I worked at Amgen full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Laid back environment, competitive pay, wonderful geographical location

Cons

Company has financial results dependent on just a few products protected by patents, which will eventually expire. New blockbuster drugs are not that easy to come up with anymore. As a result of the current patent protection, company struggles with a very relaxed approach to business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make it a professional company as if it had cut throat competition in the market place.
