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

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

    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.
