Training/Development

Most careers at Regeneron are customized to individuals, allowing them to create a path and get involved in new ways. Our commitment to developing the most innovative science and helping our  employees to reach their greatest professional potential includes on-the-job training, an extensive catalog of onsite learning opportunities, and partnering with prestigious institutes of learning to provide leadership, medical and scientific development.

As a high-growth company, we worry about building the skills and knowledge needed to be a large, successful biopharmaceutical company. But we are equally worried about losing those attributes of our culture which we believe have driven our past successes and will lead to continued success over time. Several years ago, our employees identified these attributes for us. They became the “Regeneron 5”.

Regeneron 5

Science drives our business and passion drives our science. We believe great science leads to new and innovative drugs, which can improve people’s lives, grow our company and fund more great science.

We are a select team. Regeneron has very high standards for hiring people. If you are talented enough to work here, then you join a team of dedicated and talented people from all walks of life who work together to achieve our goals. Individual effort is rewarded, but true success only comes when we work together as a team.

You will be challenged. Every day. No matter your role here, you will be expected to strive for excellence in your field. You will never stop learning and you will continually be sharing your knowledge with others.

“That’s the way we’ve always done it” is the wrong answer. We will not settle for the way things have always been done. At Regeneron, we are willing to see the world in our own way, and we’re always looking for new and better ways to do things.

We won’t let bureaucracy block good ideas. Successful companies require organization and processes to function effectively. We have them too, but we work hard to ensure that process and organization at Regeneron do not stand in the way of conducting great science and developing successful drugs.

At Regeneron, we are dedicated to great science. We take pride in overcoming challenges and searching for new and better ways to do things. We develop products that improve the quality of people’s lives. Regeneron people work hard because we believe in what we do and we enjoy the people we work with. But our culture isn’t just about work. We also know how to have fun and we regularly take time to enjoy ourselves at work.

Regeneron has a strong culture and may not be the right place for everyone. So we want you to learn as much as possible about us from this website. We present the five things you should know about us before applying and we’ve included comments from employees across the Regeneron about what it is like to work here. We’ve also outlined the application process and included information about each of our locations. Keep reading to learn more about us and find out if you’re the perfect fit.

 

It’s no big secret – we know who we are (and who we aren’t) as an organization. Our culture reflects the Regeneron 5, and we haven’t strayed from these defining characteristics. We need outstanding people with the skills and talents to help us grow, but who want to work in a company where certain important things will not change: the focus on ethical behavior, on science as the key driver of the business, on the team not the individual, on embracing challenges because they are challenging, on finding new and better ways, and on avoiding bureaucracy.

We are looking for individuals who want to improve lives through science and are willing to challenge industry norms to do so. We want a team that is comfortable continuously learning and sharing knowledge—consistently working together to set and achieve goals. We have high expectations for our employees—and for ourselves—to be a great place to work.

    Pros

    Excellent Job Security.
    Great Pay for the educational requirement.
    Good benefits and Company Perks.
    Stock Performance is Stellar although stock option rewards are decreasing as stock becomes more valuable.
    Excellent culture and values for the company overall.
    Excellent Pipeline for future growth and success.
    The company overall strongly values the employees as well as the work they do.
    Company is actively working to reduce or eliminate the things listed in the "Cons" section as well as improve and expand overall benefits and compensation.

    Cons

    Many areas are currently in the process of heavy growth and restructuring which can be quite tough on someone looking for great work/life balance. Your work schedule may change significantly with little warning.
    The Promotion and Bonus system has historically been very opaque and frustrating. Its difficult to know why some people were promoted or what any given person should work on to become promoted or get a good performance review.
    Senior management is well vetted and high caliber. However lower and middle management was drawn from a small pool of candidates while the company was still small, and is extreme hit or miss.....less hit more miss.
    The workplace/office politics can quickly get quite ridiculous, mostly due to the previously listed con but also due to the low average age of the employees in this young, rapidly growing company. Stay focused on your goals in life, your job, the company, and the patients.

    Advice to Management

    Overall continue pushing the improvements that are currently in the works and maintain what is already being done well. Vet management at all levels thoroughly and require lower and maybe even middle management to attend trainings on how to manage people.
