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

Pros

Great people, culture, benefits. Beautiful campus, especially the newer buildings

Cons

Sometimes you get stuck working in areas that aren't exactly your first choice and sometimes its hard to get out of that position. Sometimes people are moved around to different groups and never get a good amount of experience in any one area due to the constant moving that is needed by the business.

Advice to Management

Look at the history of employees and if their history with the company shows that they have been moved around a lot and you are about to move them, you should ask them if they want to move and maybe think about moving someone else so that the person may stay in a position for once, and get enough experience to do some good, especially if its someone who has already previously been moved around a lot.

    Pros

    Women get promoted over men. Is that really a positive?

    Cons

    ...so much so that there is a glass ceiling for MEN as a result of overblown reverse discrimination....whereby women are considered a minority group to be promoted over men

    Advice to Management

    There should be at least a 1:1 ratio between men and women in Director + positions, wouldn't you think? There isn't.
