SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cidara Therapeutics, Inc.

Cidara ranked among the top 15 small companies, and the number one ranked biotech in the small company category, in the San Diego Metro Area.
“We are once again honored to be recognized as a top workplace by our employees, whose feedback reflects our commitment to nurturing a positive work environment where we are true to our values and advocate for integrity, collaboration, urgency, accountability and courage,” said Jeffrey Stein, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of Cidara. “We foster innovation by challenging the status quo, encouraging new ideas and enabling autonomy, all while working with conviction at a pace that reflects the needs of the patients we serve.”

According to Energage, 100 percent of Cidara employees participated in the 2018 survey.
From its inception, Cidara leadership identified the core principles that would drive the company’s culture. From there, the entire organization fleshed out these principles to make that vision a reality, and to identify and articulate the common behaviors under each of these principles for which they would be accountable. The company continues to build and sustain this strong, principle-based culture as they work to bring lifesaving anti-infectives to patients.
