    Pros

    All the people at Amgen are very smart, and it is a great opportunity to grow and learn. There are plenty of internal opportunities for people who are willing and able to show a broad range of talents and apply skills against a range of dynamic problems.

    Cons

    While the company was once a vibrant start-up, it is becoming obsessed with stock price, and bureaucracy and corporate groupthink are increasingly taking over.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure the company as smaller research and development startups, and give sites more autonomy. It will be easier to integrate new acquisitions. Also -- reinvigorate the commitment to patients and staff -- there has been too much emphasis on shareholders in the last 5 years.
