    I have been working at Amgen full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are good; very good 401k matching; relatively smart people to work with; variety of possible career paths

    Cons

    This place is a bit dysfunctional at the moment following recent re-org; Fairly noticeable shift in culture as old Sr. Mgmt flushed out and replaced with new ones. They struggle to make any decision...lots of swirl before a strategy is finally selected.

    I have been working at Amgen full-time for 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
