Former Employee - Summer Intern in Thousand Oaks, CA

I worked at Amgen as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Summer internship was an excellent opportunity to explore the pharmaceutical industry. We were each assigned summer projects which we presented upon the end of our 3 months. This paid internship also includes summer housing, car rental, gym membership, and fun extracurricular events (surfing, baseball games, kayaking, etc.). Many opportunities to network with executive level employees . Excellent Executive (C-Level) Speaker Series.

Cons

None. After completing the summer internship program, many interns were presented with full-time offers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Excellent salary, awesome benefits, great culture of science based decision makers throughout the company, work in great teams of diverse backgrounds. Made life long friends there

    Cons

    Can be very slow to make key decisions, started to really down size or "reaching Amgen's full potential" as they call it, 3 lay- off's in 5 years at the Colorado site operations,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Far too many excellent workers losing there jobs to overseas operations to save money.

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

    Pros

    Amgen has great pay, benefits, and overall compensation. Amgen is very fair in time off. There is a payed summer and winter break, plus your overall vacation and personal sick time.

    Cons

    The company has a global manufacturing focus so the amount of production opportunities in the US has dramatically declined over the past few years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Moving to contractors for manufacturing for biologic medicines has a very high risk since these drugs demand a high level of skill and understanding to manufacture. Contractors put your drugs quality and safety at risk.
