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

Pros

Smart scientists, great benefits, hard work.

Cons

No vision, inability to stick with a plan, management override of team descisions so you get no where, obsession with minutia.

Advice to Management

Have a plan anad stick with it until you get somewhere and create a workplace where there is an even playing field. Either everyone works hard or everyone enjoys the country club lifestyle.

    I worked at Amgen full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Support advancement when it is earned and makes sense. Good team support of projects big or small and reasonable assignment of resources.

    Cons

    Glacial trying to get a new project approved or a capex purchase made. Even though once its doneit can be done on an almost unlimited scale the approval process is too long.

    Advice to Management

    Form and inter-department committee to regularly review what each department is doing. This way the right hand will know what the left hand is doing.


  2. "Good internship"

    Pros

    Laid back environment, 9-5 days, the center of the company is its gym.

    Can be too laid back, sometimes the atmosphere is like living in a cult

    Advice to Management

    Ask the employees what they think about things every once in a while.
