I have been working at Sanofi Genzyme full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

-the management in my group is very encouraging and let us take offsite seminars, attend conferences and encourage growth and development

Cons

-few jobs openings and chances to move up or to other departments
-Upper management have been around for so long that they do not encourage or accept change easily
- a lot of getting ahead is from being liked and who you know
-salaries are low for experience and education
-departments do not often work well together, there is a lot of argument among managers of different departments

Advice to Management

-care more about your employees

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

    Pros

    Competitive salaries, excellent benefits package, and some very nice coworkers. Job satisfaction will depend on the group and manager that you work for, some departments are great, and others need help.

    Cons

    Loss of Genzyme culture since Sanofi took over, work-life balance can be difficult at times, lack of consistent communication and policies/procedures across sites.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to squash the old Genzyme culture that made it a great place to work, value and respect the individual contributors that make things happen, stop the confusion related to reorganizing groups and sites every few months, realize that long-term employees still have plenty to add and should not be driven out and replaced with new blood, and analyze and select the best software systems before wasting time and money on implementation projects. Genzyme can be a great place to work...make the necessary changes, but stop trying to change everything about it.
