    I worked at Servier full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Really great bunch of colleagues, nice offices and good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Little room for professional development or progression and my salary did not move much in the last few years. Unfortunate, as otherwise a nice place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your staff better and value them. Consider introducing more varied and accessible flexible working practices.

    I have been working at Servier full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, good products, good sales team.

    Cons

    Budget is too high and almost impossible to reach, as well as variable compensation. A lot of pressure top-down and you can see that people are generally unhappy and not motivated, with the company culture. Sales people have to memorize the sales speech, and use it with customers (MD's). No career evolution at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Memorized sales speech is outdated and doesn't work anymore. The sales team is one of the company's engines and should be taken care of.

    Pros

    Respectful professional environment. Top-notch training and development activities.

    Open career development for talents out of Europe (and France!).

    I worked at Servier full-time

    Pros

    Good experience to help set up new Servier plant in Russia. Good compensation and benefits. Good culture. First CEO hired some professional people from pharma industry people could learn from, spirits were high.

    Cons

    After management change best people left. New CEO hired new managers without pharma knowledge and not honest. Did not see real situation, mistakes blamed by new managment on people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find managers who at least understand word GMP:).
