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

    Pros

    Great environment of very smart people. Does well to bridge the gap between science and business. Highly motivated, modern environment.

    Cons

    Tasks may be monotonous at times, though exciting at other times. Beyond banter and lighthearted fun, business side folks may seem cold and aloof, though very infrequently.

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

    Pros

    Work closely with manager. Very useful in gaining research experience in the lab for undergrads. Good work life balance and fun intern class. Weekly events to help interns further themselves professionally.

    Cons

    Social bond among intern class is entirely up to us. Many labs and departments only have one intern so it can be overwhelming as the only non-full-time employee there.

    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 worked at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals

    Pros

    A convenient location for employees who live in Westchester

    Cons

    Regeneron has too many layers of management, whose titles are not only meaningless, but fictional. While those managers may be educated in the field of science, they have no sense of business acumen. Those employees who choose to engage themselves in the game of office politics will do well. Those workers with high morals and work ethic will remain at the bottom, only to have more work put on them, in addition their own, with no thanks or validation...their supervisors and managers will take the bows.
    In instances of supervisor/employee conflict, and there is much at Regeneron, the employee can not count on support from Human Resources, the managers and supervisors are always right, even if they are at fault.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the endless layers of meaningless managers and supervisors, and start running a business. It would behoove those in upper management to pay attention to the health of their employees, who are under extreme stress, and take the time to listen to their real needs and wants.

    I worked at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals

    Pros

    They do give their permanent employees a lot; don't bother temping there & thinking you will get your foot in the door.

    Cons

    The managers are totally incompetent. They seem to be reluctant to clean house if you have been there for a while. They just move them around laterally throughout different departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop using temporary employees unless you would actually like to hire them as permanent employees. These people see all Regeneron employees getting these wonderful benefits and are left out. Does this seem like a good idea? You have a lot of angry people. Watch the managers more carefully and don't be afraid to get rid of underperforming managers. Watch the technical training department very carefully.
