good company, great benefits, awesome patient first- focus. limited opportunities to move up

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

Prospatients 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementHelp to keep the workplace fun- sometimes gets too intense and cut-throat.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
