Great in the beginning, Amgen's concern for work-life balance is slipping away.

Quality Assurance Specialist (Current Employee)
Thousand Oaks, CA

I have been working at Amgen full-time for more than 10 years

ProsNew CEO has great ideas about how to get Amgen into a modern mind set and business model. Drugs really help people with catastrophic health issues. Drugs in the pipeline are very promising. Manufacturing of the Future will become a reality at Amgen on a very aggressive timeline. Global expansion is a priority and is happening quickly opening up a lot of opportunities

ConsAmgen's devotion to operational excellence and lean manufacturing has left them with a dedicated, but exhausted workforce in many areas. Emphasis on metrics and ignoring the actual work place signals regarding workload have dealt a blow to the morale of several departments. There is a lot of middle management doing a lot less than the front line employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work when it comes to innovation, but hire people so that your salaried staff don't have to constantly work 60 hour a week or more to keep your projects on track.
