    Pros

    Still small enough to feel like individual employees are making a difference, good benefits, and believe in what mission of the company and it's senior leadership

    Cons

    Slow/ambiguous career advancement, and small enough that many standard business practices/infrastructure are still not solidly formed. I can also feel the business culture changing as the company grows larger and attracts talent from other, larger pharma companies.

    Pros

    There are many pros to working here.
    -In certain areas there are still a few people doing the job and you can still innovate.
    -You are really helping patients and making a difference.
    -The company has a non traditional dress code, and the ability to work from home at times.
    -There are nice perks like free coffee and tea bar, beverages, and a cafeteria subsidy.
    -If the stock goes up again the stock plan is a great perk.

    Cons

    The major issue here is the deterioration of the culture. I've been here 7 years and what was originally here has disappeared. The intimacy and closeness with peers is gone, subsumed under a tidal wave of senior managers, associate directors, and executive directors out of big pharma. There are hundreds of directors now. People move from department to department in search of more money, power, title, etc (and often get it rather quickly with this method). Regeneron used to be a lean machine. A company of passionate multi-taskers who would innovate to get it done. Now it's full of bloat.

    Advice to Management

    Please make HR work for your employees instead of by default siding with management. Discourage hiring of contractors and outsourcing work. Seriously reign in unnecessary expenses. Use common sense.. we need workers not more delegators. 360 reviews. Your employees need to ask the difficult questions and forums are not good for this. Stop rewarding politicking and department hopping.

    Pros

    Great products. Local management is good. Sanofi partners locally are awesome...but corporate doesn't get it.

    Cons

    Struggling to define a positive culture, any culture. Much posturing by new sales employees initially sent a science based warped culture. Now the culture is somewhat shattered...limping along. Poor communication from the top.

    Advice to Management

    Senior leadership needs to communicate to sales staff more quickly & often. Seems like leadership wants to have two way dialogue but doesn't know how...there are classes for that...

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

    Pros

    - High growth organization
    - Stabilty
    - CEO/CSO are a great asset

    Cons

    - Poor HR engagement
    - Scientists and R&D folks are well taken care of. If you work in SG&A, you'd be treated like garbage
    - Growth and bonuses are based on who you know, how you know rather than skill
    - Recently updated their appraisal process to make it more vague, so that employees cannot figure out how they were rated and whether they received a good bonus or not
    - Low pay compared to the location. However if you are on the right side of favoritism, you could be filthy rich in no time
    - IT is the biggest hell hole. From leadership to vision, this is a problem area. If you have any overlap with IT, consider that you will never be able to accomplish your goals
    - Did I say, HR business partner is completely disengaged. If you leave the company they will be happy to let you go. My exit interview lasted 5 minutes. It further made me happy with my decision to move on

    Advice to Management

    - Value your employees
    - Fire all HR business partners. Reinstate a new organization
    - IT leadership needs to go through Anger Management classes
    - I do blame CEO/CSO to a large extent for being disconnected from SG&A organization's well being
    - Discussion with senior management about employee growth/opportunity should never lead to them directing employees to explore opportunities in other companies or organization. Clearly establishes how you value your high performing employees
    - Promotions and hierarchy in the organization can be granted per an Org's leader. Very poorly organized. Encourages demotivation and establishes leaders without skills
    - Westchester is a very expensive area. You need to understand the cost of living is as much as in NY. So stop lying to new employees that its not much different from NJ/CT/PA
