Cut throat
Production Technician (Current Employee) –  Swiftwater, PADecember 13, 2018
Not everyone is treated the same. Some people will get in trouble for the same things that other people don't get in trouble for. Managers have to give at least 1 of their employees a needs improvement every year, even if you don't deserve it, they still pick one from each manager. They don't care about work/life balance. They'll tell you that you have to be here in snow storms and in another breath tell you to take in consideration your safety, the judge you that you didn't come because you felt unsafe to drive.
Pros
Benefits, but they keep taking them away
Cons
Work/life, raises, unfair managing

very collaborative
quality (Current Employee) –  Framingham, MADecember 10, 2018
Easily accessible on rt 9 in Framingham. Offers transportation to Cambridge buildings. Holiday shut down and good bonuses.
Raises are not very good and some people get promoted but barely get a raise. There is no holiday party and very little reward for hard work or staying late, etc unless you are lucky to have a really good manager. Work life balance varies from one manager to another, constant training's and the culture is a bit stuffy but overall not a bad company.
Pros
holiday shut down, good bonuses
Cons
no work life balance, lousy raises

Just like a Family
Project Coordinator / Pharmaceutical Sales Rep. (Former Employee) –  Bridgewater, NJJanuary 2, 2019
This place has it all.. It has the right mixture of competitive edge and collaborative style. Work life balance is definitely a concept that they understand. Working here is like working with family. A typical day can consist of many meetings with members at all levels of management spanning many different departments. There is a great deal of cross-functional collaboration. A truly wonderful place to work.

Happy to go to work, everyday. Enjoy the challenge, and environment.
Metabolism Institutional Account Rep (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OHDecember 2, 2018
I welcome a challenging work environment, where I can utilize my skills, to accomplish company goals. The corporate culture drives the overall motivation for all employees, and aids in the overall success of the organization.
Pros
Excellent salary with decent bonus incentive, positive work environment, very good benefits.
Cons
When a company gets overly large, with so many layers of leadership, that the ease of accomplishing overall goals lessens.

A "very French" company
Medical Science Liaison (Current Employee) –  Bridgewater, NJDecember 10, 2018
Sanofi is a very large company that is steered from Paris. Accordingly, the company is apt to make decisions for distant markets (like the US) that are inappropriate and not reflective of the business needs. There are near yearly reorganizations, as if a new business unit and structure will fix the larger issues with the size and culture of the company. Things happen slowly, and contracting is nearly impossible.

Could Be Better
Grunt (Former Employee) –  Taylor, PAJanuary 14, 2019
My favorite job.
I looked forward to going to work every day.

til one day i didn't.

You never know when you start time is or when you're going home.
You might be told to work the weekend and then you'll be told at the last minute not to. You may be told you won't work the weekend and at the last minute you'll be told to come in.

You might be there 2 hours on a weekend or 10 hours.

who knows?
Pros
benefits, pay, co-workers
Cons
no communication

Different Sites will have different cultures/expectations.
Manager (Current Employee) –  Swiftwater, PAOctober 30, 2018
The Sanofi Pasteur site is less than expected. High rates of pay inequality between outside hires and inside promotions. Culture is focused highly on meeting metrics that are either not fully conceived or do not actually provide any benefit to company. (Other than looking good on paper) No move toward updating the production process or integrate new R&D possibilities.

Genzyme (Ridgefield, NJ) was awesome but Sanofi, not so much
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Ridgefield, NJDecember 26, 2018
Pressure cooker environment, your health & wellbeing could suffer (really all depends on your manager). Bullying & sexism is tolerated (again, it sadly depends on your manager) but YOU don’t have to take any abuse unless you need to make a living. There are so many other much nicer places to work.
Excellent benefits but rather stingy pay. Interesting responsibilities & good opportunities for growth, but it mostly depends on your manager’s opinion of you. Beware of TOXIC bullying managers exerting “little emperor syndrome” & rather clueless upper management wondering why the turnover rate is so very high but only for specific departments. Find a better workplace, it’s not that hard!
Pros
Excellent benefits but rather stingy pay
Cons
Beware of TOXIC bullying managers

Difficult to evaluate
Associate Brand Manager, Medicated Skincare (Current Employee) –  Chattanooga, TNNovember 30, 2018
The company is restructuring in Consumer Healthcare Branch and it is likely that the new leadership in New Jersey will be a different type of employee than the Chattanooga staff. The leadership in Chattanooga was some of the best people I have ever worked for.
Pros
Brand ownership and empowerment
Cons
uncertain future, time of change

Unstable Pharma company
SENIOR SALES REPRESENTATIVE, Diabetes Division (Former Employee) –  New Haven, CTOctober 16, 2018
While Sanofi trains its employees well and has great products.. It's employment stability is poor. I worked there for 2 years and endured 2 layoffs at year end.. 650 employees in 2 years displaced Merry Christmas.. If your looking to grow with a company this one is not a good bet!! Many long tenured employees displaced, poor management and low salaries..

Great environment for working parents but
Analyst (Former Employee) –  New JerseySeptember 20, 2018
There is a lot of work/life balance and flexibility depending on your department. The office itself is modern and has great amenities. Benefits are the best I have ever had. But I had been in the same job for 4 years. You can get stuck in working on transnational tasks until they find an automation that can replace you. It is really hard to move up in the organization unless you have strong connections with leadership. I had to find a job externally to progress in my career.

High speed, High octane contract environment
Deskside Support Technician (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, MASeptember 11, 2018
Fast paced ticket driven IT support, with heavy shoulder tapping component added in.
Terrific place to learn and expand IT knowledge. Excellent hard working and sharing IT staff.
Friendly yet demanding management.
Hardest part of the job is to stay on top of the daily work wave, as falling under the wave becomes very stressful, unsatisfactory.

Air of teamwork with competent, hard working, friendly coworkers helps each other to get the job done. Excellent experience to be had, if you can keep up with the heady pace.

Leader within the industry with strong focus on public health
Senior Research Associate (Current Employee) –  PennsylvaniaAugust 31, 2018
French ownership has provided diversity and allowed for superior benefits/vacation packages compared to all other non-pharma industries in the region. In some ways this may counterbalance the less competitive salaries for the same jobs in bigger cities but is somewhat fair for the specific location of some sites. Technology is becoming a stronger focus but still somewhat behind compared to smaller companies. Excellent values and focus on quality continue to drive this company while maintaining its foothold in the business sector.

Reputable company, fosters learning and efficiency
Production Technician (Current Employee) –  Swiftwater, PANovember 2, 2018
The work load varies from one department to another. There are lots of learning opportunities and they have you take classes and read documents once a month so you can be familiar and informed with all aspects of your job.
Pros
Looks great on your Resume
Cons
Hard to get hired permanent

Poor Leadership and HR Ticking Time Bomb
Digital Initiative Lead (Current Employee) –  Bridgewater, NJAugust 30, 2018
There is no leadership at this company, making its goal to become a Top 3 Pharma Company by 2020 almost laughable. If you are an American, you likely will not enjoy working here as the culture is 100% French, as is the leadership. Decision making is not a strength, and the worst French/American stereotypes are at play.

Additionally the company seems to care not about its middle management and has placed very inexperienced and ethically unsound people into these positions.

Try to hire the Manpower workers because they do all the job even without benefit
Harvest Worker (Former Employee) –  Swiftwater, PAAugust 30, 2018

Pros

Cons
No Room for growth mostly if you are BLACK.
