I worked at Amgen full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

good salary, excellent benefits, Nice working environment for most people. Structure of ethical behavior is in place with values etc.

Cons

Opportunities for advancement are limited, work life balance is not encouraged. Values are left by wayside due to continued attrition and layoffs and workloads increasing 2 or 3 fold.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Leadership needs to be reinstated and management needs to make staff feel valued.
