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

    Pros

    There is good science behind every project. It has a very scientific driven leadership. They have an exciting pipeline and great potential to keep growing

    Cons

    I was surprise to see that it is actually a conservative company in many aspects, with a risk averse culture. Maybe now that is financially more stable this may change

    Pros

    Brilliant business model, highly educated workforce, dynamic approach to the discovery and research of molecules.

    Cons

    No training, difficult chains of command, disorganized, big personalities, adversarial attitude between departments, little room for a learning curve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put together an immersive training program, make sure that you make people aware of their responsibilities when they begin their role, organize your hierarchy in such a way as to get synergy between functional groups, make sure that you are aware that there is an adversarial atmosphere between functional departments.

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

    Pros

    - Stock options, but if you got into the company early.
    - Company Pipeline.
    - Organization Stability

    Cons

    - Employees are treated worthless here. If you go try to discuss your future here, you will be told that there are far too many other high priority things the HR is busy with or you will be asked to find your opportunities inside or outside the company.
    - The company is playing catchup without a clear plan. They want to accomplish everything all at once. The Management is trying to accomplish too many initiatives without caring about how well they are implemented.
    - Extremely stressful environment with little respect for people.
    - Average benefits with low pay. The company feels that they are not in NYC, so they can get away with lower salaries. Beware and please note that the location has high cost of living.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Hiring is of no use if you end up driving away your current talent (attrition).
    - Lack of decision making and accountability results in projects taking extremely long to implement.
    - Micromanagement needs to go away. This is no longer the same small company it used to be.
    - Your employees deserve higher base pay.
    - One of the most horrible appraisal process in the corporate world.
    - Lacking employee development plan.

    Pros

    Great science drives the company, good scientists, good atmosphere, hard workers, nice people, all people working for the patients, growing company

    Cons

    Very manager dependent, some departments & situations are not good. May be hard to move within Company. Promotion processes are not transparent, at times they do not seem fair/merit based. Rating system is arbitrary. HR department is not supportive of employees or middle managers at all; they play silly games. Pay is on the low side for pharma industry. Commercial group is becoming more influential in the science.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please stay true to the scientific and patient focussed mission. Commercial success will follow good science and medicine, commercial must not lead.
