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

Pros

Global company with a great name in the industry, awesome location and benefits , in addition their drug pipeline is getting stronger. Recent setbacks have caused them to become humbler

Cons

in a bid to reduce costs they made a huge mistake by outsourcing IT and now are trying to bring it back in house. The CIO had to fall on his sword and leave as a result. The current CEO needs to go

Advice to ManagementAdvice
