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

    Pros

    A friendly and ethical company which has patients at the fore front of their business. Great benefits, good bonus opportunities and a lead employer within the pharmaceutical world

    Cons

    Believe a really strong educational background is necessary to progress. Currently going through major change. Most of the high level jobs are based at headquarters in Thousand Oaks

    I worked at Amgen as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    People, there no perks being a contingency worker

    Cons

    They have recently just undergone significant downsizing of their staff. They Only hiring Contingency workers going forward, but they too are not safe as they get rid of you ASAP signed a 12 month contract only to be told they no longer need me 6 month in to role, due to internal re structure which affected perm staff. your not safe. very dissatisfied with Amgen towards CW. Poor management from Directors and agency that support staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect to all staff members, you get what you pay after all, if you put your hand in your pocket and dig deep you have better staff applying for jobs
