    I worked at Amgen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues, good benefits, lots of autonomy, chances to travel

    Cons

    In recent years I feel that the scientific mission of Amgen has given way to a “follow the money” attitude. The company is now definitely being run by the money men and the old motto of “science first” seems to be forgotten

    Advice to Management

    Remember your roots; and remember that your people are your best asset - not a “resource” to be cut

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Amgen (Cambridge, East of England, England) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through an agency, and had an initial screening call with HR,, followed by call from the hiring manager. It was a brief and friendly call. Then finally a face-to-face on-site interview, with three people, followed immediately by a HR call interview. The panelists were nice, and a bit on the edge so I did feel that there might be a bit of stress and tension within the group.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were both on technical procedures and also competence based. As this was an audit role, the importance of being able to handle push backs and conflicts was emphasized upon, and the ability to work under pressure. the team was very friendly and at no point did the process make me uncomfortable   1 Answer
