Amgen IS Business Analyst Review

IS Business Analyst (Former Employee) Thousand Oaks, CA (US)

ProsReally smart, hardworking, busy people
Silicon-valley type benefits for southern cal
Technology-heavy work environment

ConsLast few years mgmt has been heavy-handed with cost-cutting. People with 10-15 years tenure were let go with a few hours notice.
No visibility to mgmt decision-making.
Bottom-line is the stock price. So watch your back and keep a step-ahead of layoffs.

Advice to Senior ManagementShort-sighted decision-making, with advice fed by management consultants is harming the morale and loyalty of employees

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
