    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Sanofi Genzyme as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Boston location. Plenty of opportunity to improve the operation.

    Cons

    Senior management not clearly focused on improving operations. Undisciplined engineering practices at some locations. Unsustainable product pricing model for long-term success.

    Advice to Management

    Investing in engineering development--specifically turnover from research to -manufacturing--could yield order-of-magnitude improvements in fixed asset throughput.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Sanofi Genzyme full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great benefits/401K/PTO
    - Robust pipeline
    - Seeing our therapies are changing lives
    - Associates are very dedicated to the patients/cause

    Cons

    - Overly bureaucratic
    - Too many unproductive meetings
    - Few opportunities for advancement - favoritism by Management is rampant
    - Distinct "cliques"
    - Terrible raises
    - Low morale - no one ever seems happy
    - HR dept is ineffective at best

    Advice to Management

    Look at the wealth of fresh talent to add to the management team. Same legacy Genzymers keep being promoted while their favorites ride their coat tails. Improve HR dept so that employees feel that if they reach out for help, it will be confidentially addressed.
