A firsthand look at a "real world" career in medical research
Other (US) | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The people I work with made it easy for me to learn quickly and help me out whenever I need it. Another great aspect was the intern events that are held weekly because they feature talks and discussions about future career paths, give advice for interviewing/applying to medical or graduate schools and help you to get to know other interns.


Downers

I personally had a long commute to work which I didn't like at times.


Advice to Potential Interns

If offered an internship here you should definitely accept it. You will learn an immense amount in the short time you're here about the job that you are doing but also about how the professional world works. It will also give you an idea of what career path you'd like to pursue.

Regeneron builds new device lab with a ton of awesome toys; interns learn how to use
Other (US) | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Device Lab & instruments, proximity to school, entension into the fall semester part-time, networking


Downers

not as well compensated as friends in similar fields


Advice to Potential Interns

If you don't have anything to do, make work for yourself.


Advice to Management

don't advertise sports teams if we can't play on them! maybe adjust compensation to similar companies/industries. More intern programs such as a day where we all go somewhere and do something together to get to know more people in the company.

My summer internship at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals was interesting, fulfillling, and an excellent opportunity to learn about pharma.
Other (US) | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The flexibility, compensation, and office culture were excellent and far exceeded my high expectations. The work was very interesting, and the opportunity to observe the day-to-day goings-on in a corporate research lab was very informational. My internship has made me seriously consider working in the pharmaceutical industry.


Downers

I wish I had been allowed to learn more about the current projects going on in the lab I worked in. Because so much of the research is confidential, I'm not told details about projects I don't "need to know".


Advice to Potential Interns

I would highly recommend Regeneron for a summer internship. They are selective, so be sure to apply early. Also, try to highlight previous laboratory experiences that can tie into the project you are applying to.


Advice to Management

I enjoyed the environment at Regeneron very much. However, one manager requested that I not be allowed to go to group meetings. I understand that confidential things might be discussed in them, but if the purpose of the internship is to show me what working at Regeneron is like, I should be able to be present at events most other employees are welcome at. Also, this manager treated employees somewhat rudely and micromanaged them, definitely reducing moralle.

Building My Career Experience Through Interning: First Taste of the Real World
Other (US) | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Everyone was extremely helpful and always willing to answer all of my questions


Downers

Unfortunately my colleagues had limited time to spend teaching me new things due to the rapid growth of this company - they were always very busy


Advice to Potential Interns

The company culture seems to revolve around communication, team building, valuing each and every employee and the work that they do


Advice to Management

Ocassionally there are slight miscommunications between departments, causing one department to not be aware of a new policy that the other department has put in place. Individuals in management positions could work on improving this.

A company that cares more about what you can learn from them than what they can get out of you.
Albany, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

As stated in the headline, many opportunities were presented to learn about the company and the whole biopharmaceutical process as a whole. Everybody here is very friendly, and went out of their way to teach me skills that would help me advance in my profession much more quickly.


Downers

The wages are not ideal, and no relocation assistance was provided. There were not many opportunities to get to know or network with the other interns, which I feel would have been valuable.


Advice to Potential Interns

This company will welcome you with open arms, and will teach you anything you want to know. They are extremely open to improvement ideas, and are constantly asking for them. Honestly, any cons that are stated will probably be dealt with before the next wave of interns are even hired so don't let them turn you off to this opportunity. If you come here with an open mind and strong desire to learn, then you will love this place.


Advice to Management

Once again, the compensation was not ideal, but at a company with such a heavy focus on continuous improvement, I can't picture it being a problem for too much longer. Relocation assistance should be offered to those who need it. Also, I think more opportunities for interns to meet each other would be a great perk.

Friendly culture with great insights into how biotechs work
Albany, NY | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspect of my internship was the people that I worked with. Countless times people would take time out of their schedules to talk to me about questions I had about the company or their specific job. I was also given the opportunity to learn how to perform a number of tasks under different employees. I was not forced to just watch, but I was actually encouraged to be hands on.


Downers

I felt that I was not challenged enough during my internship. I had a lot of down time, and the projects that I was assigned did not require a lot of critical thinking. My manager was also super busy, which left me with the responsibility of finding things to work on.


Advice to Potential Interns

I believe Regeneron is a great place to work because the culture is so supportive and friendly. However, to ensure that you are also enjoying your work as much as the culture, I think you have to really consider what part of the biotech process you want to be in. The areas of the company are very diverse and each one requires a certain set of skills/thinking, so if you do your research and apply to areas that fit what you are looking for, then you will love coming to work here.


Advice to Management

Personally, I would like to see a rotational program put in place. I know that Regeneron recently started the X-pert program, which is along those lines, but a rotational program is a great way to find out exactly what other areas of the company do. It is a great opportunity especially for new employees to find where they will fit the best.
