    Pros

    Love the company.
    Great management
    Flexible hours
    Great people
    Beautiful Campus

    Cons

    Over 50% of the workforce is contract

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe scale back the benefit package just a bit so the company can actually have full time employees that last and can be proud to be part of the Amgen family instead of a revolving door of contractors

    Pros

    Amgen is finally moving(slowly be it) with industries standards.

    Cons

    Workload, work–life balance and senior management's reluctance to identify burnout! It is not uncommon for an entire group to be working on a sunday.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop sitting around pontificating, instead get out of your ivory tower to network with other big pharma/biotech colleagues. Processes should be implemented to work smarter not harder.
