    Former Employee in Thousand Oaks, California

    Health care, child care and Gym On-site

  • Jan 20, 2015
    Former Employee in Thousand Oaks, California

    vacation time, 401k matching (though who knows how long it will last for)

  • Jan 13, 2015
    Current Employee in Juncos, Puerto Rico

    Best: Good annual performance bonuses.
    Worst: there are many rumors that the performance bonus will be reduced next year...

  • Jan 12, 2015
    Former Senior Associate Scientist in Seattle, Washington State

    Best part of the benefits is two weeks of paid holidays for everyone. The company is shutdown for a week in July and a week at Christmas. This does not impact your vacation days.

    Former Employee in Thousand Oaks, California

    Great 401k plan with a 5% match; insurance; great gym; good vacation package;

  • Jan 2, 2015
    Current Sales Representative in Fayetteville, Arkansas

    Health insurance, especially prescription drug coverage gets worse every year

  • Dec 23, 2014
    Current Employee in Thousand Oaks, California

    The 401(k) 2 to 1 match (for those contributing their 5%) is almost unheard of in this day and age. Annually, if a staff member makes say $100,000 in salary and contributes 5% of that salary over the course of the year, Amgen will match that $5k contribution with $10k that is vested immediately.

    Current Employee in Boulder, Colorado

    Excellent vacation and health insurance benefits

  • Dec 18, 2014
    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.

    Good overall package, sometimes difficult to find out the actual benefit information.
