Explain your job to a 10-year-old or to your grandmother/grand-uncle/nephew, etc.
In simple terms, I check that vaccines are made according to good practices.
What is your educational background ?
I have a DUT diploma (Diplôme Universitaire de Technologie, university diploma in technology) in Chemistry obtained in Orleans and a Master II in Analytical Chemistry and Quality obtained in Poitiers.
How did you know about Pharmacos and what made you decide to join the company?
I responded to an ad on LEEM. I met Morgan there again – I had worked with him in my previous projects. During the interview (conducted by Morgan), I quickly understood that Pharmacos was a human-centred organization and that the people who recruited me knew the job. These are the factors that made me join Pharmacos.
What aspects of your job do you enjoy the most?
I particularly appreciate evolving in the Pharmaceutical and Quality field. I’d like to add the management part. These three aspects in which I wish to evolve make me feel good in my professional life.
How did Pharmacos help you develop your skills?
At the risk of appearing capricious, Pharmacos has always responded favourably to my requests for change. I wanted to work on projects with several clients and in different fields – and I had everything I wanted!! Finally, I wanted to be a manager. And here we are now – I have 10 consultants under my responsability. In short, Pharmacos and especially my hierarchy helped me a lot in developing my skills, trusting me and helping me when I needed it.
What three words best describe Pharmacos for you?
Our team spirit (it ought to count as three words!)
What advice would you give to new recruits?
Do not hesitate to call us (us “old ones”), we have plenty of advice to give! Do not feel alone, we’re here!
What do you like most about Pharmacos?
I appreciate having a say, being able to communicate what I need and the best part is that I’m being listened to! I appreciate this feeling of belonging.
What has been your proudest moment since you have been at Pharmacos?
When my Manager wrote “very good performance” in my individual interview. It’s very personal but it makes me pleased. Apart from that, I admit that it’s our days of Teambuilding which make me realize how strong our team spirit is.
In your opinion, what is the difference between Pharmacos and other consulting firms?
I have a lot to say but it is this closeness that makes Pharmacos so rich, whatever our title, I have this feeling of closeness that reassures me and does me good as a project manager. On the other hand, we are close to the customer (at least at Sanofi pasteur and Bohringer) and an undeniable confidence has been established.
What is your dream destination for the next team building?
I do not have any expectations of grandeur, but just a skiing weekend (2/3days) would already be exceptional!!
