Regeneron Pharmaceuticals – Why Work For Us?

At Regeneron, we believe in the power of original thinking. Our company is built on breakthrough ideas; which is why we foster a spirit of openness, and strive to inspire from within. We are collaborative by design and driven by curiosity. Each one of us plays an active role in transforming people’s lives through our work. Regeneron’s people make us who we are, and we are truly more than a company – we’re a community.

Simply put, we’re a tight-knit group working together to change the world.

Regeneron’s organized chaos is balanced by an entrepreneurial spirit and a comprehensive support system that encourages employees to disrupt the status quo.

The “Regeneron 5” defines our culture – key characteristics identified by our employees that have driven our past successes and will continue to help us change the world. Even if everything about Regeneron changes, the Regeneron 5 remain as guiding principles.


We believe great science leads to new and innovative drugs, which can improve people's lives, grow our company and fund more great science.


Regeneron has very high standards for hiring people.  If you are talented enough to work here, then you join a team of dedicated and talented people from all walks of life.  We work together to achieve our goals; while individual effort is rewarded our true success comes when we work together as a team.


No matter your role here, you will be expected to strive for excellence in your field.  You will never stop learning and you will continously be sharing your knowledge with others.


We will not settle for the way things have always been done.  At Regeneron, we are willing to see the world in our own way, and were always looking for new and better ways to do things.


Successful companies require organization and processes to function effectively. We have them too, but we work hard to ensure that process and organization at Regeneron do not stand in the way of conducting great science and developing successful drugs.

We need outstanding people with the skills and talents to help us grow, but who want to work in a company where certain important things will not change: the focus on ethical behavior, on science as the key driver of the business, on the team not the individual, on embracing the challenge of encouraging speed while maintaining quality and never compromising on safety. We need people who want to find new and better ways to translate science into medicine. We are looking for people to create the future we can all believe in.



We know that all great ideas – ideas that push boundaries and lead to great discoveries – start with our employees.

That’s why we invest in creating a work experience that allows everyone at Regeneron to think big. We do this through our Total Rewards @ Regeneron Program. It’s a suite of programs and resources that ensure your physical, financial and emotional well-being, as well as your potential to share in Regeneron’s success.

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


    Yearly bonus and raise is never disappointing and a rarity for most local companies. There are also plenty of opportunities for advancement for those who are motivated, driven, and a little tenacious.


    It's a stressful environment because all employees are held to an extremely high standard. This can be exhausting some days, but if you're committed and up for the challenge, it can shape you for the better.

    Advice to Management

    Remember we're all human.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (New York, NY) in May 2017.


    There were three rounds of interviews. First, an interview with HR asking basic questions, followed by a virtual behavioral interview which was submitted via video. Finally, a behavioral interview with a hiring manager over the phone.
