    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”

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

    Pros

    Benefits aren't bad, especially health insurance.

    Cons

    The culture was very toxic in my opinion. Pushed to work very long hours for below average pay. Hours are glorified and rewarded with ice cream trucks and BBQs at work instead of encouraging a healthy work/life balance and increased pay. Clinical MFG department is a very young department and management has very little experience with actually managing people. They will make it very difficult for you to switch to better departments (especially if you want to switch to research in Tarrytown).
