La Jolla Institute ranks among the Best Places to Work in San Diego-again!

LA JOLLA, CA- The numbers are in and La Jolla Institute for Immunology is a top finalist in the San Diego Business Journals 19th Annual Best Places to Work Awards.

This isn’t the first time that the San Diego Business Journal made the list. In 2016, La Jolla Institute was a top finalist as one of the Best Places to Work and that same year making the journal’s list of the Healthiest Places to Work, for the fourth consecutive year (2013-2016). In 2013, the last year the survey was conducted, The Scientist voted La Jolla Institute the Best Place to Work in Academia worldwide.

Among many others, we like to credit President and Chief Scientific Officer Mitchell Kronenberg, who has been named one of San Diego’s “Most Admired CEO” by the San Diego Business Journal last year for cultivating La Jolla Institute’s famously collegiate, friendly and nurturing environment.

This particular survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in San Diego, benefiting the county’s economy, workforce, and businesses. The list is made up of 100 companies that are split into four categories: 42 small-sized companies (15-49 US employees), 28 medium-sized companies (50-249 US employees), 18 large-sized companies (250-1,999 US employees), and 12 mega-sized companies (2,000 or more US employees).

Companies from across San Diego county entered into the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in San Diego. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s demographics, practices, philosophy, system, workplace policies and wellness initiatives. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.

The nominated companies will be honored at an awards ceremony on September 14, where the final ranking will be announced. For more information on the Best Places to Work Awards in San Diego program, visit
