Nurtured on a foundation of strong values, Amgen is deeply rooted in science and innovation to transform new ideas and discoveries into medicines for patients with serious illnesses. Our mission is to serve patients, and we encompass this with each initiative, goal and task we have in mind!

Operations is one of three foundational functions at Amgen with a mission to manufacture and deliver safe and effective medicine to patients around the world. The organization is spread across eight sites and divided into five functions: Global Supply Chain, Process Development, Quality, Manufacturing, and Engineering.

We are currently seeking highly motivated, hardworking individuals who will lead initiatives, strategic analysis and business case development on projects across the five Operations functions. Along with key business partners and functional groups, this position will focus on making effective recommendations to the organization's senior leadership.

Leveraging his/her analytical, leadership, and interpersonal skills, the intern will work cross-functionally to identify the problem, measure the current state, develop recommendations through qualitative and quantitative analysis, and present the findings through various forums including an intern-wide poster session and a final readout to executive management.

This internship will be approximately 12 weeks that includes both project- based and experiential learning. Amgen provides a state-of-the-art workspace and promotes collaboration with senior leadership through a series of formal and informal events. In conjunction with the project work, interns will have the opportunity for professional development through training sessions, a week long cross-functional case study, one-on-one mentoring, and various networking events.
