I worked at Sanofi-Aventis full-time

Pros

Salary competitive, ample parking, some excellent colleagues, resources available when priority, international opportunities, high turnover can create opportunities

Cons

Poor leadership, no long-term vision or commitment, poor culture - Franco-centric, poor communication, run by bean counters and lawyers, budget re-aligned every 3 mos, innovation squelched and not recognized, CYA culture dominates

Advice to Management

Create internal start-ups with 5 yr budgets with 50% internal and external management mix and do not micro-manage. Reorganize into separately run units - decentralized.

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

    Pros

    great benefits and people. Large company so you will have the opportunity to learn a lot and build relationship. You also have the opportunity to further your education which is a plus in this day and age.

    Cons

    the pharmaceutical industry is changing and it is harder to get products approved and patents expire. When business is not going well there are constant cut backs and layoff, which contribute to a poor atmosphere at times.
