Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Amgen as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Numerous benefits and perks for permanent employees. Coworkers are amicable and intelligent. Laid-back workday with many challenges and opportunities to learn.

Cons

Pervasive and growing use of contingent staff for core company functions. These "disposable workers" perform the same functions as permanent employees, yet have zero job security and lack even the most basic benefits such as sick pay and health insurance.

Advice to Management

Think about the long-term effects of substituting permatemps for real employees. What do you suppose this does for morale and company loyalty?
