    I have been working at Amgen full-time

    Pros

    Incredibly intelligent workforce, ability to make a difference to others by delivering important medicines, good pay and benefits

    Cons

    Lack of career development, and poor decision making ability of management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to make timely decisions, and execute upon those decisions. Being risk-adverse is not always the 'right' choice
