Gender Gap = Leadership Gap Read this just for this quote: "Under Moritz's leadership, for example, PwC is making systemic changes so that those who dial down in the middle are not marked forever by those choices. The firm doesn't judge the annual performance of someone who takes four months parental leave using the same metrics as someone who worked the whole year. The firm also allows professionals to off ramp completely for a period of time. One woman who did came back to the firm and just made partner." That poor woman *sadface* [HuffPo]

ImmunoGen, Inc. Gets Into the Black, Accounting Wise It's, like, magic: "The lumpiness is purely an accounting issue. When partners license ImmunoGen's antibody drug conjugate technology, ImmunoGen typically gets upfront cash as part of the deal, but then has to amortize the up-front fees until the companies designate which antibody they're going to use the license on. During the second quarter, Novartis and Eli Lilly took licenses on deals that were established in 2010 and 2011 respectively, causing the payments to go onto the profit/loss statement in the second quarter, despite having received the cash years ago."
