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

Pros

In the old days, Amgen was a big company that worked like a startup. The compensation was good, and there was a collaborative atmosphere and staff were motivated and energetic. The compensation is still good, and there is still collaboration, but not so much energy and motivation.

Cons

Organization and Culture is changing, maybe we are becoming 'big pharma' - but the market seems to like what's happening now, as the stock price is doing really well.

    Pros

    Great campus and gym, great science, generally good people

    Cons

    senior management gets more money while those doing the work (director and down) are getting less and less every year. Keep taking away the little things. Lack of development opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When I joined, Amgen was still unique but has turned into a typical large pharma company. More and more levels of management and politics to deal with with less recognition and innovation.

    I worked at Amgen full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits, perks and life balance

    Cons

    Overly political, if you aren't "in" with the managers you will be pushed around and pushed out. HR is useless and in no ways supports the working class.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would benefit the company to at least look into the working classes complaints. If you keep those actually doing the work happy, you might be able to keep them there and doing the work...
