    I worked at Sanofi full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good salaries, generally. Nice campus.

    Cons

    Poor corporate culture. Not a lot of unifying glue. Everybody's in it for themselves - especially the leadership. Continual re-orgs to keep employees off balance, allow hiring & firing. The best are not hired and the worst are not fired.
     Not adept at picking products and partners to run with. Easy to get stuck in a box and stay there...for years.

    Advice to Management

    Create a positive corporate culture. Even the pursuit of excellence can work (does not equal elitism). Be more selective in picking departmental managers.

    Pros

    highly qualified co-workers to collaborate with

    Cons

    scattered upper management, constant change, never long enough at one philosophical way to do business. contantly threatening with metrics, not true customer relationships or patient outcomes.

    Advice to Management

    get a grip and focus and less hostile management with downsizing or layoffs looming
