    I worked at Amgen

    Pros

    The vast majority of the staff are outstanding

    Cons

    Decision-making is a struggle for the leaders of this company; culture varies greatly from one group to another based upon the strength or weakness of leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top leaders should stay more in touch with hands-on staff

    I have been working at Amgen full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, good pay. Has been a good experience builder and will look great on my resume.

    Cons

    Company is going through continuous down-sizing exercises and is moving out of the US. It is very clear that they do not value the talent they have grown. The company values have shifted over the last years from being patient based to being dollar based.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that your base systems and processes are solid before you try to LEAN them out. So far, this has not been the case and it is going to create a huge compliance risk.

    I have been working at Amgen

    Pros

    Amgen has a lot of smart people working there. It is a great place to do a few year rotations within and experience different areas (sales, finance, marketing, etc.) or even do an international assignment.

    Cons

    It is difficult to move up to the Director level at Amgen. Many people stay here for 3 to 5 years and use the experience to go elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to make changes to increase efficiency and growth.
