Current Intern - Undergrad Finance Intern in Thousand Oaks, CA

I have been working at Amgen as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

Great people, great benefits, entire campus is closed for 1 week for 4th of July, wonderful learning experiences and mentors who really want to help.

Gym, food, services (dry-cleaning, rental cars, etc.) all on campus!

Cons

Somewhat far away and in its own little bubble

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give people within company the ability to rise through the ranks instead of constantly hiring from the outside and demoralizing morale of long-time employees

    Current Employee - Associate Scientist in Seattle, WA

    I have been working at Amgen full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Management is flexible about time off. Compensation is good for all positions. Bonus has maintained 10% of pay for the last ten years. The Amgen Seattle campus is gorgeous, situated on Elliott Bay. Many good scientists are attracted to work for the company.

    Cons

    Near constant reorganization of departments gives a sense that leadership cannot make clear decisions. Benefits have waned over the last several years. Morale has been in the basement. Recent efforts to restructure have dragged on for nearly a year with no action. Bench scientists and other technical workers are steadily being replaced by contract workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The mantra that cheaper is better has been going on for way too long. If cuts need to be made, do it with some efficiency then work on morale of all those who make the cut.
