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 - Senior Associate IS Analyst in Thousand Oaks, CA

    I worked at Amgen full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of time off, there is a summer and winter week long shutdown.
    Nice on-site gym
    Decent benefits, especially 401k

    Cons

    Lots of corporate politics, some people enjoy this stuff I guess, I can't stand it
    Not much interesting work in IS, just following procedures to the letter. Again, some people like this, so if you do, then this would be a pro

    I have been working at Amgen full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great facility (good food, gym, nice outdoor space). Smart people, variety of workers(diversity), many standard procedures in place.

    Cons

    Many changes in managers make it difficult for employees to have a sense of stability. Some poor managers make if difficult for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your people managers are trained in how to lead people to get the best results from staff. Start listening to your staff.
