Good place to work if you can manage the politics

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

Pros

A chance to make real impact on the lives of grievously ill people. Very good benefits, including company shut down the first week of July and the last week of December.

Cons

The company is overloaded at the levels of director and above with too many people who spend time meeting, talking, lunching, dining, and interfering with real work. (There are a few notable exceptions.) Most people below these levels are very dedicated professionals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be vigilant and skeptical with senior people describing themselves and their work with profuse superlatives.

    Make decisions and get the right people in the job who know how to manage people.
