Stay Away!!
Facilities (Former Employee), Lynnwood, WashingtonAugust 26, 2013
Pros: free lunches
Cons: very poor management, lack of support, my manager took way too much time off and was hardly there for decision making, passed the buck t
The employees there are great, but some departments do not work well with others and don't support fully the expectations of teamwork.

Management likes to pass the buck too much.

My Manager took way too much time off, came in late, left early.

HR was useless for any conflict resolution.

Good old boys attitude.

They keep so-called "temps" working – more... there for years never making them permanent employees.

But they do have some great employees that were a joy to work with. – less

Great company but due to an acquisition it was downsized and we were no longer needed.
Senior Clinical Data Associate (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXJune 21, 2013
Overall, Genzyme was a great company however was top heavy. The decision making & the approval process was very slow (too many hands in the pot). Otherwise, the benefits, salary & educational experiences were very good.
