Negative gross margin due to ridiculously high scrap rate. Poor forecasting typically off by +25% and lots of feel good data that is massaged by MFG Engineering that hides major production issues. It's a company that can't make a profit from the items it makes (diabetic pumps/disposable cartridges) and survives from distributing OEM infusion sets it doesn't even make!
All levels of management are horrible. One bad business decision after another, followed by countless fire drills and a check the box mentality. The way they treat their people is abismol on a good day. There is no work/life balance. Sure I can work well into the night several days a week, but when I duck out a little early on a Friday I get blasted. Between Specialty & PCP we have lost 3 in the last month and there are more who are looking to get out of here STAT!
demoralizing company culture at Sanofi....the actual work is stifling and oppressive..many of the problems are industry wide but Snaofi has a terrible culture and the most mean spirited management you can imagine
Highly questionable decision making. I'm the bad girl for passing down the decisions of senior management. We ( field management) are forced to pick upon "low performers " despite managed care issues, lack of specialty rep coverage or open territories. It is really sad.
Made the big mistake of coming here from another competitor several years ago. Been trying to go back. Promises not kept. Salary and bonus sub par for the industry. Was an award winner and thought the perk was both cheap and insincere. Manager is a micromanager of tasks and lists having little to do with driving business.
I have never seen morale this low in the 9 years I have been with Sanofi, including mine. My manager is an idiot; too focused on busy work and checking boxes rather than helping us find solutions to problems we face selling, access, managed care and the like. I think it is time to look for another job. Most everyone in my group is unmotivated and disillusioned.
