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

    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.

    I worked at Amgen full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company still pays bonus and RSU for FTEs.

    Cons

    Laying off FTEs almost every other month in the past 6 months that I am aware of, and the company hires contractors for those positions.

    Advice to Management

    I don't think that strategy is good for the company in the long run.
