I worked at Amgen full-time

Pros

Great people and culture. Access to senior management a plus, as well as new learning opportunities. Constantly trying to create efficiencies and improvements in the way the company and the functions operate.

Cons

Amgen is just now working on putting into place structured career development groups. In the future, once these groups are more mature, there will be good opportunities for employees.

    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.
