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.
