    Pros

    Exciting place to work with the current pipeline. Growing very rapidly. Overall morale is high. Intelligent, hard working team players. Good work life balance, quarterly parties.

    Cons

    Compensation poor especially considering cost of living of the area. With all the rapid growth there is a lot of pressure with deadlines. Only been here a year or so and am a bit unclear for career advancement/growth.

    Advice to Management

    Need to work on compensation since the sentiment is that people will start jumping ship to big pharma when they start hiring again.

    Pros

    Scientifically, Regeneron is an exciting place to work. Good ideas get support, even if they shake things up, and maveric ideas are always considered, and even encouraged. Regeneron combines the best aspects of academia (scientific curiosity, creativity and scientific rigour) with the best aspects of the biotech industry (solving real problems with immediate impact).

    Cons

    Sometimes the amount of independence translates into a lack of guidance, and the flexibility of the company can seem disorganized. Also, compensation and benefits are somewhat below industry standards.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication, at the management level and between departments.

    I worked at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals as an intern (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I had great supervisors who gave me interesting projects and didn't just make me do grunt work, but they weren't slavedrivers either.

    There are tons of summer interns and lots of social events, so it was a great environment.

    Competitive pay as well. I was very satisfied.

    Cons

    None really, but I think the experience really depends on the supervisor

    Pros

    Great place to start a career in that you get a LOT of experience.

    Cons

    Timelines and projects can be stacked on top of one another causing a significant amount of stress and long days.

    Advice to Management

    I find that senior management is not connected to my work. I would like to have a greater amount of exposure to them.

    I have been working at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility in work schedule, on-site perks like parties, massages, gym, and frozen yogurt.

    Cons

    Base salaries are not competitive to industry, however equity bonus is nice (as long as the stock price continues to grow at least)

    Advice to Management

    Try to be ahead of the compensation curve, rather than trying to catch up to industry.
