Former Employee - Summer Intern in Thousand Oaks, CA

I worked at Amgen as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Summer internship was an excellent opportunity to explore the pharmaceutical industry. We were each assigned summer projects which we presented upon the end of our 3 months. This paid internship also includes summer housing, car rental, gym membership, and fun extracurricular events (surfing, baseball games, kayaking, etc.). Many opportunities to network with executive level employees . Excellent Executive (C-Level) Speaker Series.

Cons

None. After completing the summer internship program, many interns were presented with full-time offers.

    I have been working at Amgen as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people, great benefits, entire campus is closed for 1 week for 4th of July, wonderful learning experiences and mentors who really want to help.

    Gym, food, services (dry-cleaning, rental cars, etc.) all on campus!

    Cons

    Somewhat far away and in its own little bubble

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people within company the ability to rise through the ranks instead of constantly hiring from the outside and demoralizing morale of long-time employees
