    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

    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.

    Pros

    People are friendly and it is the only pharmaceutical to work for in the area with decent pay rate

    Cons

    Pay scale is messed up for the work being done in company. A highly skilled worker gets payed the same or less than a worthless employee or job function.

    Advice to Management

    Different departments should not be getting paid the same wage.
