I worked at Amgen full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Amgen provides an excellent compensation and benefits package, the working environment is excellent in general with some notable exceptions, and the company provides extensive employee development training opportunities. The Amgen campus is ideally located in Thousand Oaks, which has great weather, excellent schools, and a safe environment.

Cons

Career path opportunities are limited and advancement is often driven by politics. Numerous inefficiencies and multiple layers of bureaucracy are prevalent; management decisions are often arbitrary. Far too many unproductive meetings.

Advice to Management

A career path with opportunities for advancement, particularly for R&D needs to be in place. Reduce the heavy middle management positions and develop a fair and equitable system for promotions that reduces the politics.

    Managers should stop focusing so much on managing up and their own careers and start leading and managing the employees who are actually doing the work and dedicated to growing the business.
