The Science and Science Careers' 2016 annual Top Employers Survey polled employees in the biotechnology, biopharmaceutical, pharmaceutical, and related industries to determine the 20 best employers.
The American Association for the Advancement of Science survey asked respondents to rate companies based on 23 characteristics. According to the results, "scientists rank the highest satisfaction in industry jobs that let them flex their creative muscle, giving them the freedom to pursue risky ideas and the resources to test those ideas out at top speed."
The top ten employers named were:
1) Regeneron Pharma
2) Novo Nordisk
3) Moderna Therapeutics
4) Eli Lilly
8) Alexion Pharma
10) Roche (excluding Genentech)
