    I worked at Amgen as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I got to work on challenging and interesting projects. As an intern I was able to attend interesting events. The senior management really ensured that I was enjoying my work. The work life balance is great.

    Cons

    Sometimes it was a little slow in the office (may have been because it was the summer). I also wish that the DC office hired more interns, it was a little lonely at times.
