    Pros

    Very good benefits, Management treats people well, values a positive culture. Good work-life balance and flexible hours

    Cons

    Not competitive in salary in Boston area, difficult to advance once you're inside, they are consolidating/closing sites and moving everyone into cubicles. Typical large pharma problems, too much churn, not enough collaboration. They have also cut back on little perks like food at meetings and travel, which is basically nickel and diming employees rather than focus on improving efficiency and work product. Turnover... can be high too.

    Pros

    Good company if you want work life balance and you want a long career in a solid company.

    Cons

    Large company problems that most large companies have. Constant focus on spend instead of efficiency and professional development.

    Advice to Management

    Try to simplify processes. Even though it is constantly listed as a goal, it is not achieved due to constant process changes and the sole focus on finance.

    I have been working at Sanofi full-time

    Pros

    Sanofi is a large company that seems to always have pipeline which is good for job security. The benefits are pretty good and the work life balance is manageable. Management personnel are hands on and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Manufacturing is run in a fairly lean style so people do multi-task and possibly play more than one role. Also at a certain point there is limited room for upward mobility.
