    Former Employee - Specialist in Thousand Oaks, CA
    Former Employee - Specialist in Thousand Oaks, CA

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

    Pros

    The company still pays bonus and RSU for FTEs.

    Cons

    Laying off FTEs almost every other month in the past 6 months that I am aware of, and the company hires contractors for those positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't think that strategy is good for the company in the long run.
