      Passive Aggressive Hunger Games...

      Pros

      Many good people. Collaborative. Excellent benefits.

      Cons

      Highly politicized. Departmental infighting. Distinction of who's in the "circle of trust" and who is not. That distinction is made based on factionalism. It's very weird. I spent many years at another major pharma and Amgen's culture is unnecessarily political. In the commercial world, there are two successful segments of employees: 1) Those who used to work at BMS 2) Those who are sycophants. There is actually no interest in robust debate to get to an objectively good answer! The debates only serve the purpose of confirming the commercial leadership's already held belief. The funny thing is that I don't know why BMS is even considered best practice in the industry (at Amgen). It is at best, no better than other major pharma. It is becoming more and more BMS-West.
