Pros

Amgen has such a strong pipeline and so many quality products. They are always coming up with innovative ways to do things, which means there is always opportunity within the company. With such a large group of employees, it's very easy to network. The benefits we get are also top notch. Amgen was very supportive of me when I was having medical problems, and I really appreciate everything the company and my co-workers did for me while I was ill. I am definitely proud to work at Amgen, and I would reccommend this company to others.

Cons

Sometimes it takes a little longer to get promoted within your department than it should, which can be frustrating, but I definitely can't argue with the benefits. Sure, the salary might be a little higher at another company, but I don't know anyone else who has such a good 401k package.

Advice to Management

Promote people within the company instead of always hiring from outside. In many cases, I have had to train people hired in at a higher level than me even though I had more experience. Recognize the talent you have within, and reward people based on their talent. Yes, sometimes external people bring a new set of experience to the table, but there are already many talented people at the company.
In general, I appreciate Amgen's benefits and the culture here.

    Pros

    Good benefits, competitive salary, good science

    Cons

    Management club mentality, hard to promote good people, bullying from managements to meet metrics, low integrity .

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and good managers. Dont promote based on how loud people are, or size of their egos. Fix the performance system- too biased towards what biassed people say, vs agreed results. Be honest and keep integrity when making the risk decisions to meet a metric or market target.
