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

    Pros

    Good Benefits good people on the front lines.

    Cons

    Compensation really bad for the industry standard. Poor management, poor communication, poor planning equals frustration for the front lines of production. Zero support in the off night hours with the exception for QA management always there to assist if called. Site actually closing soon. Tons of forced overtime usually caused by poor planning but doesn't effect the office they never work OT on weekends and get to leave at 4:30 everyday so they don't care.

    Advice to Management

    Get involved the office is not the only place that work gets done.
