Pros

Top notch 401k, very generous compensation, merit based bonuses for all staff Honest attempt to communicate frequently to the masses Some of the best leaders I've run across (and fewer leader-slugs) Takes corporate values seriously

Cons

Still struggling to get internal research right-sized Numerous acquisitions in past 12 years have created numerous small site challenges Will continue to outsource to contain costs - disruptive no matter how well done

Advice to Management

Don't forget the values

    Pros

    Awesome benefits probably the best benefits of any company.

    Cons

    Sell or die. Don't expect management to ever have your back. Most of the new managers are only out for number one. Make sure you get a hood manager and vet who you will be working for. At Amgen your manager will make you or break you. Stay away from the Bone Health diviision especially in highly managed health care markets.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to selling medicine instead of trying so hard to please the investor and work for the patient again

    Pros

    Culture, Benefits, Salary. Resources available.

    Cons

    Infusion of other old pharma cultures in Puerto Rico operations. Growth.

    Advice to Management

    Re-Establish the culture and values that made Amgen the company it is today.
