    Pros

    Growing company with lots of opportunities for personal growth. Good work-life balance. Great location-only 50 minutes away from NYC. Great facility.

    Cons

    Research associate career track could be improved. Regeneron has more levels for research associate before they can become a manager, compared to peer companies, this is a disadvantage for research associates.

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

    Pros

    The company has grown rapidly and dramatically in a short time period. The outlook and potential of Regeneron is extremely great, however, nothing in the Biotech industry is guaranteed. Regular celebrations are held to boost employee morale. On sight gym. Stock options are often granted as part of yearly compensation package. Robust pipeline.

    Cons

    Mediocre salary and benefits. Located in an extremely high cost of living area. Relatively high turnover. Low ceiling to hit. Career advancement is slow to impossible after reaching a certain level. Bonuses are low compare to similar companies. 401K is matched in stock options. Work/life balance is highly variable between departments and managers. There is a potential for a catastrophic failure of the company or a take over by a bigger fish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create an atmosphere where individuals are given a path for sustainable career development and growth. Don't forget about the little guys, they are the foundation of the company, the people who do the work. I see a lot of indifference/ambivalence towards employee turnover. There is a reason why people leave. Regeneron provides a great platform as a training ground for moving onto somewhere else where there are better opportunities in salary/benefits and for career advancement.

    I have been working at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals

    Pros

    Company is on the rise, not declining or consolidating like the bigger companies. Company has a lot of money with which to do great research. Constantly developing new technologies and new methods.

    Cons

    Pay is average of other drug companies. If company is so great, like its board says it is, then pay should be better. Hard to recruit good candidates at mediocre and non-competitive salaries. Main site is in Tarrytown, NY, a very expensive place to live near. Non-mangers' accomplishments often go unnoticed by higher management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay should be increased if you want to recruit top talent.

    Pros

    They care about the happiness of their staff more than any other company I have heard of.

    Cons

    As with any company, they sometimes seem to overwork some of the permanent people.

    My summer internship with Regeneron was very useful and fulfilling.

    I worked at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals

    Pros

    As far as summer internships go, Regeneron's is top notch. The pay is very good for a college student, and there are many opportunities to work with other students.

    Cons

    There was a lot of focus on the work and the lab needs to lighten up a bit. Even though the group was easy to talk to, they were too uptight about some issues.
