I have been working at Amgen full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

There are exceptionally talented and smart people working at Amgen. The people are genuine, interesting, and fun. The 401k is one of the top in the industry with a generous match of 5% on top of the 5% core contribution which is given prior to any matching. Also, the training is outstanding which is very helpful with skills and career development.

Cons

The company has undergone several reductions in force lately and this is beginning to impact the morale of the company.

Advice to Management

There are many things which are being done right. Execution and strategy are on track. One area to guard is the culture of Amgen- the value of employees is not being affirmed and this will impact the long-term success of Amgen.

    Pros

    Salary pay is very competitive, vacation time with shutdown is great!, Very smart people

    Cons

    Politically Challenging. Difficult upward mobility, especially if you are a Senior Manager. Constantly re-organizing IT makes it difficult to focus and execute on top initiatives. Excessive red tape, fighting through hoops to get anything accomplished. Top down directives minimizes creativity.


  2. "Good but short experience."

    Pros

    Company culture is true to "the Amgen values". Pay is great. Pipeline is looking really strong in the future.

    Cons

    Constant changes on direction from higher ups. Sales numbers/goals are often delayed. Company understanding of Primary Care setting is weak. Business unit changed leaders three times in 1.5 years. Long and very unorganized layoff.

    Advice to Management

    Be who you are. Amgen may not have been big pharma ten years ago but it sure is now.
