Genentech has triumphed and placed top of the list in a survey from BioSpace, that asked 2,440 life sciences professionals to name the three companies they would most like to work for. 

This was the company’s first annual Ideal Employer survey, writes BioSpace. They asked participants to do this by rating them on the attributes that they believe are important to the job search process, including company culture, mission, salary, benefits and reputation.

Biotech company, Genentech conducts basic and applied research in oncology, immunology, neuroscience, metabolism, and infectious disease. It is aiming to invest approximately $10 billion each year in R&D, the contains a robust pipeline with more than 70 potential new drugs in development across Genentech and Roche.

Recent successes from the company include positive results from two studies of its investigational hemophilia medicine, with additional results expected later this year. Also, they have received recent approval of their drug for multiple sclerosis, as well as exploring and developing therapeutics for neurodegenerative processes in other diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.

The company is very aware that its successes are as a result of ensuring employee happiness. A way in which it does this is through inviting patients into the offices so that employees can hear directly from people who have benefited from their medicines. 

The results from the survey highlight how life sciences professionals look for both interesting and meaningful work, a competitive salary, and a good reputation. Genentech ranked top in the Ideal Employer, Interesting and Meaningful Work and Competitive Salary categories.
