    I worked at Sanofi-Aventis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people and driven by the right motivations. Extremely bright hires and many people with significant tenure within the company. Opportunity to move up withn the organization is available for those who want it

    Cons

    Communication lacking from upper management around strategic direction of the company. Culture is extremely finance focused with constant cost-cutting initiatives being implemented. Department/company reorganization has become a way of life.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more information to employees about longer term strategic vision for the organization and realize that the constant disruption caused by either current reorganizations or impending ones does not help morale or culture.
