Former Employee - Senior Manager Finance  in  Thousand Oaks, CA
Former Employee - Senior Manager Finance in Thousand Oaks, CA

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

Pros

Pay pay pay, benefits benefits
So many resources available to accomplish everything: cash rich

Cons

Right hand does not know what left hand is doing
Too much greed and too much 'marketing' to the masses to give us that focus is more than just about profit: who cares about the patients when we milk them to the tune of billions yearly?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Show us the money after billions of investment in RD.
