    I have been working at Sanofi U.S. full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The benefits package is better than at most other pharma companies, and there's a lot of flexibility (with management approval, of course).

    Cons

    Despite years of trying to break down silos, there's still a lack of true collaboration across departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gain alignment on strategy and shared goals at the top of the house.

    Pros

    Work-life balance seems fair in some departments, great healthcare plan

    Pay is in the low side of the Pharma industry, Do not see major potential to offset near future patent expiry blockbuster products, HR is unhelpful and career progression is left on your own

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share vision and long term plan with employees so that they know company prospects
    Change company culture to motivate cross-functional initiatives
    Make company play a larger role in career development

    I worked at Sanofi U.S. full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some very good people at the company. You will find that they offer a very attractive salary and they have the standard benefits package the is offered in the pharma business.

    Cons

    A little on the bureaucratic side not much trust of upper management who say one thing and do another. Be prepared to understand that you are a commodity and will be used as such. Moving to the use of contractors who replace FTE's. Always looking over your shoulder to see when the next down sizing is coming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little more respect, honesty and transparency would go a long way in getting the a better working organization

    I have been working at Sanofi U.S. full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pays well if you fight for salary and increases at every chance. Big company and lots of places to go if you work hard.

    Cons

    Don't count on internal promotions to managers. Company has a long history of not developing their people. Everyone gets interim jobs, which I believe is tied to incompetent RSDs unable to make hiring decisions or prep their people sothat when open spots happen their folks are ready. Other companies will think something is wrong with you for not getting a manager spot sooner, but sanofi people including managers know exactly what I mean.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the people on the bus are the wrong people and those who read this are probably part of the problem. Lots of people getting used to saying "we can't" and " we are our own worst enemy"...so why aren't the leaders fixing it?
