Pros

The campus is quite beautiful.

Cons

Very poor culture for contract workers. There is a general lack of respect for contracted employees. I am very good at my job and am taking my knowledge and experience elsewhere. After so many years (7+) of giving the highest level of service, I am leaving to preserve my self respect.

Advice to Management

Clean house. There are far too many FTEs with little to no productivity. I would bet good money that my work is credited to FTEs on Performance Evaluations.

    Pros

    The company has great pay and benefits and is the most generous in the area. The campus is beautiful and the weather is usually fantastic.

    Cons

    Once you're in the door, career growth is slow as most hiring occurs from outside to take advantage of the weak economny. Amgen is also the most generous company in the area and there are not many external opportunities that match their benefits and compensation. If you want to grow your career and match your total compensation, expect to relocate.

    Advice to Management

    Don't underestimate the value of tribal knowledge. Many excellent employees have left Amgen to advance their careers, and valuable history and company experience left with them.
