Former Employee - IS Business Analyst in Thousand Oaks, CA

I worked at Amgen full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Really smart, hardworking, busy people
Silicon-valley type benefits for southern cal
Technology-heavy work environment

Cons

Last few years mgmt has been heavy-handed with cost-cutting. People with 10-15 years tenure were let go with a few hours notice.
No visibility to mgmt decision-making.
Bottom-line is the stock price. So watch your back and keep a step-ahead of layoffs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Short-sighted decision-making, with advice fed by management consultants is harming the morale and loyalty of employees

    I have been working at Amgen full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Professional colleagues
    If you love strategy and enjoy science, this is the place
    They do the right thing, even when it's not profitable; patients do come first
    There is much to learn that it feels like you're a student in university
    Great campus with lots of conveniences like gym, dry cleaning, shoe repair, cake orders, film developing, etc.

    Cons

    Too much change all the time gets exhausting
    My dept does not encourage regular working from home, even when it makes perfect sense
    Senior mangers in tiny and noisy cubicles; demotivating

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please offer more formal telecommuting arrangements consistently across depts.
