    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.

    I worked at Amgen

    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
