    I worked at Sanofi US (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Multinational big company, multiple locations, good technology, employee socializing events,

    Cons

    Most often don't hire full time or sponsor visa, you do not get to implement your own ideas most of the times because the management focuses on targets but again depends which facility you work in.

    Not a pleasant work environment - facilities and management No innovation and permeated with CYA attitude Eliminated defined pension plan and made no signficant change to 401k to compensate Company logo is lame Human Resources is neither human nor resourceful Most management are poorly trained in leadership and basic management skills Company will throw you under bus at every turn if it suits them

    Advice to Management

    Need to significantly reorganize and get rid of old school/sanofi way of doing things Need to encourage and reward creative solutions, innovation and initiative Need to receive better training on leadership, interpersonal skills, project management

    Pros

    Benefits, Great products, Strong R&D

    Cons

    The idiots running the US business are amazing. We succeed in spite of them, and try to avoid their direction in every action we take

    Advice to Management

    Quit filling our meetings with VP's presenting to us: it provides NO VALUE. And as God as my witness, please stop asking us to applaud everything you do on stage. Someone's going to go postal.
