Highly regulated with great benefits and company culture
Packaging Technician (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 March 2017
Sanofi is one of the best pharmaceuticals to kick off your career, gain critical skills that helps one to thrive in a highly regulated company. It is an environment full of great minds that come together to create an amazing and successful company!
The overall culture is of learning and gaining experience but with limited advancement possibilities.
Deputy Director Capex Procurement (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 8 February 2017
Sanofi is a Global company therefore, long and unusual hours of work are a regular feature (Meetings with China, India, Europe, South America etc). Category Management Sourcing Strategies, Negotiations, Purchasing Strategies, Global and Regional Strategies, complex RFPs, RFQs, Tenders, Reverse Auctions is a part of my everyday work. Management is autonomous for mid level managers but can lead to a disconnect because of the same reasons. The challenge is to work with Regional and Global teams to deliver integrated and seamless services and projects.

Good place to work there are plenty of really good people wanting to work hard. however some get caught up in politics and poiting blame instead of overcoming barriers togetther as a team. It is a good place to work once you understand how the politics work. THe company is also full of resources and even though there is a union the environment is really good between management and union
very hard to keep your job a lot restructuration and a lot of uncertainty co workers efficient very nice office and a nice lunch area to help focus and work management is under a lot of pressure all the time

Sanofi Pasteur is a company that makes a huge impact in the world. It is a privilege to work for a company that saves lives. Although it is still a business at the end of the day, the fact that you are part of an organization that is saving lives, you give more value to your contributions to the company.
The company has great culture that promotes diversity, People are very professional and have continuous drive for excellence.
Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 1 May 2015
Worked here for 15 years and the company has definitely taken a turn for the worst. It fosters a culture of fear for loosing ones job and manage employees by intimidation. It seems the only people who get promoted are people who are not progressive, not achieving and only go to the school of sucking up. This company continues to languish while other companies promote a team environment where everyone works in collaboration and TEAM.
If you are just looking for plain experience this company is OK, but if you are looking to learn from the best in industry and be progressive - this place is not for you.
Engineer. (Current Employee) – Toronto – 15 January 2015
Overall a nice place to work BUT GEM or EIT is not a good department to work in. Groupism, favoritism, cunningness are the desired virtue. majority of people in the middle management level are not qualified. Project controls and the maintenance are the worst. In holes and corners discussions are favorite time pass. Good for the initial experience and move out as soon as you can.
