CIENCE Awarded Top Best Places to Work by Comparably

CIENCE achieves top honors thanks to our employees! In celebration of the highest-rated companies, Comparably released its 5th Annual Best Places to Work Awards, honoring CIENCE in four categories based on employee feedback: Best Companies for Diversity, Best Company Culture, Best Companies for Women, and Best CEO for 2021.  

“It seems almost too good to be true to have built such a diverse, fair, and vibrant culture,” said Michele Crocker, COO of CIENCE. “So it is great to have this third-party validated, statistically significant survey affirming what a great company CIENCE is.”

“This is even more relevant given our ambitious growth plans to likely add hundreds, if not over a thousand more employees over the next year,” said CIENCE CEO John Girard, who also acknowledged what a great honor it is to be recognized personally.

“I’m humbled by the voice of our team here, and their confidence in me as one of the Top 50 CEOs out of tens of thousands … I mean, this is such an esteemed company. This is a real honor.” —John Girard, CEO at CIENCE  

These ratings were provided by current employees who anonymously rated their companies in sixteen core workplace culture metrics on during the previous twelve months (November 26, 2020, through November 26, 2021). CIENCE employees provided 10,393 anonymous ratings from 1,364 employee reviews. 

The awards are compiled from comprehensive data across fifteen million anonymous ratings from more than 70,000 companies at both the top 100 large companies (more than 500 employees) and top 100 small/mid-size companies (500 employees or fewer).
