    Pros

    The growth potential with this company is endless, they have programs in place that aid in the process (yearly review and development plans) and they actually use them in the light that they are intended.The pay is great, the processes are concrete, and adherence to policy is built into the culture.

    Cons

    Unfortunately this company is large enough to harbor poor corporate culture lacking accountability. Sadly, blaming others is the culture here.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Genzyme Pharmaceuticals (Cambridge, MA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    HR put my travel, car service and hotel itinerary together so that part was a breeze! I had 6 half-hour interviews where each of the interviewers came to the conference room I sat in. All in all, it was a good day if not a bit hurried - especially during lunch, it's difficult to interview and eat a ham sandwich at the same time. That was a bit too rushed and awkward.

    Interview Questions

    • Most people I talked to asked how I handled conflicts within a group or on a team, especially where two or more people had very different points of view and were equally passionate about their respective viewpoints.   2 Answers
