Acorda Therapeutics

Courtesy of Acorda Therapeutics, Inc.

    The Westchester, New York-based pharmaceutical company is big on work-life balance. Every Friday during the summer, associates leave the office by 1 p.m., and during the rest of the year, many choose to work extra hours from Monday to Thursday to leave at 3 p.m. on Friday. Those who work at Acorda for 15 years earn a four-week paid sabbatical and a $10,000 bonus. Women not only make up the majority of the company, but they also hold the majority of executive and management positions. Read the Great Place to Work review.
