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

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 Management

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 (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 Management

    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...
