, look elsewhere. After I left, I heard they fired my entire department. Glad I got away in the nick of time.

    Advice to Management

    Fire ALL management and start over from scratch.

    Pros

    Great people and I've had mostly positive experiences with management. No expense spared at providing tasty and healthy food! Nice company events. Excellent gym and physical therapy. Can have clothes cleaned, car detailed, and pickup prescriptions all while you work!

    Cons

    During obviously dangerous weather they refuse to close the site, forcing people to take a day or come in. Then, after coming in, they may close the site after a few hours, leaving you to navigate in dangerous weather back home. Well, no place is perfect!
