    Former Employee - Scientist in Seattle, WA

    I worked at Amgen full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Support advancement when it is earned and makes sense. Good team support of projects big or small and reasonable assignment of resources.

    Cons

    Glacial trying to get a new project approved or a capex purchase made. Even though once its doneit can be done on an almost unlimited scale the approval process is too long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Form and inter-department committee to regularly review what each department is doing. This way the right hand will know what the left hand is doing.
