    I worked at Amgen

    Pros

    Great work / life balance. There is a new mentorship program that looks like it could be promising in terms of staff development. Staff are encouraged to transfer to internal positions if there is a fit. On site gym and day care facilities.

    Cons

    The bi-annual performance review and feedback process is frequently inefficient, inaccurate, and ineffective. Favoritism is sometimes practiced by mid-level management (as with many places, who you know can be more important than what you know).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In general, there could be more of an emphasis on interdepartmental integration and knowledge sharing.
