Current Employee - Senior Manager in Thousand Oaks, CA

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

Pros

Women get promoted over men. Is that really a positive?

Cons

...so much so that there is a glass ceiling for MEN as a result of overblown reverse discrimination....whereby women are considered a minority group to be promoted over men

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There should be at least a 1:1 ratio between men and women in Director + positions, wouldn't you think? There isn't.

    Pros

    Great people, culture, benefits. Beautiful campus, especially the newer buildings

    Cons

    Sometimes you get stuck working in areas that aren't exactly your first choice and sometimes its hard to get out of that position. Sometimes people are moved around to different groups and never get a good amount of experience in any one area due to the constant moving that is needed by the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the history of employees and if their history with the company shows that they have been moved around a lot and you are about to move them, you should ask them if they want to move and maybe think about moving someone else so that the person may stay in a position for once, and get enough experience to do some good, especially if its someone who has already previously been moved around a lot.
