Former Employee - Senior Manager in Thousand Oaks, CA

I worked at Amgen full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Still doing great things to change the quality of lives for people with terrible diseases. Some of the smartest people you will ever find.

Cons

Opportunities to advance in management are now limited. They tend to like to hire from the outside. Outsourcing has killed the culture that Amgen was founded and their success built.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to real workers and stop building a culture of 'yes' people who are afraid to take risks.
