Pros

Great benefits, a few good products to sell, to get pharmaceutical experience, to see how Big Pharma works, to get a paycheck (albeit one on the low end of the pharma company pay spectrum)

Cons

Micromanagement of employees, constant poor corporate decision making resulting in an increasingly unstable company, no clear vision or path for employees (business plan/model changes virtually every quarter), corrupt management, bonus payout reports ridiculously late and often contain conspicuously "funny" math, little opportunity for advancement or growth compared to other companies, abusive managers, poor product pipeline, loss of credibility in the medical community, unethical practices, disregard for employee morale

Advice to Management

Stop the bleeding, please.

    Pros

    The benefits package is excellent. Best vacation policy of any pharma in the US. Strong pipeline.

    Cons

    There is a spoken emphasis on work/life balance, but it doesn't translate into workload. As with any pharma company, the sales reps can be treated like children/micromanaged.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees. Communicate the negative info about products as thoroughly as you communicate the positive. Arm us with all of the information and trust us to use it wisely and fairly.

    I have been working at Sanofi-Aventis as a contractor

    Pros

    Great company, very motivated in helping the patients they serve, not just profits.

    Cons

    More successful if I could communicate directly with the company and not through the 3rd party company they contract to handle this particular program.
