Trevena’s Culture

We believe in our science and in the people that make it possible. As a small company, every employee is critical to our success and we strive to make sure that every voice is heard. We all sit in an open-plan office with no physical barriers to communication and interaction across disciplines and across levels. The company’s goals, challenges and successes are clearly outlined and we work as one team to make the organization successful.

We empower our employees to make their contribution count. Every employee has an opportunity to impact Trevena’s success and to benefit personally from that success as a shareholder of the company.

We work hard but we also have fun. Whether it’s sharing a home-made cake in the break room, running off calories together in Valley Forge park or throwing gutter-balls at Trevena bowling night, there is a strong focus on social as well as scientific interaction.

At Trevena, we have built a great team who are committed to ground breaking science and to each other. We involve all key team members in hiring decisions and are delighted that the culture of passion, commitment and fun stays strong as the company continues to grow.

We have been designated a Great Place to Work®, a testament to our high-pride and high-performance work culture. The Great Place to Work® recognition program represents 6,200 companies across the world – we are one of only seven small/mid-size biotech companies to be given this distinction.

Trevena’s Location – Chesterbrook

Trevena is headquartered in a custom-built office space in the Chesterbrook Corporate Center. For the outdoor enthusiast, nine miles of jogging trails connect Chesterbrook to the nearby 90-acre Valley Forge National Park. For shopping/dining, the Chesterbrook Village Shopping Center, Gateway Shopping Center, and King of Prussia Mall are all close by.

In the broader area, there are a multitude of attractive communities where our employees can base themselves. From the Philadelphia Main Line through to West Chester, towns include Ardmore, Bryn Mawr, Radnor, Villanova, Wayne, Devon, Berwyn, Paoli and Malvern. Even closer to the site, employees live in Chesterbrook, King of Prussia, Conshohocken, and Phoenixville. There are many opportunities to base yourself near great schools, restaurants, farmers markets, etc.

Chesterbrook is part of the Greater Philadelphia’s Life Sciences Cluster, an active, vibrant and supportive community working to accelerate the growth of life sciences companies. The region achieved top rankings in the 2009 Milken Report due to a strong blend of established pharma, research infrastructure, world-renowned universities, emerging startups, workforce, and support network for entrepreneurs.
