I have been working at Amgen full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

patients first- make products that have a huge positive impact on people's lives. Everyone knows someone who takes an Amgen product and has great things to say about them. Truly a patient-first company. Great benefits, vacation, holiday packages can't be beat. Fun work environment.

Cons

Competitive, sometimes cut-throat culture- sometimes very stressful. Limited opportunities for advancement. Limited forgiveness for mistakes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Help to keep the workplace fun- sometimes gets too intense and cut-throat.

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

    Pros

    The campus is quite beautiful.

    Cons

    Very poor culture for contract workers. There is a general lack of respect for contracted employees. I am very good at my job and am taking my knowledge and experience elsewhere. After so many years (7+) of giving the highest level of service, I am leaving to preserve my self respect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house. There are far too many FTEs with little to no productivity. I would bet good money that my work is credited to FTEs on Performance Evaluations.
