    Pros

    People really want to get their work done, and done right. Great company culture of integrity. Lots of leftover free food from meetings. Friendly people. Rapid growth rate.

    Cons

    On-boarding needs to be streamlined. The occasional mild sexual harassment case goes unreported, but this is not the norm, and seems to be concentrated in a few individuals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have sexual harassment refreshers periodically, please. Everything else is very positive, and should continue as-is.

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

    Pros

    Good ideas from many smart people. Benefits are good (same as other biotechs/pharmas I've worked).

    Cons

    It feels like you can't do anything without getting management approval. RAs, admins, and other support staff are just support not truly valued members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let us do our work. We may not have MDs, JDs, or PhDs but we actually do know things. Plan a little better and give us some guidance but don't micromanage. You don't have to yell at us to get better work just treat us as peers and listen to what we are saying.

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

    Pros

    The pipeline is exciting and the people are friendly.

    Cons

    The company processes are lacking and communication between groups is poor. The management cares more about getting products into the clinic then making processes more efficient and the lives of employees easier. The company also has an over-inflated opinion of itself and is not open to process improvement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage innovation, listen to new ideas, and facilitate rather than stifle communication. It would be nice if the company lived its stated core values (Regeneron 5) rather than the values being a running joke. It's amazing how fast we can move drugs through the pipeline but how slow we are when it comes to addressing employee concerns.

    Pros

    Upwardly bound company. Information on significant decisions are shared with employees on a regular basis. Opportunity to communicate questions / concerns available to Sr. Management readily available.

    Cons

    Fairness is weak during review process. Must be with company 12 months before able to apply for other positions within company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mid-level Management should be required to take HR training and learn the skills necessary to interact and guide subordinates effectively, professionally, and fairly.

    I have been working at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - The science is definitely innovative
    - Higher management puts effort in getting to know employees
    - Fast-paced environment
    - Relative ease of communication

    Cons

    - For the physical amount of energy put into projects/experiments, little recognition is given
    - Obvious cultural divide
    - Learning curve is expected to be met quite quickly while hitting a ceiling is just as fast
    - Lack of respect for time
    - Fast growth of company seems to be taking a hard hit in terms of program management capabilities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - For some people, talking in a different language may make it easier to communicate, but there has to be a limit (i.e. managers conversing in a different language to certain employees does not seem professional)
    - Need to spread projects better and create more realistic time frames instead of projects assigned yesterday due the day before yesterday - address respect for a person's time
    - Accountability for projects that require higher priority (i.e. group members regardless of seniority should be held accountable and held to higher expectations)

    I have been working at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    The salaries were recently increased in the research area. The facility is nice and reasonably new.

    Cons

    The review system and promotions result in a lot of negativity. The point system really relates to how many years in that position rather than how well you work. The promotions are mostly done by time in the position also meaning that those that perceive themselves as hard-workers get de-motivated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ways to identify harder workers or those who go above and beyond would improve moral.
    A change in the promotion system is required.
