Featured Review

Former Employee - Senior Bio-Pharmaceutical Sales Representative

I worked at Amgen full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great benefits. 401k is an industry leader. Stock options are pretty good too. Company car options for reps are DSM/RSD level options at other pharma companies.

Cons

There is opportunity for promotion within the sales role (ACT I, II, III) however, any other opportunities (i.e marketing) would require a move to California.
