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

Pros

Great company to work for. Salary and bonus structure make it difficult to ever want to leave.

Cons

Very hard to move up in company. Company thinks employees should do many lateral moves before trying to move up.

    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 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.
