See what our Interns are saying about working here!
I've had the opportunity to see many different departments and work with amazing people from all over the world with diverse viewpoints who are just totally invested in innovating every day.
Biologics & Vaccines
Joining a company like this has been a great experience for me and I can't think of anywhere else to be right now. I'm glad I'm part of a company and a team that is working every day to make lives of people better, to impact and improve lives, so that has been a great experience for me.
Supply Chain Management Intern
Everybody treats me not like an intern, but like any other employee; and that makes a big different being an older intern coming from a different environment. My first impressions were, 'wow, these people are awesome, they're talking to me like I'm one of them.'
