    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.
