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

      Pros

      Benefits are good; flexi-time is useful if you don't have to work crazy hours!; some nice people there and it really is down to luck if you get a good manager: I had a bad manager whom actually got promoted for being a bully.

      Cons

      Bullying, bullying, and plenty of bullying: I could not believe how bad it is; lack of leadership; projects get terminated too early; people are demoralized and don't want to help out of due to fear; a management circle that is far too clicky and uses grouped bullying tactics to get work done: which of course does not work or benefit the company or its culture.

      Advice to Management

      Advice for Sanofi Global: bring in some external senior management and get rid of poor managers who are damaging the companies progress and talent pool.

        Pros

        Vhi health cover is good

        Cons

        Bullying by management. Very stressful environment loads of people out on stress leave. Management are putting their friends into jobs and not giving other candidates a chance. Jobs are not advertised just given to who the managers pick.Unachievable targets. Unfair appraisal where a person has to be knocked regardless of good performance. Pay increases are a joke 1% if you meet expectations which not even a cost of...

        Advice to Management

        Get rid of the bullys , the reputation of Sanofi Waterford is very bad. It's embarrassing to say I work there now and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It used to be a great place to work before Sanofi took over. Everyone respected and communicated with each other then but not now. It's a horrible place to work. I wouldn't even give this place 1 star if I had the option to give less.
