About the Top Employers SurveyThe Science and Science Careers' annual Top Employers Survey polls employees in the biotechnology, biopharmaceutical, pharmaceutical, and related industries to determine the driving characteristics of the best employers and to identify the 20 best employers from a universe of about 200 companies.  Respondents to the web-based survey were asked to rate companies based on 23 characteristics, including financial strength, easy adaptation to change, and a research-driven environment.

According to Science, the 2011 global survey results were based on 3,784 responses from North America (80%), Europe (12%), and Asia/Pacific Rim (6%).  A mathematical process was used to assign a unique score to rate each company's employer reputation.
