    I worked at Amgen full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic 401K matching, reasonable health benefits
    Mid-year and end of year weeklong shutdowns, generous vacation and PTO
    ESPP program, bonuses and stock

    Cons

    Really need to work out of Thousand Oaks to be effective
    Too many long term contractors that are kept on for misguided loyalty, not skill

    Advice to Management

    I can only speak to the Digital Health group, which recently underwent a large reorganization, which impacted just about everyone on the team (new role or laid off). I'm sure there is a method to the madness, but right now your employees feel lost and confused. Spend some effort to rebuild relationships and trust.
