I worked at Amgen as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

- I learned a lot
- I worked with some great people
- Excellent work/life balance

Cons

- Not enough oversight on corporate initiatives
- Moving production facilities overseas cuts down on available jobs in the US

Advice to ManagementAdvice

New initiatives for increased efficiency are definitely good but they need to fit together better (i.e. one access portal for all efficiency programs and shared metrics).
