    I have been working at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    Their eye drug Eylea made billions last year so the Regeneron finally has some cash to bring their salaries to industry average. It has a flat structure with authentic people and management are directly involved in the actual work other than politics.

    In recent year the company has been trying to build a casual and innovative culture.

    Cons

    It is slowly transitioning from a small biotech to a mid-sized company but the managers are still running their departments like a startup and do things "their own ways". Some managers lack people skills and were only promoted their current position because of their seniority.

    In some departments lower level employes do not have offices and cubicles and are asked to sit next to small tables next to each other. Some sit in half-walled cubicles with managers siting in the same rooms making you feel being constantly watched.

    Company tries to build a innovative and fun culture from the top but is not very well executed at department level because they are run by senior management who still do things the old ways.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is physically expanding and the late-stage pipelines are getting more complex. You can no longer run the company in the pre-Elyea way and need to bring top-tier people immediately from the industry to run the departments like the rest of the industry does.

    But in order to attract high caliber people you need to have good infrastructures where people feel safe, trusted, and comfortable; good compensations to survive the high cost of living in Westchester, and modern management philosophies that make each person feel respected and valued.

    I have been working at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    The company is growing fast.

    Cons

    Management is not the best. It seems that in the research field is hard to advance without a PhD. RAs are not treated well or given credit for their work. They should have some kind of mandatory training for managers so they can learn how to interact with people; they don't get management or social skills from a PhD.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's hard to advance in the research field.

    I worked at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Small company allows you have a good working relationship. Lines of communication are more open. The company also provides a great learning experience with presentations from colleagues on different topics.

    Cons

    Resources can sometimes be an issue since it is a small company and for some projects work is outsourced.

    Good Culture, Vibrant and Helpful Atmosphere

    I worked at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Interned at the Oncology & Angiogenesis Department, loved the intellectual atmosphere of the group and how nice everyone was. They also managed to retain the active startup culture despite having grown to a large company with 1000+ employees.

    Cons

    The intern program seemed a bit unstructured, although I imagine it would get better very fast with a wonderfully responsive Intern Recruitment head.

    I have been working at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Regeneron is very good at making you feel like a part of the "family".

    Cons

    If you are not upper management, your desk is typically in a large room filled with coworkers of a similar level. It can be quite distracting at times.

    Current Employee - Senior Staff Scientist in Tarrytown, NY (US)

    I have been working at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The company expanded dramatically in the recent years and is expected to have a bright future. The employees enjoy good salary, benefits and job security. The company also has an overall friendly and flexible working environment, which encourages collaboration and innovation.

    Cons

    The promotion system is not ideal, which generated glass ceiling for a lot of senior titled researchers. This would compromise enthusiasm of some high-quality researches in a long run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention on rewarding hardworking, senior titled researchers who had outstanding performances yet not promotable by the current system. Maybe even modify the system.

    Former Employee - Research Intern in Tarrytown, NY (US)

    I worked at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals as an intern for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great mentors, plenty of academic, facility and financial resources, very fair pay, balanced work-life balance. HR is always planning events for interns and employees. Most scientists are very friendly and approachable. The company is also kind to its staff by providing free rides from the north white plains and tarrytown train stations in the morning and afternoon. Gym facilities and a discounted food court, offering quality food are also very nice!

    Cons

    Would be nice if interns had access to the gym facilities. The location is a bummer for young people, since there isn't much to do in suburban Tarrytown. There really isn't an option to eat-out (walking distance)...everything is take-out.
