No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great people and culture. Access to senior management a plus, as well as new learning opportunities. Constantly trying to create efficiencies and improvements in the way the company and the functions operate.

    Cons

    Amgen is just now working on putting into place structured career development groups. In the future, once these groups are more mature, there will be good opportunities for employees.

    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.
