    I have been working at Amgen full-time

    Pros

    Work is generally satisfying and the colleagues at the contributor levels are great. Salary is fair and the benefits are competitive. With many tight deadlines, work life balance is available but not easily obtainable.

    Cons

    Some key decisions including outsourcing that were made by management several years ago has been core in contributing to the current high cost structure. Reorganization and reduction in force has been a very common management tool in the last few years and will be ongoing for many more years. Merit based career advancement does not exist. "Leadership" is a value used to be core to management but this has not been the case after many years to multiple restructuring and reorganization. Current management at many levels has been aloof on understanding the root of the issue and worst yet their individual staff contribution and performance.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to have a balanced view and understanding of the root cause to address the organization's cost structure.
