    Pros

    Sanofi Vacation package is exceeds industry standard
    401K exceeds the industry standard
    Health coverage meets the industry standard
    Company vehicle exceeds the industry standard

    Cons

    Pay for Sanofi is below the industry standard
    Environment was highly negative for me
    Business acumen was low
         We will see how their pricing strategy works with their new Basal insulin, I believe that 2nd and 3rd quarter earnings will be negative because of discounting.
          Their cardiometabolic drug will suffer because of their pricing strategy with Lovenox and now Lantus.
           Inhaled insulin was a bust.

    Pros

    The facility was very nice.

    Cons

    Management was very out of touch with the competency of the contract workers with respect to daily performance and productivity of the team members. They did not display any desire to gather input from the supervisors of the department when determining who was to get laid off and who was to be retained. This resulted in the loss of a number of outstanding performers while a few of the biggest slackers in the group were kept.

    Advice to Management

    Rely on feedback from the supervisory staff when it comes to making staffing decisions.

    Pros

    Great benefits, company car, good commissions. Everyone I worked with in the local territory was great and helped one another. Made many good friends for life.

    Cons

    After the regulations were put in place the company and managers began to micro manage everything. Use to be here is your quota and your territory. Go do your job. Ten it became here are the doctors in your territory you must see this one x amount of times per month. Some of these doctors didn't even use the type of pharmaceuticals we sold so there was no benefit to do that. If you didn't you got less than expected on your year end review. Even if you were well above quota.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to give a quota does it really matter how your sales people attain it, stop making them check the boxes for reasons that don't grow business. We know what we are doing!

    I worked at Sanofi-Aventis full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Generally the people in Sanofi are good to work with. There are a few exceptions and unfortunately they are in higher positions and cause inconvenience to others.
    Health insurance is of high quality.
    End of service payments are good.

    Cons

    There management in Sanofi is highly driven by internal politics rather than business interest and productivity.
    Salaries could be improved significantly to compete with other large companies.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that promotions are based on the more qualified people rather than those who play the politics without productivity.
