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

    Pros

    Great culture, many opportunities! My manager was wonderful. Always helping me to advance my career. From what I saw, most managers were the same.

    Cons

    My last year was actually 2008. At that time they were not very flexible on regarding working remotely, this is why I left. Otherwise, I would probably still be there.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully you have come around and adjusted your working remotely policies. If not, you really need to. It is not imperative to physically be in the office 5 days a week for most positions.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, rewarding culture and atmosphere. After Sanofi "merger" benefits improved, at the cost of the flexibility and small company feel

    Cons

    Flexibility was lost after the merger and sanofi's tendency to layer reorganizations year after year, combined with continuous changes in their direction created a tense atmosphere and frustration. Increased bureaucracy slows thing down.

    Advice to Management

    Start thinking and investing long-term again, built programs instead of buying them.
