It is everything you make it to be...

Process Development Engineer (Current Employee)
Tarrytown, NY (US)

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

ProsGreat place to start a career in that you get a LOT of experience.

ConsTimelines and projects can be stacked on top of one another causing a significant amount of stress and long days.

Advice to Senior ManagementI find that senior management is not connected to my work. I would like to have a greater amount of exposure to them.

Great Atmosphere! Flexible, Smart people

Desktop Support/IT (Former Employee)
Tarrytown, NY (US)

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

Pros-Intelligent Employees
- friendly colleagues
- good place to start your career

ConsHR is HORRIBLE! Entire IT helpdesk level 1 and 2 is outsourced with C3i which is the worst to work for as you get absolutely no career development or advancement and the pay is well below average. i started as an Intern and then was brought with c3i (i only did it for the experience) . Do not make a career here, take what you learn and move to somewhere better fast. Was promised reviews and never received them. There was only one IT manager that actually recognized the outsourced employees for their hard work and truthfully he should be in charge or IT

Advice to Senior ManagementThis may or may not be on the horizon but the entire IT dept needs a makeover starting from the top down

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great place to intern

Summer Intern (Former Employee)
Tarrytown, NY (US)

I worked at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals as an intern for more than 3 years

ProsI had great supervisors who gave me interesting projects and didn't just make me do grunt work, but they weren't slavedrivers either.

There are tons of summer interns and lots of social events, so it was a great environment.

Competitive pay as well. I was very satisfied.

ConsNone really, but I think the experience really depends on the supervisor

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Disappointing place to foster a long-term career.

Process Development Engineer (Current Employee)
Tarrytown, NY (US)

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

Pros-Intelligent employees
-Free gym
-Younger employees at the lowest level, easy to make friends

Cons-Horrible management - they will lie on your reviews and HR will not care despite you bringing them physical proof. Many managers are managers only because they have a PhD, not because they have proven any leadership skills.
-Some managers discriminate against their female scientists and HR will not do a thing
-Despite acting like they encourage internal transfers, it's not true; you won't even get a "thanks, but no thanks"
-ZERO career development opportunities - a minion is a minion, that is, until you leave. It's a decent place to start, take your experience, and RUN.
-The company works their employees into the ground and pay nothing until they can't take it anymore - then act like they just were't good enough to hack it when they all quit.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide actual career development opportunities and career paths. Hire managers who genuinely care about being leaders, not just someone because they have a PhD. Management training and sensitivity training should be required. Stop being so arrogant and believing that this is the best place to work, your turnover rate says otherwise.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
