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

Pros

It has great benefits in their retirement plan and then have a great matching 401K plan

Advice to Management

Ask the people who do the job what need to change. And really listen to they.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Amgen as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, beautiful campus, excellent break areas

    Cons

    Doing the same work as full-time employees without the benefits or potential of being hired full-time.

    Advice to Management

    Consider hiring your contract workers. We work hard only to be told after a couple of months to look for another job.

    I have been working at Amgen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful campus, good pay and benefits, great relocation benefits, a young company that tends toward forward thinking

    Cons

    No job security - continual reductions in force and job insecurity. A lot of positions are being contracted out, I would guess at least 50% of the work force at the Thousand Oaks campus are contracted employees. Work life balance can be hard to achieve - the more positions lost, the more we are expected to "do more with less", but no assistance or guidance on how to make it happen is given, just an ever increasing work load.Upper management sheds work to direct reports and can often give little guidance/have unrealistic expectations

    Advice to Management

    You are losing value added employees because of the constant uncertainty/instability. Restructuring the company is a good idea, but the way it is being done will result in a great cost.
