I have been working at Amgen full-time (More than 3 years)

Great company to work for. Salary and bonus structure make it difficult to ever want to leave.

Cons

Very hard to move up in company. Company thinks employees should do many lateral moves before trying to move up.

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

    Pros

    Well known to be best-in-class for benefits, Amgen is a great place to work for those who truly care about contributing at their workplace on a daily basis. The company requires foresightedness and maturity of its employees.

    Cons

    As a large company, Amgen has many of the trappings of size (e.g. slower decision making, heirarchy, work process complexities).

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to be proactive and considerate of your staff - and thank you for a great experience.

    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.
