    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

    - Got to work with senior leaders on challenging projects, which was a rewarding experience
    - Benefits: yoga/pilates/aerobic classes, team building

    - Truly value employees as the greatest company assets and invest in their development
