    I have been working at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company has grown rapidly and dramatically in a short time period. The outlook and potential of Regeneron is extremely great, however, nothing in the Biotech industry is guaranteed. Regular celebrations are held to boost employee morale. On sight gym. Stock options are often granted as part of yearly compensation package. Robust pipeline.

    Cons

    Mediocre salary and benefits. Located in an extremely high cost of living area. Relatively high turnover. Low ceiling to hit. Career advancement is slow to impossible after reaching a certain level. Bonuses are low compare to similar companies. 401K is matched in stock options. Work/life balance is highly variable between departments and managers. There is a potential for a catastrophic failure of the company or a take over by a bigger fish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create an atmosphere where individuals are given a path for sustainable career development and growth. Don't forget about the little guys, they are the foundation of the company, the people who do the work. I see a lot of indifference/ambivalence towards employee turnover. There is a reason why people leave. Regeneron provides a great platform as a training ground for moving onto somewhere else where there are better opportunities in salary/benefits and for career advancement.

    Becoming Big Pharma

    I have been working at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have worked here for over 3 years in the commercial organization. Regeneron has a great overall atmosphere. There are a lot of parties, educational events and employee benefits. It's obvious that senior leadership wants their employees to be happy. Because it is a smaller company you have the opportunity to take on new responsibilities you wouldn't have a chance to try at a larger company.

    Cons

    The review process is demoralizing, opaque, with arbitrary numbers and ratings, and goals pushing you to do more and more work outside your job scope every year (without any reward, physical or moral). There are no standards for getting promotions. If you have a difficult manager there is no remedy as HR always seems to side with management. 'Managing up' is a daily reality.

    The rapid growth of the last few years has brought in many individuals from Big Pharma which are quickly changing the company culture. Plenty of hiring for management and up positions. Everyone wants to be chief not indian. I.T. is the hardest department to work with; chronically understaffed, all the good people leave, and help comes at a glacial pace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    360 degree reviews for management. If you're a bad manager you shouldn't be one, no matter how many years of experience you have. Recognize and reward hard workers by their solid achievements rather than personality and 'who you know'. Completely overhaul the review process. Hire from other business fields and away from Big Pharma for new and fresh ideas. Create a way for the less influential employees to have their voices heard such as an electronic comments box for HR.

    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.

    I worked at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    A very fast paced company that is producing many great drugs. Regeneron has achieved a lot of success in a very short amount of time, and that cannot be done without its great employees.

    Cons

    The only con I would say is that the location is in Tarrytown NY, which requires some traveling every day.

    Pros

    Great culture, smart people, beautiful campus

    Cons

    no communication, HR Department seems highly disorganized and compartmentalized, long periods of non contact during hiring process, recruiter turn over

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The HR department needs to get on the same page. Temps are doing 90% of the hiring which is odd when they are the first line of contact to perspective new hires. It's weird for someone to say, "you should work here even though I don't."
