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.
