    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.

    Great compensation and benefits. Although I predict the grass may not be as green in the future.

    I have been working at Amgen full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Outstanding area in which to live. The perks - nice gym and day care.

    Cons

    The Yes man rules here. Feedback is welcomed just as long as it is aligned with what the boss wants to hear. Performance not equitable across organization. Too many distractions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revisit the Amgen values. Management has lost touch with the culture and values that produced greatness. Practice what you preach!
