    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.

    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...
