Production Worker (Current Employee) – Rensselaer, NY – June 28, 2016
Regeneron he reps are great at selling the company when they are making offers... But upon entering the group in which you work the forget very quickly who you are when questions and issues arise... Very very immature work force and very cliquey work environment...
Free phone free laptop ( a pro maybe in Y2k)
The freebies come with attached to a double edged sword
Facilities Engineering Intern (Former Employee) – Tarrytown, NY – May 9, 2016
This was a summer internship I had while I was home from school. They had an amazing work environment, very comfortable pay, and the nicest employees to work with. Being an intern, they challenged me with hard work and motivated me to want to do it and do it well. I learned a ton working there and I had a great time doing it.
Regeneron is a good employer, and a good place to work
Biotech Production Specialist III (Current Employee) – Rensselaer, NY – April 25, 2016
I have worked at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals for 3 years in the manufacturing department. The company is growing very quickly, has a very healthy culture, and is relatively flexible to the needs and wants of its workforce. They go out of their way to do numerous small events such as bringing ice cream trucks to the employees, and hosting some enjoyable year end holiday parties. I have greatly enjoyed my time working here, and consider myself fortunate to have started right after college.
The only thing to watch for is that in the manufacturing groups it is very easy to work 70-80+ hours a week. Overtime is freely given to all who want it, but sometimes the schedule and processes dictate very long continuous work times.
Lots of free events, good benefits, good people.
In manufacturing work weeks of 70-80+ hours are not uncommon.

Over hyped company due to rising stocks, poor management, stressful environment, learned absolutely nothing, coworkers all stressed out due to pressure, hardest part complete ignorance and arrogance of management
Sr. Device Development (Former Employee) – RENSSELAER – September 10, 2015
A rosey place for fresh outs. For some reason , managers there think this is a continuation of college. Layers and layers of titles with little results. No value for professionals. HR is terrible and is only concerned with recruitment activities at RPI (college). No respect for Mechanical engineers or Designers. Devices are all purchased overseas by Regeneron's partner/ Sanofi. Life Science majors are Project managers. ME's wind up being lab techs, running data day after day from a fixture set up in the lab. If you have a Medical Device experience, Stay away! This place is not for you!
Please note that good reviews in Indeed with this company are from Tarrytown , not Renessalaer site, and are usually done by Interns , Co-ops, or Fresh Outs, since they are catered to by Management.
Sr.DEVICE ENGINEER (Former Employee) – RENSSELAER – June 4, 2015
The company does NOT design, nor make any hardware devices so don't be fooled by the title "Device Development. These device development jobs are actually only lab tech jobs, testing and putting on excel spreadsheets the results of the tests that OTHER COMPANIES make and Regeneron fills with drug product. So if you are truly a device development engineer, don't come here, you will be quickly disappointed. STAY AWAY.
If you read all the other reviews, you will see that the good reviews are done by interns, coops and fresh outs which Regeneron thrives on, hence the phrase "Ignorance is Bliss". Professionals know better.
HR department is terrible. As a senior engineer, I couldn't get them to return my phone call about a job posting. AND SO YOU DON'T THINK IT 'S JUST ME COMPLAINING, MY BOSS CALLED AND THEY WOULDN'T RETURN HIS CALL EITHER. IMAGINE THAT......
Management is terrible at the site level. They are arrogant, non-caring and under qualified to be Managers. They were mostly science majors and promoted to Manager level with no training in Management.
If you are truly a device engineer, my best advise is try Boston, or northern NJ.
Sr Manager (Former Employee) – Rensselaer – May 29, 2015
Company preaches work life balance but if you perform any less than perfection, and don't work 10-12 hours a day, and be on call 24/7, you get fired. Rensselaer plant manager is a Lex Luther wannabe and puts the fear of God into every one, never mind that he is has legal troubles himself. Company has no idea how to compete with the larger companies for new product launches and relies on their overseas partners to bail them out. QA management is more focused on outside interests (horse stables) than putting in 8 hours of honest work. CEO needs to survey IOPS employees to see why turnover is so high
No job security and poor senior management at IOPS

facilities (Former Employee) – Rensselaer – April 23, 2015
Not pleased with management and the day to day changes. Regeneron was at one point a great place to work but once the company grew like it did its care for their employees has gone out the window. They give you bonuses but its in stock and it takes 4 years to vest. if you don't stay, you don't keep it. They give but there is always a catch.
Sr.DEVICE ENGINEER (Former Employee) – RENSSELAER – April 17, 2015
If you are just out of school come here! If not, stay home! Company favors the young and does little for seasoned professionals! Managers tend to be in their 20's- 30's with no experince, so the older employees have to train the majority of students there. A lot of focus on employee training, but lack of program focus! BASIC skills are not practiced, such as program management of individual projects, timing charts or deliverables, etc. There are layers and layers of manager titles with little results from them. Since it is a Pharmaceutical Company, there are many chemists and life science majors. As a reward, they are promoted to Manager level and above. Since they are basically scientific in nature, they have No people skills and No management skills to run a department. Hence the dilemma for seasoned professionals coming to work there!
Someone should do a LEAN exercise on the MANAGEMENTorganization! If you have any large company, Fortune 100 type experience, do not come here! You will become frustrated very quickly!
On the money side, you are always chasing the rabbit! 401k money is not given to you until one year and 2 months from the time you put it in, so you have to stay the 14 months just to get your 401 monies! The same with any bonus money! Instead of getting a bonus around Christmas, like Most companies, see you later! Like in February!
If you're a friend of an employee you will have a good chance to get in! If you are a yes man , in the clique, play paint ball you will probably stay!
Foreign bodies prevail! How did the US get tomore... this !less
Facilities Aide/Glasswasher (Former Employee) – Tarrytown, NY – March 5, 2015
I was introduced to a company that started in a loft by two scientists. The lifestyle of the company was very relaxed, yet super professional. High standards were set for every position in the company and there many online courses that had to be completed in order to maintain that level of professionalism. I had learned to comply with many rules and learned how to work with people on all levels of the company, from the labs to the offices. The culture of the company made it easy to meet everyone and network. It allowed room for growth and development. The only downside was the amount of pressure to be exceptional.
Paid holidays, steady hours, great benefits (health and life)
