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

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, great supportive team. Lots to learn in an encouraging environment.

    Cons

    To many trainings. I thought as a Research Associate working in lab I donot need to be trained in how to track expenses made by sales teams and how to allocate money for client related expenses. But every few months I had to do an hour more online training for that and it would take away time from experiments. Also they have limited - 2 year max- contract terms.

    I worked at Sanofi Genzyme full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, none, none, none, none, none and more none. Franingham is the worst site I have ever worked. Worst leadership. No drug testing and it shows.

    Cons

    Horrible upper management and leadership. Nonexistent HR. Zero development and staff retention. Expect to deliver a 1% raise for most members of your staff and a 2% raise for you as a top performer.

    Advice to Management

    Learn basic GMP. One star as I had to.
