  1.  

    Good Culture, Vibrant and Helpful Atmosphere

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Secure, fun and exciting atmosphere but not perfect...

    Current Employee - Research Associate III  in  Tarrytown, NY (US)
    Current Employee - Research Associate III in Tarrytown, NY (US)

    I have been working at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    With the industry still contracting (ie Merck's recent layoffs) it is comforting to have peace of mind that we should be secure for the next few years with our recent success. Fun environment (lots of parties), great benefits (stock options are a huge plus even for those of us in lower positions), above average 401K and insurance, tuition reimbursement even increased. With recent success, salary is catching up to industry norms, I started ~4 years ago and felt fairly underpaid at the time, especially considering the cost of living, but since then the compensation has improved where I no longer consider it a con and it was a huge one to start.

    Cons

    Unclear direction for growth/advancement. RA's (non-Phds) generally have a rather define glass ceiling (RA V). In my group, not a lot of distinction between the levels (RA II vs RA V). Promotions are difficult to obtain. Position can be monotonous and unchallenging after time again due to lack of growth and increased roles/responsibilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more opportunities for growth, rather then bringing in outside applicants could a role be filled internally?

    Pros

    Emphasis on good science
    Good home/work balance
    Lots of encouragement by senior management
    Great benefits

    Cons

    Promotions are dependent on time worked rather than purely merit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions of individuals based on time worked rather than merit is a bit bad for morale
