    “At Acorda you are given the opportunity to soar as high as you desire and are willing to go,” says one baby boomer at this biotech company. “That said, there is an unusually high bar of expectancy from each and every employee regardless of their position, title or responsibilities. It is a healthy competitive work environment with a minimum of inner office politics. The pace is extremely fast, different challenges and opportunities to excel at every day resulting in tremendous rewards and a great sense of accomplishment and pride every evening when one goes home to family. And while we are one family, at Acorda there is a terrific sense and practice of work/life balance. This is a very family friendly environment.”

     

    Acorda Therapeutics also appears at No. 86 on the list of the 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials.
