Pros

Great products and a great pipeline.

Cons

Senior management claims to be transparent, but they're not.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop trying to turn us into Pfizer. We're the leader in biologics, it's time to stop bench marking ourselves against the competition and start creating our own benchmarks.

    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Thousand Oaks, CA

    I have been working at Amgen full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Competent, committed, competitive co-workers at every level make going to work every day a joy. Interaction with various functions and levels feels like your in a flat organization and not in the world's largest biotech.

    Cons

    Poor life-cycle management strategies have led to cut backs and tension among those who work at Amgen. Many times, senior executives are unable to disclose information about Company initiatives that may directly effect middle management and their staff. Promotions and career advancement is difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share as much as you can without putting the Company at a competitive disadvantage. Evaluate performance from a variety of perspectives.
