Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Quality Control Analytical Science Intern

May - August 2019 • Albany, NY

What I liked

I loved being so hands on in my department. Being able to learn from my manager and other colleagues things that I wouldn't have learned just in class was an extremely valuable experience. I also loved that interns were able to work on projects that related directly to the company and its business decisions.

What I wish was different

I can't think of anything that I wish had been different. With a growing internship program, Regeneron seems to know how to run all intern events very smoothly!

Advice

Ask questions. In any internship/job it is important to ask when you don't know something. At Regeneron, when they say ask questions, they mean it. Everyone is extremely supportive and willing to teach so being curious about everything and asking "why" can only help you.

What I liked

I learned a lot and it was a really robust internship program, so I was able to befriend and collaborate with a lot of other college students

What I wish was different

I have always wanted to work in Cambridge or Boston, so the capital region fell a little bit short, but it was still a pretty fun area

Advice

The internship program is very competitive and a lot of people that I worked with didn’t get a job until the second year that they applied

Process Data Monitoring Intern

May - August 2017 • Rensselaer, NY

What I liked

The company culture was very welcoming and easy to adjust to. Regeneron treats their interns with very high respect while challenging them at the same time. The company's internship program is very well built and organized.

What I wish was different

I wish there was more opportunity to explore the other departments and positions available in the company in order to learn more about the different factors in the manufacturing process.

Advice

Even though the projects can be demanding and substantial, being outgoing is also important. In such a friendly environment, it is beneficial to become known by other interns and the employees.

Regeneron intern

May - August 2018 • Albany, NY

What I liked

I loved the company atmosphere and the support that all employees were happy to give the interns. I also loved that I was heading a project as opposed to doing what i was told to do for a project which allows me to apply my own experience and learn dynamically along the way

What I wish was different

I wish that I had a bit more of an idea of what I would be doing for the summer before my start date. I was given the department and my manager before my start date so I wasn’t going in blind!

Advice

Don’t be narrow minded when you hear a project, even if it’s not what you wanted to do for the summer it will give you the ability to learn a wast set of new skills

Purification Development Intern

May - August 2018 • Tarrytown, NY

What I liked

Loved the student programs as a whole. Very supportive and interactive. I loved working with so many other students, in a very collaborative project. I also liked being able to take charge of my own experiments and work independently in the lab.

What I wish was different

Wish I could have worked there longer, maybe on co-op to just gain more experience.

Advice

This is an awesome company. They’re so invested in their technology, products, patients, and employees. Take advantage of every opportunity at Regeneron to learn as much as possible. Definitely a fast paced work environment, but well worth it as you get so much out if it!

The freedom to perform my own experiments and be mentored by scientists.

What I wish was different

Nothing.

Advice

If you’re thinking about working in medicine, but don’t want to be a doctor or a nurse, you might want to consider pharmaceuticals! Doing the behind the scenes research is just as impactful and so much fun.
