    Pros

    Growing company with lots of opportunities for personal growth. Good work-life balance. Great location-only 50 minutes away from NYC. Great facility.

    Cons

    Research associate career track could be improved. Regeneron has more levels for research associate before they can become a manager, compared to peer companies, this is a disadvantage for research associates.

    I think regeneron is a wonderful company, but with all places its all about whom you work for, which was my case.

    Pros

    They do give their permanent employees a lot; don't bother temping there & thinking you will get your foot in the door.

    Cons

    The managers are totally incompetent. They seem to be reluctant to clean house if you have been there for a while. They just move them around laterally throughout different departments.

    Advice to Management

    Stop using temporary employees unless you would actually like to hire them as permanent employees. These people see all Regeneron employees getting these wonderful benefits and are left out. Does this seem like a good idea? You have a lot of angry people. Watch the managers more carefully and don't be afraid to get rid of underperforming managers. Watch the technical training department very carefully.

    Pros

    Company is on the rise, not declining or consolidating like the bigger companies. Company has a lot of money with which to do great research. Constantly developing new technologies and new methods.

    Cons

    Pay is average of other drug companies. If company is so great, like its board says it is, then pay should be better. Hard to recruit good candidates at mediocre and non-competitive salaries. Main site is in Tarrytown, NY, a very expensive place to live near. Non-mangers' accomplishments often go unnoticed by higher management.

    Advice to Management

    Pay should be increased if you want to recruit top talent.

    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 Management

    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.

    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.

    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 Management

    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.
