I have been working at Amgen full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Benefits and pay are in the top of our industry.
401k match is amazing and a lot of paid leave.
Atmosphere used to be better, although is still great. Attitudes are generally positive in the work place and open communication is generally accepted.

Cons

Benefits have slowly reduced (although still great)
Atmosphere is much more competitive due to less positions available in the last few years.
Workload has increased significantly as hiring of new staff is slow to respond to demand for work.

Advice to Management

Better analysis of hiring needs. Work slack from lack of hiring for positions is being taken in by compromising work/life balance with existing staff.

    I have been working at Amgen full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are good; very good 401k matching; relatively smart people to work with; variety of possible career paths

    Cons

    This place is a bit dysfunctional at the moment following recent re-org; Fairly noticeable shift in culture as old Sr. Mgmt flushed out and replaced with new ones. They struggle to make any decision...lots of swirl before a strategy is finally selected.

    I have been working at Amgen full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are competitive.
    Location is desirable for families and because of weather, but there are no other companies in the industry within 50 miles.
    Name recognition can be helpful in pursuit of other jobs.
    Many nice people sill work at the company.

    Cons

    Unethical conduct
    Management looking out for #1
    Lack of career development and no attempt to improve the situation despite 4 years of negative feedback from staff.
    Disinterest in staff as human beings
    Focus on bottom line and process, not on quality or patients

    Advice to Management

    Find your moral compass
    Do what is right for your staff and for patients
