I worked at Amgen as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Incredibly great internship! Well charted out project,truly knowledgeable colleagues and a great work environment.
- Collaborative work culture
- Wonderful work/life balance
- Challenging work
- Lots to learn

Cons

No specific cons,really. The Thousand Oaks location is huge and that maybe a con for some,if working at a large office campus is not your preference. But overall,great work environment!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Some of the finest management folks I have ever met. Very open,very supporting,very encouraging! I hope to be as humble and competent as them in my career.

    I have been working at Amgen full-time (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.
