I have been working at Amgen

Pros

Great vacation, great bonus, great benefits, opportunites are abundant for people who are willing to work for them - you really can't beat the 401k contribution, vacation time, and bonus percentage - great company despite cut backs and downsizing.

Cons

Certain departments are hirarchechal and in my experience, promotions are few and far between - but, if you're willing to take lateral moves and work hard, you'll get to where you want to go.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The benefits, vacation, 401, and set Amgen apart from other companies - take these things away and Amgen will be like every other company out there....the bennies are what retain the staff!

    I worked at Amgen

    Pros

    benefits are good. time off and medical as well as onsite gym and many caferias and a beautiful campus with a great setting

    Cons

    advancement is limited. the company has gotten big and there is too much competition to move ahead. many people take too much advantage of the gym leaving others to do the work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take a look at the efficiencies and reward the people who do great work. there are many of them but will leave if not happy.
