    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Amgen full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lots of paid holidays, vacation days, and a great 401k

    Cons

    Management consists of young MBA types that are afraid of saying anything but yes. Through layoff after layoff, more work gets piled on and more useless contractors come on board.

    Advice to Management

    Quit and bring back the old management. Oh, and dig up your old copy of the Amgen values.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Amgen as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, beautiful campus, excellent break areas

    Cons

    Doing the same work as full-time employees without the benefits or potential of being hired full-time.

    Advice to Management

    Consider hiring your contract workers. We work hard only to be told after a couple of months to look for another job.
