I have been working at Amgen full-time (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 Management

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

    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 Management

    Show us the money after billions of investment in RD.
