    I worked at Sanofi full-time

    Pros

    Rather high salaries
    Very intelligent employees
    Friendly environment
    Care about staff
    Try to apply best practices
    Environment of constant feedbacks

    Cons

    Job security is not there for certain positions, as many of employees are getting fired easily
    Lack of freedom, everything is controlled by the HQ
    No Flex Time

    Advice to Management

    The largest turnover is due to some personalities (managers), so they should care about their teams and instead of bossing, just show their commitment to work

    Pros

    Very good people and very good opportunities given to employees for development.

    Very flat organisation but advantage is that decisions are taken quickly. Not much room for carrier advancement.

    Talent management in place but the organisation needs to have more resources. Too much restructurations.

    There is no Collaboration at this company. Everyone is secretive. Direction changes daily. There is no respect for people

    I worked at Sanofi full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Large organization with some mobility to Sanofi-Genzyme and Sanofi-Pasteur

    Cons

    Disorganized interview process. Lengthy interview process. Low-ball base pay offer. Gamey antics when discussing salary. Rather impolite organizational leadership and support staff.

    Advice to Management

    Don't ask for PhD and MD education for MSL's then expect to pay them $110K/year. Education isn't cheap. Yes, you can take someone from sales and put them in this role and they would be happy with $110k... the difference is 8 years of education and the subsequent student loans.

    Good work-life balance. Fair management. Good hours. Technical work, and the freedom to complete it in adequate time. No problems.

    Work was so technically oriented that you might loose touch of the "big picture" of the business, and how the business works.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more context to the working of the business, and its risks, and goals. Communicate more with employees.
