Abstract

Thriving biotechnology and pharmaceutical firms share philosophies when it comes to driving innovation, encouraging professional development, and respecting employees' work-life boundaries. These employers know that strategic alliances should serve to keep them on the cutting edge, and that scientists should be given the space, freedom, and resources to explore their riskiest and most creative ideas. They place a high priority on the professional growth of their scientists, and provide them with opportunities to add technical skills and expand leadership responsibilities. And when a long day of pushing projects forward is over, these workplaces make sure they pamper their researchers with celebratory downtime and easy ways to stay active, healthy, and connected—and even ice cream trucks in the summertime.
