    Pros

    Good pay and great benefits. The flexible hours are a nice benefit for many people. Amgen is a company that has done well in an industry that has seen a lot of failures.

    Cons

    The environment is very political and it is harder to get basic things done than it should be. There is a lot of churn and inefficiency due to unclear lines of authority and decision-making. Too many policies and processes and too much policing. It often feels like there are more people looking for what's wrong than ways to make it right.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing that they have not already heard
