    I worked at Sanofi-Aventis full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - decent compensation compared to other sales positions inside and outside the industry
    - good benefits, but not as good as they once were

    Cons

    - high stress due to ongoing threat of layoffs
    - unclear direction for individual jobs and the company as a whole
    - rather than building loyalty by treating people well, management has switched to bullying employees by threatening even more rounds of layoffs

    Advice to Management

    Do you want to maximize sales, or optimize patient outcomes? It can't be both, so quit pretending it always can be. And while employees are happy to have their jobs, and want to keep them, they also want to be valued as individual contributors and as people.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Sanofi-Aventis full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very good working conditions, including income. Excellent cooperation among the team I worked for. Multinational working organization, which improves outcome results.

    Cons

    Maybe a too big company, with all the problems it brings. Excess of formality with the hierarchy.
    Hierarchic structure not always based on competence.

    Advice to Management

    I think Sanofi should try to be less formal bringing the management closer to the common employees.
