Very good people and company structure, most IT related work has been outsourced.

I worked at Amgen as a contractor for more than 8 years

Pros

Many software and hardware positions to apply for internally if you have a Bachelors degree. IT jobs through contracting agencies can be very good employment (if your department does not get outsourced).

Cons

Amgen is still undergoing layoffs, so do not expect long term employment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire quality people and provide some permanent benefits for your IT functions instead of going for the lowest bidding contracting agency.

    Pros

    Company's mission to support those grievously ill is important ... the products really help patients.

    Cons

    People insensitivity - little to no investment in human capital of any substance. very hierarchical

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Announce staff reductions - do it and get it over with. The anxiety is tough on everyone
