Current Employee - Senior Scientist in Thousand Oaks, CA

I have been working at Amgen full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Corporate value #1 is "Be Science-Based" and for the most part it is not just lip-service. Very good compensation, health, and 401k plans. Lots of vacation with 2 weeks official shut-down in addition to personal vacation allotment. Upper management team seems really excellent since new CEO.

Cons

Big organization where sometimes the right hand doesn't know what the left is doing. Corporate emphasis on improving decision-making still has a way to go. Too many meetings.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be sure to keep "Be Science-Based" at the forefront. Otherwise, keep pushing the decision-making improvements.

    A very good place to work, as long as your site is favored by upper management.

    Pros

    Amgen has fantastic people, uses innovative technologies, is constantly trying to improve, and has a strong ethical base from which it helps as many patients as possible. I have nothing bad to say about the company.

    Challenging environment - very busy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember your staff that helped get yo9u where you are today - do not become obsessed with the bottom line
