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

Pros

Great benefits, time off, flexible hours, good pay, somewhat stable - very if you consider it in comparison to todays economy.

Cons

Way too many meetings, town halls and such stuff. Upper management is a bit too conservative and behind in looking at doing things that are at the very edge.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put more effort into partnering things that have potential but either won't return enough for the money or have a higher chance of failure.

    It is very hard to promote at Amgen. Some of the departments are very silohed.

    A great place to Work - although there was a lack of a career path

    Former Employee - IT Project Manager in Thousand Oaks, CA

    I worked at Amgen full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great company, friendly peers and solid processes. The company treated its employees well and pay was inline with other biotechs. Awesome global HQ in Thousand Oaks.

    Cons

    Career progression was challenging in IT, especially when the company decided to outsource to IBM. The transition to IBM was a disaster and the CIO had to resign - hopefully things will turn around now.
