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

    Pros

    Laid back environment, competitive pay, wonderful geographical location

    Cons

    Company has financial results dependent on just a few products protected by patents, which will eventually expire. New blockbuster drugs are not that easy to come up with anymore. As a result of the current patent protection, company struggles with a very relaxed approach to business.

    Advice to Management

    Make it a professional company as if it had cut throat competition in the market place.
