    Pros

    Great compensation and benefits, great products, interesting work in a variety of therapeutic areas, great internal training programs and education, health club, health center, great cafeteria and coffee/sorbet shop!

    Cons

    Some silo issues, pretty formal atmosphere despite the business casual dress, lack of communication within department, lack of willingness to share best practices, maybe too competitive

    Advice to Management

    Encourage internal communication among colleagues, foster less of a competitive environment.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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

  8. Boring internship, not much work to do

    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 Management

    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?

    Pros

    Third Largest Big Pharma in the world driving revenue in 5 Different Categories (Diabetes, CV, Oncology, Vaccines, and OTC) with healthy Product Pipeline. French culture radiate from above which allows to balance your work and life. Minimum 3 weeks vacation plus Winter Close Down and Holidays gives you at least a month worth of freedom. Favorable Stock Performance from Wall Street makes it a little breather compared to other big pharmas with Share Holders breathing on your neck.

    Cons

    Poor management quality from top VP levels to DMs. From low balling salaries compared to other big pharma companies, their inability to hire intelligent and valuable and experienced employees (Talent Acquisition) as well as keeping the well performing employees (Talent Retention) are way below par.

    Advice to Management

    The restructuring of Management Structure is in a dire need. Management was given too much power that it seems no opportunities for staff to influence in evaluating the management skills based on feedback from employees, peers, and third party analysis. The salary pay scale should be revisited compared to the industry standard (locally rather than nationally) in order to accommodate talent acquisition and retention. The management's ability to motivate and encourage their employees to be happier and better performers also need to be improved. Too much change and shuffling within organization can also effect anyone's career path or momentum.
