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

    Pros

    Good benefits, good development, respect for employees. My overall experience working for Sanofi was enjoyable. I can recommend them as an employer.

    Cons

    With all the structure in place at Sanofi, you are somewhat insulated from the outside world, so it is important to make sure you keep abreast of developments in your field of expertise.

    Advice to Management

    Try to reduce bureaucracy.

    I have been working at Sanofi full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits in comparison to other pharma companies.
    Good facilities and friendly environment.
    A lot of well prepared and high performing workers.

    Cons

    Very difficult and not achievement based progression.
    Personal preferences prevail over professional performance.
    Management team is not concerned about rest of employees needs.

    Advice to Management

    Offering opportunities for progression to talented employees will create more productive environment, where hiring externally and not recognising high performance promotes lack of engagement and often resignation.

    Good company to work for, OK packages and benefits.

    No real direction from leadership, company feels as though its lost its way and just another big pharma in decline.

    Retain your talented employees by recognising them

    Pros

    I have not only ‘grown up’ in the professional environment of a major global company, I have also established my expertise and values from a brilliant employer who depended on me to contribute and to protect their interest over many years.

    Cons

    Very difficult to find any major cons apart from minor thing like the occasional communication not being too effective. This is usually found in many multi national organisations.

    Pros

    Super friendly, everyone is willing to help you or answer any questions you may have. Good company for getting your foot in the door and building on your pharmaceutical knowledge.

    Career progression slows after a while, particularly in clinical trials at CRA level.

    Pros

    The people are some of the nicest people I have ever worked with. They genuinely care about the therapy lines produced and wanting to make a difference to patients lives. It was an energetic and respectful workplace where people work hard but can also enjoy it.

    Cons

    A lot has changed across all Departments both front and back office. Senior management have changed and the strategy moved to cost and headcount cutting.
