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

Pros

Great facility (good food, gym, nice outdoor space). Smart people, variety of workers(diversity), many standard procedures in place.

Cons

Many changes in managers make it difficult for employees to have a sense of stability. Some poor managers make if difficult for employees.

Advice to Management

Make sure your people managers are trained in how to lead people to get the best results from staff. Start listening to your staff.

    I worked at Amgen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of time off, there is a summer and winter week long shutdown.
    Nice on-site gym
    Decent benefits, especially 401k

    Cons

    Lots of corporate politics, some people enjoy this stuff I guess, I can't stand it
    Not much interesting work in IS, just following procedures to the letter. Again, some people like this, so if you do, then this would be a pro
