    Pros

    They care about the happiness of their staff more than any other company I have heard of.

    Cons

    As with any company, they sometimes seem to overwork some of the permanent people.

    My summer internship with Regeneron was very useful and fulfilling.

    I worked at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals

    Pros

    As far as summer internships go, Regeneron's is top notch. The pay is very good for a college student, and there are many opportunities to work with other students.

    Cons

    There was a lot of focus on the work and the lab needs to lighten up a bit. Even though the group was easy to talk to, they were too uptight about some issues.

    Strong belief in value add to the founders vision

    Departmental leadership varies by group and not all are true managers and leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about the customer, both internal and external, as opposed to cost for services.

    Pros

    There is good science behind every project. It has a very scientific driven leadership. They have an exciting pipeline and great potential to keep growing

    Cons

    I was surprise to see that it is actually a conservative company in many aspects, with a risk averse culture. Maybe now that is financially more stable this may change

    Pros

    Great science drives the company, good scientists, good atmosphere, hard workers, nice people, all people working for the patients, growing company

    Cons

    Very manager dependent, some departments & situations are not good. May be hard to move within Company. Promotion processes are not transparent, at times they do not seem fair/merit based. Rating system is arbitrary. HR department is not supportive of employees or middle managers at all; they play silly games. Pay is on the low side for pharma industry. Commercial group is becoming more influential in the science.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please stay true to the scientific and patient focussed mission. Commercial success will follow good science and medicine, commercial must not lead.

    I have been working at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    The salaries were recently increased in the research area. The facility is nice and reasonably new.

    Cons

    The review system and promotions result in a lot of negativity. The point system really relates to how many years in that position rather than how well you work. The promotions are mostly done by time in the position also meaning that those that perceive themselves as hard-workers get de-motivated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ways to identify harder workers or those who go above and beyond would improve moral.
    A change in the promotion system is required.

    Pros

    Great culture, lots of parties, and great stock options.

    Cons

    Sometimes management can be tricky.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More trainings for managers to become leaders. They are great at their work, but not always at leading the group.
