Pros

good benefits and vacation time off, generous with 401k and medical benefits, company care and other benefits in line with pharma industry

Cons

management is not aware of the market place and products that sanofi-aventis is putting out in the market, very little support from upper management.

Advice to Management

senior management is clueless to what is going on in the market both nationally and at the street level, the ship is sinking and management isn't even concerned

  1. "Used to be a nice place to work, not anymore"

    Pros

    Salary/benefits are competitive in the industry. Company provides a good tuition reimbursment program and time off benefits and flexible work schedule was a nice plus.

    Cons

    Sanofi used to be a nice place to work. The company was never the highest paying pharma co., but focused on providing a strong benefits package and backed it up with a culture that was employee centric-people were treated like individuals, not interchangable parts. That has changed since 2009 and "Transformation" began. Senior leadership has no idea what direction they are going in. If they do, they are incapable or unwilling to provide that message to its employees. The company has dismantled many of the pros that encouraged people to stay despite the lower salaries. Company loyalty towards employees is not longer considered an important aspect of the culture, yet the company still wants unquestioned loyalty from its employees.

    Advice to Management

    A fully vetted long term plan should be developed and communicated to employees. It appears that decisions are made to save money but not for the long term development of competitive advantage within the industry.


  2. "Sanofi was a good learning experience overall, but the company morale has been lacking since 2006."

    Pros

    Sanofi had incredible benefits and good training.

    Cons

    The company morale has been terrible since 2006. Many reps are underutilized and feel non- productive since there are still so many reps in each area.

    Advice to Management

    It is great they are doing voluntary severances now, as there are many disgruntled workers and they looking for a way out. Reps should feel more accountability in their territories--there are still way too many reps in each territory, even the diabetes division. Less reps would mean more productivity and more accountability.
