    Current Employee - Senior Manager Training & Development in Thousand Oaks, CA

    I have been working at Amgen full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits
    Vacation time is excellent with two additional weeks paid during July 4 and Christmas/New Year
    Latest technology and smart people

    Cons

    Decision making is often slow. Too many individuals involved in making decisions.
    Loyalty between manager and subordinate is weak. Random layoffs over the last few years has everyone doing whatever is necessary to keep their jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within to give current employees hope that promotions do happen.

    Current Employee - Senior Marketing Manager in Thousand Oaks, CA

    I have been working at Amgen full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are competitive.
    Location is desirable for families and because of weather, but there are no other companies in the industry within 50 miles.
    Name recognition can be helpful in pursuit of other jobs.
    Many nice people sill work at the company.

    Cons

    Unethical conduct
    Management looking out for #1
    Lack of career development and no attempt to improve the situation despite 4 years of negative feedback from staff.
    Disinterest in staff as human beings
    Focus on bottom line and process, not on quality or patients

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find your moral compass
    Do what is right for your staff and for patients

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
