    I have been working at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful people to work with, who are very committed to bringing forth a great product. Lost of fun and they try to keep the work/life balance a priority.

    Cons

    Growing too fast - not enough space to accommodate new hires. Long hours are expected, so while you have potential for some good overtime pay, burnout is possible.

    Advice to Management

    Look to what areas need the most help and focus there. Many areas are lacking and this will eventually lead to problems in production.

    Pros

    Good payment. Good working environment and benefits like ice cream trucks every week and summer parties.

    Cons

    It's growing really fast so there is limited office space and equipment for new employees. New buildings are under construction so this will be overcome soon.

    Able to still learn new things while on the job, very fast moving and dynamic environment. Great coworkers and morale everybody seems happy. Great teamwork but a lot of dinosaurs not doing much but earning the big salaries

    Cons

    Growing Pains, bureucracry on the rise, endless and waste of time. Need to streamline their R&D a lot of disconnection among the groups. Terrible location for commuters.

    I worked at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    Decent benefits, average salary, great stock option, abundance of training, many opportunities to learn various aspects of engineering, state of art lab, variety of projects, opportunities to visit different vendors and manufacturing site and learn the process, flexible time, talented and innovative team

    Cons

    many layers of management, unorganized structure, unprofessional and at time inappropriate behavior, lack of clear vision from the upper management, lack of communication to the team from upper management, mid level management do not nurture the talent neither provide essential direction and feedback on the reports performance, the engineers carry most of the weight of the team, personal issues get in way of decision making

    Advice to Management

    create a better place for collaboration and teamwork, encourage creativity, have a more open flow of communication between upper management down to employees, create a more respectful environment that encourages collaboration and compromises, hire more competent technical managers to lead the team of engineers, motivate your team to do great work and lead by example

    I have been working at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, nice co-workers, good pay.

    Cons

    Lack of communication among departments, management needs to communicate more between each other and with their employees. Way too much paperwork for small changes. No organization when it comes to training schedule or what you are supposed to be focusing on. Not a lot of help learning how to do things.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate. Help your employees. Organize trainings and delegate responsibilities.

    Large company with a small company mindset. The company is growing faster than the culture or people is allowing it to.

    Don't be afraid of change and new ideas for doing things. Look to learn from current industry trends instead of going the familiar route
