    Pros

    Not much to mention, colleagues / teammates a plus.

    Cons

    Basic. For a multinational company, the healthcare benefits vary greatly from company to company that some would be shocked by level of benefits.

    Pros

    Employee benefits and paid time off are still among the best in the industry.

    Cons

    Sanofi US leadership is in shambles for a few years now. Huge restructuring replaced most leadership but time will tell if they can work together effectively. That will be a big undertaking but the prior senior leaders were mostly idiots who were impressed with prior achievements which had little to do with their abilities and more to do with having been at the right place or company at the right time. Paris has reasserted itself and that may not be such a good thing for US in the end.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck - you're going to need some. Oh, and if you want to improve Sanofi:
    1. Reward ability, competence and accomplishment not just your "friends."
    2. Tell everyone to put their knives away and work together for the common good.

    Pros

    Autonomy. Hire very smart people who are passionate about their jobs and the patients.

    Cons

    Not quick to promote. Seem to promote younger employees over more qualified tenured employees. No room for growth. Pay and benefits more advantageous to the French counterparts.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more equitably.
