    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 Management

    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 Management

    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.
