    Best place to work

    Engineering Technical Writer (Current Employee) Rensselaer, NY

    ProsPeople really want to get their work done, and done right. Great company culture of integrity. Lots of leftover free food from meetings. Friendly people. Rapid growth rate.

    ConsOn-boarding needs to be streamlined. The occasional mild sexual harassment case goes unreported, but this is not the norm, and seems to be concentrated in a few individuals.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave sexual harassment refreshers periodically, please. Everything else is very positive, and should continue as-is.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good Culture, Vibrant and Helpful Atmosphere

    Intern (Former Employee) Tarrytown, NY

    ProsInterned at the Oncology & Angiogenesis Department, loved the intellectual atmosphere of the group and how nice everyone was. They also managed to retain the active startup culture despite having grown to a large company with 1000+ employees.

    ConsThe intern program seemed a bit unstructured, although I imagine it would get better very fast with a wonderfully responsive Intern Recruitment head.

    This is a great place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Tarrytown, NY

    ProsRegeneron is very good at making you feel like a part of the "family".

    ConsIf you are not upper management, your desk is typically in a large room filled with coworkers of a similar level. It can be quite distracting at times.

    I was a research intern in various laboratories for 4 years

    Research Intern (Former Employee) Tarrytown, NY

    ProsGreat mentors, plenty of academic, facility and financial resources, very fair pay, balanced work-life balance. HR is always planning events for interns and employees. Most scientists are very friendly and approachable. The company is also kind to its staff by providing free rides from the north white plains and tarrytown train stations in the morning and afternoon. Gym facilities and a discounted food court, offering quality food are also very nice!

    ConsWould be nice if interns had access to the gym facilities. The location is a bummer for young people, since there isn't much to do in suburban Tarrytown. There really isn't an option to eat-out (walking distance)...everything is take-out.

    ProsEmphasis on good science
    Good home/work balance
    Lots of encouragement by senior management
