I have been working at Amgen full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

good people, good experience, professional place to work. Amgen's known for their generous bonuses and European-style paid time off, matching 401k, and awesome gym.

Cons

the benefits make it hard to leave. they're known as the "golden handcuffs." thousand oaks is a miserable town to live in, unless you are ready to have your white picket fence and 2.5 kids. then it's a great town to live in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

as we grow, we must expand our resources. if resources are constrained, so will growth.
