    Current Contractor - Associate Engineer in Thousand Oaks, CA

    I have been working at Amgen for less than a year

    Pros

    This is a good place to work. People are collaborative and want to get stuff done.

    Cons

    There are inefficiencies when it comes to their technical support. There are so many teams that you need to find the right person to ask questions. If you get frustrated at things going slowly, this is not the right place.

    Pros

    flexible around hours overall and whn you are a contractor.

    when you are a contractor, training is poor, communication is poor, and people are very defensive when you want to make change. seeking fulltime is almost impossible for IQA, they hire who they like vs who is right for the position.
