Former Employee - Product Manager in Thousand Oaks, CA

I worked at Amgen full-time (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 have been working at Amgen full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Job stability, security enforced, facilities are usually well maintained, ergonomics are available.

    Cons

    Noticeable difference between Amgen Staff and what they called "Contingent workers" (contractors). Contractors are usually secluded from participating in activities (i.e...5 de Mayo fiesta and others,)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Equal Treatment for all employees no matter if they are Amgen Staff, Contractors, temps or Intern. Will promote more participation and interest from the working community

    Dynamic fast-paced but extremely political environment. Work-life Balance is only seen on paper.

    Pros

    Latest technology, very proactive in terms of process automation and improvements - great pay!

    Cons

    Extremely demanding and challenging with no time for personal life. Managements political objectives overshadow real business needs. Cutting corners to meet deadlines is a standard way of life and supersedes quality of results. No consideration of employee recommendations or complaints. Low morale is prevalent across manufacturing organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on what's right for the business in terms of quality of results and not just meeting unrealistic politically-based timelines. Listen to your front-line staff - they know what's really happening and have great ideas.
