      Overall great place to work

      May 7, 2021 - Clinical Study Specialist in Tarrytown, NY

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      A lot of realty talented people. Some managers are very supportive of their direct reports. Very collaborative environment on all levels; not hierarchical. Potential for career growth and promotion. Competitive compensation and good benefits package. Flexibility to work from home depending on the manager.

      Cons

      Like any company with rapid growth there are frequently changing processes and procedures. They hire too many temps who end up fiercely competing for the same perm positions. Stock benefits are not much of a benefit if you were hired in the past 5 years or so. Lack of space at the Tarrytown office.

      Good pay

      Pros

      By NY/NJ standards, Regeneron pays well. High base, consistent annual salary increase typically 3-5% (more for some), bonus always exceeds target % (personal + company combined).

      Cons

      Sr Management "I'm right, your wrong" attitude sets a negative, demoralizing ethos. If you don't work on certain key brands, work is often not recognized or appreciated. Efforts toward DE&I didn't change Sr Management mentality. A big pharma company that is still trying to pass itself off as small pharma. For an innovative company, no innovative thinking about post-COVID return. Management still taking about returning to the normal day in the office with face to face meetings, rather than offering new ways of working moving forward. Limited opportunities for advancement in certain groups. Yes-men and nepotism are common.

      Great Place to work with a few pitfalls

      Apr 16, 2021 - Commercial in Sleepy Hollow, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      This company really takes care of their people and it feels like they care.

      Cons

      Requirements for promotion are not written or available which leaves your upward and lateral mobility in the hands of your supervisor. If you're well liked and/or know the right individual, you will advance. If not, good luck. DE&I needs to be better, especially in senior leadership.

      Great Work Environment With Intense Work Expectations

      Apr 17, 2021 - Co-Op in Tarrytown, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The people at Regeneron are the best. Everyone is kind, understanding, and always willing to lend a helping hand or take a minute to explain something you may not understand.

      Cons

      There is a lot of work to do and even co-ops are expected to complete a good share of the workload. However, co-ops are treated as Full Time Employees, so they get to learn great time management and organizational skills.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Inclusive, innovative, continuously improving company that puts safety first. Individual and groups efforts are recognized and reward.

      Cons

      Due to the fast paced work environment you need to be able to quickly adapt to new tasks and situations. That environment may not be suited to all.

      Equal Opportunity to a Fault

      Mar 27, 2021 - Process Scientist 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Regeneron as a company is driven completely by metrics. Every candidate is on an equal playing field for a promotion as technical skills and completed work serve as the primary metric. There is very little value placed on soft skills, but this situation means that Regeneron is by definition an equal opportunity employer.

      Cons

      The company is growing rapidly, but most of senior management has been there for an extended period of time. As a result, there is not a lot of space for vertical growth. Additionally, because Regeneron is so metric driven and places little emphasis on soft skills, management is not highly skilled at "managing". A lot of senior management are simply individuals who have amassed a large amount of technical information . The best managers in terms of driving the development of employees are not always in charge.

      No Professional Growth Development

      Feb 1, 2021 - Senior Manager in Rensselaer, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Regeneron in terms of benefits is great company. Great bonus, good stock options and multiple perks. Flexible and adaptable to employee needs.

      Cons

      - Too Political - Executives have a open voice in their political views that could influence employees on what we should vote - No professional growth if you don't belong to the "popular group". Leadership behave like in high school that if you don't follow the popular leaders you will not get any opportunity and they put you in a corner. - A lot of talk , videos, training, articles of inclusion and diversity but no action, the same people are the ones that gets the opportunities and promotion, the same "popular group". - Department senior leaders behaving like kids, with the mentally of I do it better than you and a lot of blame on others. - Be little the hard working employees because the work based on truth, transparency and integrity but senior leadership believe and goes with the employees that treat others less. - encourage employee to apply for internal jobs but hiring manager asked you to take another position at the same level even tough you have all and above the qualifications and requirements of the job description. - and a lot of stab behind the back behavior, no "teamwork" and a lot of gossiping of others.
