    Pros

    Most are smart ambitious people. Salaries generally competitive (excluding retirement). Great discovery and pipeline.

    Cons

    Long hours. Management’s way or the highway. Retirement match. Sometimes maybe people are too ambitious and step on others on their way up.

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

    Pros

    Good canteen. On site gym. Nothing else really.

    Cons

    Harsh dysfunctional culture. Either comply or you are shown the door. Dated & convoluted quality systems. Terrible management lacking empathy, supported by a tier of overly eager yes-men/women. Work overload. Don't expect any kind of work-life balance as working long hours is really the norm. Giving feedback is a one-way process e.g. annual appraisals reserved only for the managers. Politics and showing face prevail over hard work & common sense. Promotions handed to the wrong people, who always happen to be close to the management and not based on merit. Overall lack of experience leads to constant reworks and firefighting, as the majority of the workforce consists of inexperienced personnel, hired straight out of college. Depressed employees, managed through tactics of fear and intimidation. In general if personal and professional growth is your concern, you'd be better off looking elsewhere.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are really good. You get the opportunity to work making drugs that really do help people, and the culture reminds you of that. A focus on science and continuous improvement culture wise.

    Cons

    The culture tends toward perfectionism and sometimes it feels like you are walking around waiting for things to go wrong. Most people have been there less than two years, so there's a lot of opportunity for growth but also you are thrown in a little bit and are considered a veteran BPS at like 6 months on the job. Work life balance is a bit rough at times, long hours and being unsure when you get off of work has been common in my experience

    I worked at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    - Salary is OK, but for the hours worked not worth it - Bonus is good - Some good people try to work there, but leave due do the management - Benefits are OK, PTO not so much, again, unless you are a director and above

    Cons

    - Toxic culture - PROCUREMENT in particular, but in other areas as well -Micromanagement from mid-management. Managers are too scared to do the right thing, or will do the VPs bidding. If they don't they will get waled to the door. -Egotistical /Vindictive/Evil managers -Older veterans of company act like they own the damn company. No Regeneron 5 - we have always done it that way. Please don't try to innovate, you will be smacked down because of it - If your manager does something unfair to you, don't go to HR. You will get turned over to the VP, and that is the kiss of death, you will be labeled a malcontent and shown the door, regardless of how hard you work -Differential treatment towards employees - VP's pets, that meet a certain "criteria" - No Career advancement, they just hire form the outside, and tell you how dumb you are - No work/life balance, except for the upper management. If they see you working long hours, you are told to work smarter, not harder, the ultimate insult. - Systems do not work or don't work well together. Lots of manual process and workarounds. - Don't get lured in by the Stock options, they are now worthless. If you are there more than 10 years, you are a millionaire. Have's and have not's.
