    I have been working at Sanofi-Aventis (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Preclinical and clinical science work close together

    Cons

    Highly matrixed environment, poor salaries and when they purchased us (genzyme) the transition was poor

    Advice to Management

    Provide interaction opportunities between middle level and upper level management. Do not expect that a skeleton crew, from repeated layoffsm is going to do the work of 3-4 FTE per person
