Advanced Technician (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON16 May 2018
Very contract heavy location -- low job security unless you are permanent full time. Production is very hands on. Listen to managers without question and you will advance.

good learning experience
Marketing (Former Employee) –  Laval, QC13 May 2018
There is no job security whatsoever. Restructurings happen way too frequently and people are let go despite the value they bring to a team. Their workload just gets pushed on other employees. Burnouts are common and everyone is stressed. December is “restricting period” and you essentially just sit around waiting to be called into a room with your boss where they tell you that you either kept your job or were let go. The only people who seem happy are at the top.

Benefits are great and my colleagues were incredible. No room to move up or be promoted because they are constantly cutting and tend to hire outside people for the higher up positions. Great learning experience though.
Pros
good cafeteria, great colleagues, great benefits.
Cons
No job stability, over worked, often doing tasks not associated with your job because understaffed

Great employer!
Marketing Intern (Former Employee) –  Laval, QC6 March 2018
Sanofi is a great employer. This company welcomes you to advance your career and learn about an exiting industry. The employees reflect the values of the organization and professionalism is a common denominator among them.

The best part of my job was the team that I worked for. They gave me full autonomy of certain projects and tasks and when I needed it feedback, they were open to new suggestions or to give me advise on which was the best way to proceed.
Pros
Great cafeteria with delicious menu.
Cons
It is hard to get by bus.

Can be a good place to work but priorities change all the time
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON26 February 2018
Very hierarchical and bureaucratic place to work at. Some of the timelines for projects are way too aggressive which yield sub optimal results.

Job is not bad but depends who you are working with/working for.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Must stay late to finish projects at times

Overall a good place to work!
Marketing Intern (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC13 February 2018
The employees are both welcoming and hardworking. Further, the culture promotes inclusion, work-life balance and teamwork. As such, there are good relationships between peers and with management. However, there is limited room for growth as they are strict with headcounts. This means that they offer a lot of contract work and promotions are offered more often than not to "permanent" members.
Pros
Great staff, culture and working environment
Cons
Limited room for growth

Facility Operator (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON7 January 2018
Good company to retire if you want to have a none stressed stable job protected by union. Vacation plus salary is above industry average, hard to land a full time due to limited headcount and strict union rules would limited chance of getting a normal 8-4pm work hours if you do not have seniority.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Union environment
