    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.
