Employee Comments

    Current Employee in Boulder, Colorado

    Excellent vacation and health insurance benefits

    Current Employee in South San Francisco, California

    Time off policy is great, a summer shutdown for the week of July 4th, a winter shutdown from Christmas through New Year's, plus all the usual holidays. After 5 years employment, you get gain an extra vacation day every year. Financial benefits are nice, including large annual bonuses, stock units, 401K matching, etc.

    Amgen offers a wide variety of options at great prices. Their benefits team works diligently to ensure that the options available are competitive and exceptional. Client service could be better, there are many ways to access information, but for the user can be confusing.
