Working Here


Genzyme's culture is inspired – and built – by our employees, and the dedication they demonstrate every day to thinking creatively, working together, and making that extra effort in the service of our bigger shared goals.

An Exceptional Workplace

Are you interested in having a meaningful impact on the health and lives of people around the world? Looking for a positive, stimulating work environment that offers both tangible and intangible rewards? Excited about the possibilities of biotech and the future of medicine? Eager to work with bright, motivated colleagues who are experts in their fields? Genzyme's corporate culture sets the stage for just such opportunities. We've always believed that being a great place to work is what makes us a company that accomplishes great work.

Making an Impact

Genzyme's workplace culture is rooted in our corporate values: innovation, entrepreneurialism, compassion, collaboration, drive, and integrity. Guided by these principles, we've established an environment that nurtures autonomy, yet encourages teamwork, that inspires employees to think big while empowering them to take hands-on action.

Our employees benefit from the stability and resources of a large, established company, but the entrepreneurial spirit and "can-do" attitude of our earliest start-up days continue to infuse our culture. Every employee recognizes that somewhere, a patient is waiting for our help – lending a sense of purpose to our working environment.

Our Values in Action
We're proud of the way our employees embody Genzyme's corporate values in their day-to-day activities – here are just a few examples:
Developing our enzyme replacement therapy for Pompe disease, required truly inventive efforts – from the scientists who originated the cell lines, to staff that reengineered our manufacturing facilities, to the team that designed and implemented complex clinical trials.

Career Development

Widely recognized as one of the industry's leading employers, Genzyme offers every employee a path to succeed – and the resources, support, and inspiration to drive their professional development.

At Genzyme, we have a strong record of promoting from within, and many of our top leaders have built a significant portion of their careers moving through the company. We're deeply invested in the unique talents, skills, and interests of our employees, and we believe that any position at Genzyme offers the opportunity for professional development.
