    Pros

    Made up of talented, dedicated and hardworking people who shares corporate goal and strives to be the best in the industry

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    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

    Pros

    Regeneron is one of the few biotech/pharma companies that stays true to science. I am seriously impressed with the culture at Regeneron. Everyone their loves what they do and is serious about translating scientific findings into new therapies. Even the senior management team at Regeneron all have a proven track record in academia and continue to ensure that the company's work contributes towards the greater good of the scientific and healthcare community.

    Cons

    The headquarters in Tarrytown is a bit far from NYC (30 min drive). Not the worst commute in the world, but would be ideal if its location was closer to the city.

    Pros

    Small company feel for such a big and growing company. You really feel like you are contributing to the project as a whole.

    Cons

    Sometime inter-department communications was lacking and requests where last minute.


  7. Phenomenal Company

    Pros

    Unbelievable talent, Tremendous opportunity for top talent to carve out their niche. Smart leadership running the company...scientists, not bankers. You can feel it in the culture.

    Cons

    Little coordination across divisions/departments but getting better.

    Pros

    Lots of cool stuff going on and really friendly co workers. I got exposure to many different parts of the company which was a cool experience.

    Cons

    My only real complaint was that at times it seemed like things ran into each other a little, almost like it was growing faster than it could determine it's needs

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what you are doing. Keeping science at the core if the company makes a great culture

    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.

    Pros

    If you were around long enough and were one of the favorites you got stock options. If you are lazy and incompetent (there are plenty here) you will have a lifetime of coasting as management is incapable of dealing with poor performers, particularly in R&D.

    Cons

    Senior management clings on to the delusion that we believe in the bogus Regeneron 5. They even brought back the fossil cheerleader responsible for all of the meaningless clichés. Good ideas only originate with George, all other contributions are ruthlessly belittled. No bureaucracy, you have to be crazy, just take a look at IT. As for that's the way we've always done is the wrong answer, try being a new employee with experience and good ideas of how the company needs to change, you come to accept that there is only one way, the Regeneron way and the company is too arrogant and political to listen to better ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Burn the Regeneron 5 at the next Red Nose Day.
