Gain knowledge of modern analytical chemistry processes and assays in a progressive pharmaceutical company
Albany, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

challenging, well-paid.


Downers

lack of choice for supervisor/mentor nor project.


Advice to Potential Interns

If the area works and you are an honest person, you should apply here.


Advice to Management

More focus on in-house promotion. There is a definite sense of growing pains in the work community that can have negative fallout and bringing in managers or "higher-ups" from outside the company taints or changes the beauty of this company's fundamental characteristics (such as the Regen 5). I don't say that we should avoid change but often I see changes that try to normalize us towards a "typical" pharma company where I know we would prefer to set the precedent.

An eye opening internship experiance with Regeneron, a company with amazing culture and science!
New York, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The culture at Regeneron is great. Everyone here belives in the company and the company's goals, works hard for them, and realy feels like a family. The belief in science first is also a huge plus, profits are invested back in to further research.


Downers

Space was a little tight in our 'inter room' but it ended up with positives, since our group was very close knit.


Advice to Potential Interns

Everything you hear from people you speak with that work here, about how much they love their job is true. There is a pride in Regeneron from the top down, and everyone is happy here!


Advice to Management

Its hard to find flaws with Regneron. The only real complaint is the space issue, and it is a result of the rapid growth of the company. It is already being addressed with several new buildings in the plan.

Experience cutting-edge research as a valuable member of the team.
Other (US) | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I believe that my department is doing some of the most cutting-edge science in the field today. To add to that I am in a company that has just hit their stride as one of the most up and coming pharmaceutical companies in the world. My co-workers believe that they are in the best company in their field, and that belief creates a unique company culture. Regeneron tries to keep a "small company" feel, even as it continues to become more and more widely recognized as a leader in its industry (it was recently named an S&P 500 company). I think that this contributed to it being named the world's number one biopharmaceutical employer last year.


Downers

I think that it is difficult to become fully immersed in a long-term project if you are only here for 12 weeks. Many projects take months to finish, and as a novice researcher, you are more likely to see bits and pieces of different projects throughout the pipeline, rather than having a thorough view of one project, beginning to end.


Advice to Potential Interns

Jump in. Ask questions, shadow researchers. There is a lot going on, and it can seem intimidating at first, but you will get the most out of the experience if you really take the time to learn from the people around you.


Advice to Management

I think Jess does a great job with the program.

The fact that it is an internship (not possible to stay longer due to college)

Large amount of responsibility given to interns to gain experience in the work place.
Albany, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Responsibility given helps create a better, more well rounded thinking individual. Free breakfast on Fridays makes the employee feel valued. Internship is paid which helps reward intern for their work.


Downers

Commute is rather long and traffic is usually jammed coming home.


Advice to Potential Interns

Company is growing which creates a large number of job openings in the future. Workers are very friendly and there is no dress code which makes for an easy transition from college

I was treated like an actual employee, with a project that mattered.
Albany, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

It was a great experience of what the industry is like. I learned a lot and applied a lot of my education.


Downers

It would be nice to have more intern-geared events. All we got to do was plan kid's day, which isn't as fun as alternatives.


Advice to Potential Interns

You should be willing to work hard and show good work ethic. Always pay attention to detail.


Advice to Management

Compensation seems to be a bit low, in terms of a full time employee's pay. My compensation as an intern was fine though. Everything else was superb.


Would You Recommend

Yes
