      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Sydney

      I worked at Sanofi full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      - Flexible work hours - Good location with parking and close to trains/buses - Great place to work if you’re not looking for a career (constantly employing contractors, as theres no room for head count)

      Cons

      - Managers can be clueless and lack people skills (never listen or take feedback). Constantly trying to explain processes with incompetent managers becomes unbearable. - Managers lack of self-awareness was too much; shaming and threatening your team to get results is ineffective and is a prime example of how weak managers deal with problems. - People stick to their own ‘groups’ and go out of their way to make others...

      Advice to Management

      - Effective managers are always a people person and actually listen to team memebers - Hire experienced managers - Low performing managers make people want to quit (and they can’t wait to get out) - Don't encourage staff to do the wrong thing just to benefit yourself, it is not only appalling but completely unacceptable.

      I worked at Sanofi full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      Was a great culture, work hard, was a great GM, was a great team that pulled together.

      Cons

      There was a change in leadership over two years ago and since then, the CHC division has gone downhill. The leadership is bullish, lacks care for people or strategy. Top talent have left and others are looking to leave. There is a lack of understanding of an FMCG business now and while sales are good, the team are miserable and have turned on each other. The people who are left are trying to do their best but lack...

      Negative Outlook
      No Opinion of CEO

      I worked at Sanofi full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Good products and pipeline both ethical and complementary with great benefits for customers and staff. Strong ethical standards both internally and externally

      Cons

      Very little work life balance and very political . Management is lacking depth and is known for promoting "Boys club members" and has tendency to not listen to proactive and practical ideas . Little room for career growth if not favoured by the "Club"

      Advice to Management

      Stop setting policies in place just to appear that you are perceived to be doing the right thing. Be more open to ideas that have proven merit

      Too many cogs- takes a long time to get anything done. No part time work and flexible conditions are often 5 day job squished into 4

      Improve people resourcing to reduce work stress, look at real part time work
