I worked at Amgen full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Good work/life balance, haven't seen a company with better benefits, onsite gym and daycare. If you know the right people, fairly easy to move around the company.

Cons

Promotions seem to be based more on who you know than your accomplishments, although that's not uncommon elsewhere. Culture has shifted to cost cutting a few years back.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to focus on creativity and making employees happy, and not so focused on juicing the stock price - although I don't mind stock price going up.

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

    Pros

    Amgen is a great place to work. The people are what makes it great. Eveyone is willing to go above and beyond what is required of them to get the job done. Amgen also has outstanding benefits.

    Cons

    Amgen seems to have an large amount of VPs for a company it's size. But not many job growth opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure that the employees are valued and provide more opportunities for career growth. It's very disheartening for emplyees to be told that their are no jobs available however it seems like a new VP is hired or promoted weekly.

    I worked at Amgen

    Pros

    Great facilities and good compensation & benefits. Very talented employees across the organization.

    Cons

    Very politically charged environment at the senior management level. Culture does not promote decision-making at lower management levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Soften the politics and focus on creating a satisfying and enjoyable environment for the employees. That will push them to give the extra mile.
