    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

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Sanofi full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and parental leave policy

    Cons

    No parking, too much red tape, must follow corporate guidelines and drink the kool-aid to survive. To many forced corporate morning meetings (that do nothing and a waste of time)...but if you drink up the corporate beverage you'll go far.
    It's not about the patient anymore at Sanofi...it's all about the stock price

    Great management. Lots of opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Pay is too low and below industry standards. Vaccine specialist are not primary care representative or entry level sales people. They are truly account managers and hospital representatives. The pay should be higher for the type of jobs they do.
