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

    I worked at Amgen as an intern

    Pros

    Good learning and training experience; offered the best compensation package for interns.

    Cons

    It's more of a training opportunity, not a future-full-time directed internship. No entry-level full-time hiring intention in the department. I have to look for other opportunities though I really want to work for this company.

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

    Pros

    Benefits and pay are in the top of our industry.
    401k match is amazing and a lot of paid leave.
    Atmosphere used to be better, although is still great. Attitudes are generally positive in the work place and open communication is generally accepted.

    Cons

    Benefits have slowly reduced (although still great)
    Atmosphere is much more competitive due to less positions available in the last few years.
    Workload has increased significantly as hiring of new staff is slow to respond to demand for work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better analysis of hiring needs. Work slack from lack of hiring for positions is being taken in by compromising work/life balance with existing staff.
