    I worked at Sanofi-Aventis full-time

    Pros

    learned alot, exams were challenging; culture was disorganized whip lash. direction changed week to week.

    Cons

    micromanagement; difficult and confusing; did not have clarity.

    Advice to Management

    Lead and grow; the rearranging of the deck chairs is not going to get the business. treat people with respect.

    I worked at Sanofi-Aventis full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    the international team worked well together respecting strengths and differences

    Cons

    Incredible waste of resources for no gain to the stakeholders

    Advice to Management

    The stakeholders are no longer on the radar of management, short term gains are the only paramount concern. "What do I need to do to get my bonus"

    I have been working at Sanofi-Aventis full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I work with an innovative and cutting edge team. Management is willing to work with me to shape my career plan, even though it will lead me away from the team. While I am constantly being challenged to develop my skills, there is a solid support system in place to insure that I do not fail. Your growth and success will depend upon your willingness to shape your own career.

    The company has become very acceptable to a flexible work environment. I am able to work from home several days per week and I have other colleagues that work from 7am - 3pm so that their commute is more manageable.

    Cons

    I have a feeling that I'm being under paid and merit increases are hard fought. Still, the entire benefits package make the pay scale bearable.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency on job levels and pay scale would be great. I'd love to know what exactly I need to do to get to the next level.

    Pros

    401k car and health

    Cons

    Gossipy big pharma at its worst. Two faced trolls who spend more time plotting on how they can look like they had something to do with it vs, getting their own customers to write drug. A bunch of two faced gossipers who are cut throat. I'm the type of rep who had the number one sales off and on paper and would be described as a loan wolf

    Advice to Management

    Philly management needs to grow up, not show favoritism with sub par performers just because they trained together. Hire reps that are older into management not young cocky individuals. The politics gossip and ack of performance by 90% of the reps within this organization should be obvious.,.. Instead of doing bunking grown adults at meetings get rid of the bottom half .... You don't need ten reps in a small territory irritating docs... Only 1 good impactful rep..,, big pharma at its worst.... Had to be out the specialty reps were stealing my commission and not doing any work..., good luck to all of the gossipers launching iglarixi.... No doubt they will be bottom of barrel

    Pros

    Good benefits, 401k match, innovative medicines, and good potential for growth if properly steered. Major player in the industry. Multinational company.

    Cons

    Relentless politics. Obfuscation of company progress by self-serving managers who fear job loss, and therefore make short-sighted decisions to ensure self preservation at the expense of workers.

    Advice to Management

    Break the bubble. Don't rely on immediate direct reports for filtered information. Instead, brave the process of actually talking to those people who do the work, to understand what's really going on - if interested.

    Pros

    great benefit: many vacation days and excellent 401K match

    Cons

    Too many layers of management, making it difficult for crisp decision making

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the result rather than the process
