I worked at Amgen as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Incredibly great internship! Well charted out project,truly knowledgeable colleagues and a great work environment.
- Collaborative work culture
- Wonderful work/life balance
- Challenging work
- Lots to learn

Cons

No specific cons,really. The Thousand Oaks location is huge and that maybe a con for some,if working at a large office campus is not your preference. But overall,great work environment!

Advice to Management

Some of the finest management folks I have ever met. Very open,very supporting,very encouraging! I hope to be as humble and competent as them in my career.

    I have been working at Amgen full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great products and strong pipeline. Great pay and benefits. Good food, nice facilities, bright people (the ones who actually do the hands-on work =30%)

    Cons

    Relentless AML (Puerto Rico) Management resolve to ship product no matter what. If you go there to work make sure you go for a management position (giving orders), not for an individual contributor position (taking orders and doing the hard work). Low morale. Corporate Hypocrisy at its best.

    Advice to Management

    Balance better work distribution (70% of employees telling what to do and criticizing and 30% of employees doing the hard work and keeping the business rolling). Shift your focus from company financials to patient safety. Get rid of your unfair evaluation system where 10% of the hard working employees have to get bad evaluations to save compensation money.

    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.
