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.

Genzyme Invests in Volunteer Efforts

Through the Genzyme Invests in Volunteer Efforts (G.I.V.E.) program, Genzyme supports charities chosen by employees. Any employee can organize a team to volunteer and/or fundraise for a charity, and they can earn a G.I.V.E. grant for the charity from Genzyme in recognition of the volunteer team’s efforts.

Genzyme Australia and New Zealand also encourages our employees to be involved in community support activities. This commitment is demonstrated through a number of initiatives that include:

  • Corporate Volunteering – employees are given one day per year to participate in corporate volunteering projects.
  • Workplace Giving – staff have been given the opportunity to regularly donate a part of their pre-tax salary to a charity and the company has committed to matching staff contributions dollar for dollar.
  • Fundraising support – the company will match dollar for dollar all employee- driven charitable fundraising efforts.
  • Community Service Abroad – providing staff with the opportunity to take one month’s leave on full pay, to work in an Australian or overseas disadvantaged area of their choice.

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 recognises 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

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.
