I worked at Amgen full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Amgen pays great and is very focused on staff wellness, development and work/life balance. Once it was a great company to work for and the feeling of collaboration was unmatched. The environment was one that allowed staff to grow and succeed.

Cons

Amgen has steadily been outsourcing every possible function within the company and contingent workers are not treated with the same regard as full time employees. Even staff having transitioned to CW positions are suddenly "less than" and Amgen is sure to make sure that CW's are aware of their status. The recent leadership changes have created a cutthroat corporation, focused only on the bottom dollar rather than a company that has a genuine concern for staff.

Advice to Management

Stop outsourcing - it's killing company morale.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits and their commitment to quality.

    Cons

    Don't expect development, promotion opportunities. There aren't any. All new workers are now contract workers for positions that aren't even offered to current employees.

    Advice to Management

    Make decisions and get the right people in the job who know how to manage people.
