    I have been working at Sanofi full-time

    Pros

    Doing HR globally for Regulatory Affairs gives a unique perspective on the diversity of our talented teams present across 90 countries… but culture is not the only differentiating factor. Educational/Professional background, hunger for experimentation, risk appetite, collaborative dynamics, influence abilities… and all what the people as human being bring, is just inspiring.
    The digital era is changing tremendously the business (moving from document to data) and the workplace. There’s so much opportunities in building the future of the regulated environment.

    Cons

    Clock is ticking, there’s a sense of urgency in moving this function forward

    Pros

    Culture
    Autonomy
    Leadership Support
    Flexibility and control of work

    Cons

    being a large pharma company, decision making is slow, and the process is extremely bureaucratic.
    Decisions often reflect the interest/good of individuals/groups, instead of the organization

    I have been working at Sanofi full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work/life balance is great in most departments with the ability to work from home up to 2 days a week and use flex hours however this is dependent on manager discretion and some teams do not allow full use of the policy.

    Cons

    The pay increases are tiny every year so it's very difficult to grow your salary unless getting promoted, which is also very difficult to do unless you have a higher up in your corner pushing for you. The management seems a little lost about their path forward which leaves a lot of groups in limbo often. The company is a French company so there is a lot of red tape and bureaucracy for even the simplest of decisions.

    I have been working at Sanofi full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I still consider it a better than average company for the pocono area. Benefits are ok and some areas do have a work life balance.

    Cons

    Cuts in all areas, overextended resources. Less people, more work. Bottom level employees absorb the brunt of the cuts with longer work hours and less work life balance. Too much reliance on contractors instead of retaining full time talent. Raises are minimal for the extension of work required. Middle and lower end managers lack the skill and many are ineffective. Many people are just down right unhappy.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, we make up the company. A 1 and 2 percent raise, if any, is minimal for a successful multi billion dollar company. Stop taking away benefits like tuition reimbursement.
