Our client is a multi-billion dollar (~$4B) and growing global biopharma company in Eastern Pennsylvania. The company offers a great work environment with tremendous career potential and good work/life balance. When I first began partnering with this client, I asked a cross-section of the IT team what they liked best about the company; hands down, the number one answer was "the people I work with". This is truly a great group of people and their hiring profile is: highly intelligent people who are friendly and can work both as independent contributors and as part of a global team.

The company offers a great mentoring culture and they create developmental opportunities for their employees in all areas. They even go so far as to have rotational assignments (from 6 weeks to a year) that you can request. The rotational assignment may be affiliated with a particular project or it may be that someone wants to gain exposure to another area of the business or within IT. They also have rotational assignments on a global basis if someone wishes to live abroad for a period of time. They really get it. When they've had to be more efficient, they cross trained employees to avoid downsizing them wherever they could. Very few companies think that way!
