Great time place to start a job
Associate Quality Control (Former Employee), Longmont, COMarch 13, 2014
Pros: experience and knowledge
Cons: temp position
This was my first experience with a big company and it was great. The people were great the work was fun and the learning was daily. Fresh out of school, I jumped in to my daily duties. There was lots of training and I learned the basics of media prep, autoclaves, use of pH meters and balances and more. I had great management that would try to help – more... develop my skills with my input. I enjoy being in the lab with my co-workers, working while still talking and having fun. – less

My review is based on BioVex, before Amgen bought the company.
Quality Control Analyst (Former Employee), Woburn, MAJanuary 14, 2014
Pros: some good employees to work with
Cons: terrible management and training
From the first day I started I was in a very negative environment. There was no team attitude at all. It was every man for himself with people talking behind everyone's back and no direction at all from management. The training was extremely poor I would never want to work under the same management again.
