Former Employee - Senior Associate IS Analyst  in  Thousand Oaks, CA
Former Employee - Senior Associate IS Analyst in Thousand Oaks, CA

I worked at Amgen full-time for 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

Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at Amgen full-time for 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.

    Glass ceiling for MEN

    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.
