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

    Pros

    Some interesting products in the pipeline and joint ventures - Genzyme side. Benefits are good and 401k has a decent match.

    Cons

    No contingency plans for when a blockbuster is not in the reps bag. Senior management turns over quickly and are usually running away from bad performance at their last gig... Best yet they bring all of their friends?! The solution to everything is make more calls and track metrics....that is the ONLY strategy used. Strategies of senior sales management team have not evolved with the market or industry trends.
    The organization is starting their tradition of extreme pre-holiday stress and desperate metric management in preparation for holiday layoffs. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Look in the mirror.... You may be the problem.

    Develop a culture that encourages A Tonna me instead of being micromanagers. I have some stability in territories and don't realign every 9 to 18 months.
