Three among the top 10 assignees have an abandonment/rejection rate more than the average abandonment rate of their GAUs. Also, Intel is the only USA based company amongst the three. 

Interestingly, Amazon’s abandonment/rejection rate is insanely low at 2.74% at GAUs with an average abandonment rate of 24.6% which is one of the highest on the list. No other assignee comes nearby to Amazon’s feat!
