    I worked at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - A great place to learn new things, work hard, and learn how to be independent - Great coworkers -Amazing scientific facilities - On-site Coffee Labs - LOTS of resources -- you're never pinching your pennies. It doesn't matter if something is very expensive, if it saves you time and effort, you can buy it - Lots of great company events -A VERY extravagant holiday party

    Cons

    - The work/life balance of RA's is abysmal. Lots of OT and even weekend work is expected - Scientists in the same group are extremely competitive with each other causing inefficient use of time/resources - Credit is not always given where it is due - 401k is only given with stocks which take 4 years to vest - Company reviews are arbitrary. Hitting all of your ambitious goals will leave you with a "medium." - Compensation is not as high as other competitors in the industry

    I have been working at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals

    Pros

    This is a great place to work if you want to collaboratively work with incredibly bright people! I learn so much every day from some of the brightest minds, and everyday is a new, exciting challenge.

    Cons

    Growing pains. The current organizational structure is probably insufficient for the amount coming through the pipeline. Management review of programs is a real bottleneck and the senior management are spread so thin that the quality of the review is often lacking. The SVPs will need to step back at some point, let go of some things, and delegate those reviews to others in a more decentralized system. No work-life balance whatsoever. Meetings from 8-5pm, so all your work is done outside those hours. Cannot hire fast enough to take on all the work. More people are desperately needed.

    I worked at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    good canteen, promotions happen really quickly

    Cons

    Fear and “do as I say not as I do” used as management tools. Promotions happen too quickly as so many people are leaving it means some people are in positions they aren’t qualified for. Constantly under staffed/training new hires and pushed to keep the same amount of working going. Could actually be a great place to work but a long way from it yet, and your only as good as your last mistake. If you really need a job you’ll get good experience of what not to do. Work life balance in all departments is the last priority. And the anxiety of constantly being monitored by cctv cameras wears you down, at a minimum there are 3 cameras looking at you at all times anywhere in the facility. Management still consider it a start up, which is used as an excuse for most of the non sensical double/triple jobbing that happens and poor work practices. Worrying amount of people leaving constantly for such a “great place to work”
