I worked at Amgen full-time (more than 10 years)

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Amgen

    Pros

    Company culture is true to "the Amgen values". Pay is great. Pipeline is looking really strong in the future.

    Cons

    Constant changes on direction from higher ups. Sales numbers/goals are often delayed. Company understanding of Primary Care setting is weak. Business unit changed leaders three times in 1.5 years. Long and very unorganized layoff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be who you are. Amgen may not have been big pharma ten years ago but it sure is now.
