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.

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
