Former Employee - Medical Affairs Intern in Thousand Oaks, CA

I worked at Amgen as an intern for less than a year

Pros

The largest biotechnology company in Southern California with strong pipeline products. Upper management receptive to one on one meetings with interns. Great opportunity to network with industry professionals. Interns were provided with deskspace, company laptop, and phone extension. Allowed to make your own hours as long as you got your work done.

Cons

Difficult to move up the corporate ladder from manager to senior manager to director in the medical affairs department. Wish I could have contributed more to meaningful projects

    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.
