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

Pros

A chance to make real impact on the lives of grievously ill people. Very good benefits, including company shut down the first week of July and the last week of December.

Cons

The company is overloaded at the levels of director and above with too many people who spend time meeting, talking, lunching, dining, and interfering with real work. (There are a few notable exceptions.) Most people below these levels are very dedicated professionals.

Advice to Management

Be vigilant and skeptical with senior people describing themselves and their work with profuse superlatives.

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

    Pros

    Did not experience any pros during my brief experience).

    Cons

    The acquisition was painful and they missed out on some good opportunities to make it better. I was utterly unimpressed with their HR team.

    I worked at Amgen as an intern

    Pros

    Good learning and training experience; offered the best compensation package for interns.

    Cons

    It's more of a training opportunity, not a future-full-time directed internship. No entry-level full-time hiring intention in the department. I have to look for other opportunities though I really want to work for this company.
