Se­nior VP, HR & Fa­cil­i­ties Man­age­ment Col­lette Tay­lor Pos­i­tive buzz keeps women ap­ply­ing for jobs at this phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pany, where they made up 56% of all new hires in 2016 (in­clud­ing 52% of those at the man­ager level and above). Nearly half of its fe­male work­force be­longs to the Stel­lar Women re­source group, the largest of its seven em­ployee net­works, which am­pli­fies their ac­cess to men­tor­ing and net­work­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties. Job ro­ta­tions, al­ter­na­tive work ar­range­ments and half-day Fri­days (year-round) pro­vide par­ents with flex­i­bil­ity. New moms get 10 fully paid weeks off; the cost of adopt­ing a child (or an em­bryo!) is re­im­bursed.
