Does Sanofi offer relocation assistance?

Pros

Great benefits package - amazing 401K match (150%), great health plan coverage, company shutdown over the winter holidays

Cons

No work life balance - constantly expected to work 10+ hours per day. Travel time is not considered when determining work hours (i.e. travel time is in addition to working time). Leadership is solely focused on quantity over quality. Feedback falls on deaf ears.

Does Sanofi offer dental insurance?

Pros

I have worked at multiple companies, and I would say that Sanofi is by far one of the best places I have worked at. The biggest strength about Sanofi is undoubtedly the people -- I have never been refused help, and people come together to help others complete projects when needed. I also relate to the "play to win" behaviors as part of the company evolution. In addition to the people, I think that the leaders are very approachable and down to earth. There are very little people who are immersed in their titles, and I have always been made to feel important and welcome. The company has great employee resource groups (ERGs) where you can get mentoring and expand beyond your current role. The science is decent, the R&D pipeline is good, with investment in multiple modalities, and the commercial lining of products is also good. Other than all these things, there is a sense of pride I feel when I say that I work for Sanofi. I have seen other reviews about the compensation and benefits, but they are decent. The 401k contributions is generous and the health insurance and dental insurance are good. Work life balance is very good.

Cons

Some aspects of bureaucracy can be a little frustrating, but it happens in every big pharma.

Does Sanofi have a pension plan?

Pros

This is a large, multi-national company with lots of investment and fast-changing portflio, which allows for participation in multiple different projects. Career prospects are great - if not within the department, within the company there are multiple opportunities to progress. There is also a generous continuous education allowance, which allows one to study towards a selected degree while working. The company invests in the wellbeing of the employees, there is a staff canteen, coffee dock and gym on site, good health insurance and pension benefits, free parking.

Cons

As in many large places, the employee satisfaction depends largely on the direct management - with good leaders the work is great, with bad leaders it can become a nightmare. I personally have had a good experience, but in some departments the staff turn around is quick because it's not as great. There is not much R&D involved in the fill-finish site I work on, so career progression in scientific research is limited. Career progression within the own department is also limited.

Advice to Management

Focus more on the positive feedback - people work hard to deliver goals, most of the time nobody aknowledges that it has been noticed.
