Amgen offers staff members a Total Rewards package, which includes competitive base pay and bonus opportunities, excellent benefits, an outstanding work environment and the chance to grow, both financially and professionally.
2 shutdowns in summer and winter
401k match, summer and Christmas shutdown, cafeteria and the Amgym!
Benefits are good but have declined over last several years due to increased health care costs. Recently switched from Aetna to Anthem Blue Shield. Finding time to take vacation days is challenging.
Up and Down, but Vacation and 2 weeks paid Shut down is unmatched by most companies
Great 401 K. Company contribution is 10% of base pay plus cash bonus! Excellent health, Dental and Eye care. Best in class technically. At the forefront of the latest in Science & Technology.
Best 401k in the industry
The benefits package is amazing, 401(k) match, health vision and dental, full gym on site as well as two week-long shutdowns during the year.
401k is not just good or great, it is top 5 of any company in any industry. Company automatically contributes 5% and then matches you up to 5% more. So a 5% individual contribution gets added to a 10% company contribution. And it vests immediately. For those fortunate to make above the IRS cap, Amgen also has a supplemental retirement account so you can continue to accrue 10% benefit. Vacation is also industry leading. One week total company shutdowns for the July 4th and Christmas breaks. Plus an extra 3 weeks of vacation which increases with time of service. Plus a generous allotment of sick/personal days. Healthcare has gotten slightly less generous but every company is going through this. The fact that people working here (in the healthcare industry) can’t understand this basic fact is astonishing. When I got to dr offices or pharmacies, they are impressed at how good our coverage is...
best things - 401k and vacation paid time off
It's less than a year
