Corporate Organization and Roles

It's the great thing about being here. You don't have to be a doctor, you don't have to be a scientist, because everybody has a role to play. And in that role, you are helping someone to live.
— Wally Amorin
Director Genzyme Supply Chain

Understanding how Sanofi Genzyme is structured and what kinds of positions our business requires can help prospective employees see where they might best fit in.
Find Your Place

If you're interested in the health care industry, Sanofi Genzyme offers many opportunities. Because our operations cover the full spectrum of medical biotechnology, from product development to manufacturing to delivery and patient support, our employees fulfill a wide variety of functions:

  • Lab-based research and development
  • Clinical research
  • Manufacturing operations
  • Materials and distribution
  • Sales and marketing
  • Medical affairs
  • Regulatory affairs
  • Patient services
  • Facilities engineering
  • Corporate functions, such as finance, IT, legal, human resources, administrative

Sanofi Genzyme has three broad types of work sites: research and development centers, manufacturing facilities, and corporate sites. Certain functional roles are often (although not always) tied to a particular site type. Here are some examples:

Type of Site Associated Roles
R&D Center
  • Scientist
  • Research associate
  • Lab supervisor
  • Lab technician
  • Biostatistician
  • Pharmacologist
  • Clinical physician
  • Product safety specialist
  • Regulatory specialist
Manufacturing Facility
  • Formulation scientist
  • Process engineer
  • Materials/supply coordinator
  • Equipment technician
  • Manufacturing supervisor
  • Training coordinator
  • Logistics coordinator
  • Quality control specialist
Corporate Site
  • Product manager
  • Marketing specialist
  • Business development associate
  • Regulatory affairs associate
  • Medical liaison
  • Sales representative
  • Sales analyst
  • Patient advocate
  • Reimbursement/billing specialist

Some of the positions described above are very clearly tied to a particular disease area, such as sales and marketing for a specific product. Other non-product-specific positions may also be dedicated to a single business unit – for example, a research associate for Rare Diseases. Many roles, however, operate outside of our business unit structure, serving a particular facility or Sanofi Genzyme's corporate needs. Our recruiters can help you further understand how the roles you are interested in fit into our bigger organizational picture.
