Pros

Great pay and benefits. Outside of the upper management circles there were still a lot of great people.

Cons

Facing a severe down turn because they forgot about the science and the patients. Now its all about the bottom line and pleasing wall street.

Advice to Management

Go back to basics invest in science R&D instead of trying to pirate it from other small companies.

    Pros

    There are exceptionally talented and smart people working at Amgen. The people are genuine, interesting, and fun. The 401k is one of the top in the industry with a generous match of 5% on top of the 5% core contribution which is given prior to any matching. Also, the training is outstanding which is very helpful with skills and career development.

    Cons

    The company has undergone several reductions in force lately and this is beginning to impact the morale of the company.

    Advice to Management

    There are many things which are being done right. Execution and strategy are on track. One area to guard is the culture of Amgen- the value of employees is not being affirmed and this will impact the long-term success of Amgen.
