    I have been working at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    First place I have ever worked that cares about the well being of their people. We get barbecues, breakfast every Friday, a decent holiday party every year and the week after Christmas off. If you have an idea to improve your group or department it's encouraged. Plenty of room to grow as you gain experience.

    Cons

    Training and communication are still the biggest issues that need tackling on all levels.

    I have been working at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free food from time to time and nothing more.

    Cons

    Favoritism
    No corporate structure
    Indecisive management
    Micromanagement
    Inefficient management style
    Old veterans of company are FREELOADERS
    Innovation and new ideas are trashed
    No career development plans in place
    Time spent at company is rewarded even if it's time wasted (sad and pathetic!)

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at your old veterans that are screwing up your "REGN" culture & making it difficult for new and innovative people to work & bring REGN back on track....if you don't, company is a sinking ship of high egotistical veterans of the company.

    I worked at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Viewed as a whole there are really no Pro's to working in the type of environment Regeneron currently offers.

    Cons

    Cut-throat and stressful work environment, incompetent middle management and HR, too many PhD's who have no idea what is going on or how to do their jobs (hence the cut-throat culture).

    Advice to Management

    Problems should be addressed when brought to management and HR's attention instead of being covered up by the legal department. Be honest with yourselves, and expect honesty and integrity from the people you select to lead. Covering up fraud perpetrated by foreign nationals in middle management because you're afraid of how it will look to the general public when the information gets out undermines your own integrity.

    I worked at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    Benefits, salary, great pipeline, great peers at the shop floor level

    Cons

    Is a very stressful environment in all the wrong ways. Stress is expected in a highly regulated environment, but most of the stress at this company (Rensselaer site) is created by it's SLT, mostly from his leader who is a bully and not respectful to people followed by his "mini me" at the SLT and JLT

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with respect, value your employees for what they bring to the table and not for not be willing to give up their integrity and just do what the "Olympus" want them to do. Walk the talk....right now the talking of employees who worked or are currently working at the Rensselaer site is not aligned with the wrongful leadership acts.
