I worked at Amgen full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Amgen pays great and is very focused on staff wellness, development and work/life balance. Once it was a great company to work for and the feeling of collaboration was unmatched. The environment was one that allowed staff to grow and succeed.

Cons

Amgen has steadily been outsourcing every possible function within the company and contingent workers are not treated with the same regard as full time employees. Even staff having transitioned to CW positions are suddenly "less than" and Amgen is sure to make sure that CW's are aware of their status. The recent leadership changes have created a cutthroat corporation, focused only on the bottom dollar rather than a company that has a genuine concern for staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop outsourcing - it's killing company morale.

    I worked at Amgen full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Still doing great things to change the quality of lives for people with terrible diseases. Some of the smartest people you will ever find.

    Cons

    Opportunities to advance in management are now limited. They tend to like to hire from the outside. Outsourcing has killed the culture that Amgen was founded and their success built.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to real workers and stop building a culture of 'yes' people who are afraid to take risks.
