I have been working at Amgen full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Amgen is still a highly competitive place to work and draws the most talented and educated employees. The benefits are still best in its industry and working on the main campus is awesome.

Cons

Amgen used to be a great place to work 7 years ago. Upper management has changed drastically over the years and the numerous changes and layoffs have hurt the Amgen culture. Current strategy is asking staff to do more with less. The has hurt the overall morale of the company.

    I worked at Amgen full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, if you're in the right group with people who care, you can go places. Great learning potential if you move around the company.

    Cons

    Work life balance is talked about a lot but does not exist. It matters who you know and if you don't know how to "network" and fake it, then you'll be on the next layoff list.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a long road ahead.

    I worked at Amgen as a contractor

    Pros

    Amgen is a model company that aims to offer a work-life balance, growth opportunities, and professional work environment. Moreover, the drugs and research that occurs make working at Amgen very rewarding.

    Cons

    There really are no cons I can think of about my Amgen experience. It is an excellent company that I would recommend to anyone.
