    I have been working at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    People 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.

    Cons

    On-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 ManagementAdvice

    Have sexual harassment refreshers periodically, please. Everything else is very positive, and should continue as-is.

    Pros

    Upwardly bound company. Information on significant decisions are shared with employees on a regular basis. Opportunity to communicate questions / concerns available to Sr. Management readily available.

    Cons

    Fairness is weak during review process. Must be with company 12 months before able to apply for other positions within company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mid-level Management should be required to take HR training and learn the skills necessary to interact and guide subordinates effectively, professionally, and fairly.

    I have been working at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Young, energetic atmosphere. They truly believe if that treat the workers well, they'll do a great job. Open to suggestions and innovation; truly an organization that will continue to improve as it ages.

    Cons

    It is a bio-pharma company; you work with some hazardous chemicals. The company provides all the safe-guards they can, but ultimately it is the responsibility of the worker to be careful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing!
