Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Project Manager

I have been working at GlaxoSmithKline full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Very good Values and Culture

Cons

Slow Decision Making and lack of matured planning

Former Employee - Senior Internal Audit and Risk Assurance Lead

I worked at Sanofi full-time

Pros

SANOFI Internal audit department is a great opportunity to learn about the pharma world. Not only the internal audit raises key risks for the company but also provides strategic recommendation... leading for changes. The management treat fairly the employees and reward the talent accordingly. Would highly recommend if you are searching for a career accelerator. Great opportunities outside of the audit opened up to the former auditors as we have being seen as a talent pool.

Cons

Not recommended for people seeking to remain in their comfort zone. As we are tackling topics outside of the internal control framework, most of the audits require strategic thinking, good... understanding of the key pharma risks and also create a work program from scratch
