Why It's a Great Employer

A subsidiary of a Danish biotech/pharmaceutical firm, this company traces its roots to 1925, when it was founded by two Danish brothers who developed the technology for insulin production, and who sought a workplace where people could "take care of each other like a family." Employees are called "Zymers" and one of their foundational principles is to "Make it Great to Be A Zymer." Their Community Relations Team organizes their array of fundraisers, drives, and community projects, and they give people eight hours per year to volunteer, in part by working at local schools to support science and biotech learning.
