    Pros

    Lots of paid time off (in addition to a full week off at July 4th, and an additionall full week at Christmas, you start at three weeks vacation then get an additional day per year after your fifth year....plus an additional 10 or so paid holidays).

    Gym onsite - or, if you're at a site without a gym, a $600 allowance for local gym membership.

    Cons

    When I started about 10 years ago, there was an atmosphere that the company cared for the employees that did a good job. Those that didn't meet minimum standards didn't last long, and those that excelled were compensated well. The re were frequent small perks that didn't cost hte company much, but still let the worker bees know that they were appreciated - things like fermentation seminars, ocassional free breakfasts, Crhistmas parties, that sort of thing. But there hasn't been ANY of those things for at least four years now.

    Couple that with multiple rounds of layoffs, expanded usage of contract workers (at a year or two a a time), and there's no wonder that the morale across the company has been falling. Though "shareholder value" has been increasing for the last year and a half, the consensus among employees is that the Board and CEO are doing their best to pump up hte stock price so that they can make a mint in the short term, at the expense both of patients and us hourly employees.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about your employees again...and not just the ones at the executive levels. The lower grades are the folks who do all the hands-on work, after all. Treat us right, and we'll continue to make Amgen the best biotech...but keep treating us like crap, and you'll get crap work back.
