Featured Review

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Amgen full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Second to none benefits I've seen. Two weeks out of the year are in shutdown and do not take any of your own PTO. Everyone is always willing to help and very professional. Respects our decision to... work from home if able to.

Cons

Sometimes work can be overloaded, but still manageable.
