I have been working at Amgen as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Great people, great benefits, entire campus is closed for 1 week for 4th of July, wonderful learning experiences and mentors who really want to help.

Gym, food, services (dry-cleaning, rental cars, etc.) all on campus!

Cons

Somewhat far away and in its own little bubble

Advice to Management

Give people within company the ability to rise through the ranks instead of constantly hiring from the outside and demoralizing morale of long-time employees

    Pros

    Company's mission to support those grievously ill is important ... the products really help patients.

    Cons

    People insensitivity - little to no investment in human capital of any substance. very hierarchical

    Advice to Management

    Announce staff reductions - do it and get it over with. The anxiety is tough on everyone

    I have been working at Amgen full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Initial offer was fair market value.

    Cons

    Ever since the buyout, all of the good people are leaving. No work life balance support from management. The politics and backstabbing can be overwhelming. There is little to no direction at the Director & VP levels. When a decision is made and you as the employee implements, you are the target of all attacks, and not backed at all by the same management making the decisions. The majority of people who attack you have no idea what they are doing. Upper Management provides no training and will change your job at whim without even asking your opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Provide direction and make decisions. Stand by your employees. Support your employees and they will be more productive and happy.
