    I have been working at Sanofi full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sanofi (Waterford) in January 2019.

    Interview

    Applied through agencyVery brief interview, maybe 15 minutes in total. Asked 3 maybe 4 questions from a list of pre-supplied competencies. Completely ghosted afterwards despite multiple attempts to follow up. Still waiting to be told was unsuccessful in fact. Very un-professional.
