I learned how to productively work in a group. The hardest part of the job was to keep busy whenever there was downtime. The most enjoyable part of the job was the resignition individually and as a group.
International Clinical Study Manager (Former Employee) – Malvern, PA – October 7, 2016
The Sanofi Oncology department in Malvern, PA included a talented group of trial managers, data managers, project managers and senior managers who delivered challenging studies within timelines and budget. The closing of the Malvern,PA facility in June 2011 resulted in the loss of a many great team members and clinical research experts.
Challenging work, good teamwork, managers were supportive
Reorganization resulted in NJ/MA locations expanding and PA site closing..
Great people and company has activities to support employees at the site.
Materials Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) – Northborough, MA – October 18, 2016
Unrealistic expectations. Poor employee morale due to poor leaders. High employee turnover due to poor management. The company owns you due 24/7 365 and runs lean. Too many projects which takes away from running the operation efficiently. HR is no better.
Terrible leadership. Major in the minor and micro-manage. too many projects.
IT Consultant (Former Employee) – Framingham, MA – August 26, 2016
Stressful environment with a constant scare of layoff. Professional training is provided to some who are close to management. Management mostly cares about their own benefits and do not value hard work. The hardest part of the job to deal with mediocre management. The best part of the job is to work with professional Genzyme people that are still working for Sanofi.
The typical day at work was much like other Pharmaceutical Companies. We made our calls on physicians and pharmacist working hard to educate and influence them to use our products. I was fortunate to have different products in my bag. I had a lot of experience with Cardiovascular and Diabetes disease state which I found very interesting.
I loved working with my teams and managers and made life long friends!
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Swiftwater, PA – August 7, 2016
Too many contractors. Everyone holds on by a thread, not knowing when they'll be let go. Managers make mistakes and scapegoat the closest contractor, then let them go shorty thereafter. No-one is upfront about what they think of your contribution; no matter what you do, even exceptionally well, they find minor fault with it. Being one minute late to a meeting draws an accusation that you are 'unprofessional'; lots of back stabbing behind closed doors, mostly negative rumoring about other workers. Overall environment is toxic and demeaning.
Leftover lunches after meetings are over, you have to wait though until everyone else is done. My dog gets better scraps.
No job security, very few contractors convert to full time employees.
Security Network Architect (Former Employee) – Cambridge, MA – July 21, 2016
Sanofi is a big Pharmaceutical company which bought Genzyme back in 2010, office in Cambridge is still have liberal mentality even though the Sanofi French methodology of work try to be injected. Vacations are good and 8 hrs daily work is enough to finish the daily tasks .
vacation, 401K, health insurance, daily 8 hrs work
French mentality of deliver and execute the project wont work.
A typical day at work was very productive and challenge due to the professional culture that requires us to be the front runner in the pharmaceutical business. I learned the strategic, and logistics planning of the Pharmaceutical industry. My upper management were very supportive of getting all the latest technology and education training by proving opportunities within the company and outside the company. My co-workers were very professional and team players. The hardest part of the job was having to deal with the Bridgewater township in some of our critical construction and or renovation project. The most enjoyable part of the job was the interactions with the scientific community and the support team.
Continue Education Training Program; Annual Bonus & Salary raise
I worked with three other operator and we love one another like family. Calls were from all over the world. A very diverse company to work with. The hardest part of the job was being told we were being outsourced. The most enjoyable part was working there for ten years. The best job I ever had.

Director (Former Employee) – Bridgewater, NJ – June 2, 2016
Company is under new leadership and as such, massive reorganization. The intent of the reorganization was sensible but has not always been executed as intended and significant job elimination has occurred. High hopes that they will fine tune things and reach their potential. Enjoyed working there.
Great colleagues. Training, development, on-site services, compensation, benefits, some great leaders.
Caliber of leadership is inconsistent but at the highest level is solid.
Very good working environment, salary and benefits
