    I worked at Amgen full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible work environment
    Very highly educated people - are large percentage has either a PHD or a Masters and come from the best universities of US
    2 week shutdown - summer and winter
    almost 2 month in holidays, vacations and shutdown
    Great Benefits
    Relaxed work environment - business casual dress code

    Cons

    Technical role with more business management than programming
    Baby sitting contactors
    Your skills become rusty
    Difficult to get into top Tech firms such as Google and Microsoft because their environment is highly technical, challeging which Amgen lacks
    9000 dollars in yearly education which got reduced recently due to budget cuts
    you never know when you will get fired.
    Lot of waste of money in cancelled projects halfway through.
    Difficult to advance once you become a Sr. Manager

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
