    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    Good team to work with, smart people with passion for helping. US team well versed in US policy and compliance.

    Cons

    Senior management excludes US staff from strategy. Global team (from France) works out of Cambridge, MA and specifically excludes the North America team in Bridgewater, NJ. Ex-US executives think that they don't need to follow US compliance rules.

    Advice to Management

    Consider including US experts in decisions regarding drugs, drug development, and pricing. Although just one country, the success of the market should merit at least a conversation. Perhaps including people familiar with US trends would have saved you from the past few years of blunders.
