    Pros

    If you can survive the next 5 years under the consent decree environment it will be very good experience. It will teach you how to build a quality system using the ICH guidelines, and populating it with standards per international GMP and regulatory requirements. They are doing the same with engineering documentation systems and project management systems. Production Batch Records are also being rewritten.

    Cons

    Senior management is inept - perhaps half the VPs are gone but there is more pruning to be done. Sanofi has purchased the company and is trying to sort this out but they seem bewildered by the vast array of problems. Genzyme manufacturing plants were under-managed and under-funded for years and this cannot be turned around overnight. People at all levels are working beneath their position as a way of compensating for a lack of proper management systems.

    Advice to Management

    Be patient - do not expect Genzyme to get up to general standards of performance any sooner than 3-5 years.
