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

Pros

Brilliant employees, stimulating water cooler conversations, culture (less now than previous years), outstanding benefits, opportunities to try something new, beautiful main campus, inspiring mission.

Cons

Change, change and a lot more changes on top of each other without regard to impact on staff morale, sustainability, or work-life balance. Very limited promotion opportunities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn from your mistakes, don't ignore Amgen's past experiences, truly listen to staff at all levels (not just communicate survey results with no real change). Consider staff retention as a cost saving devise.

    A lot of hype

    I worked at Amgen as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Company name and product deliverables

    Cons

    All the glam and benefits are only for full time employees. They treat contract/temps as second class citizens despite professional experience. Company intranet sites are blocked so they can't view full time employee perks.

    Striving to keep sight of patients and science while accelerating growth in a changing health care world.

    Pros

    People: Smart, inquiring, caring, committed. You learn something new every day, some of it better than sci-fi.
    Benefits. This company takes care of its own. Support staff like HR, Comp, Payroll give an unbelievable level of individual support for a company this size.
    Cost discipline.

    Cons

    Sense of instability: "What's next?" Some staff concerned that the company is trying to move TOO fast...
