    Pros

    Great mobility within the company
    Excellent benefits
    Recognition for going above and beyond
    Good interactions with upper management
    Great development of staff

    Cons

    Quick to outsource groups without looking at individual contributors
    Too much focus on Lean and fast cost savings
    Executive leadership depends too heavily on GSS to make decisions on outsourcing work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the employees you are actually letting go to see if they might have some value to the company
    Have a contingency plan for outsourcing

    Former Employee - Senior Manager Finance in Thousand Oaks, CA

    I worked at Amgen full-time (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.
