  10. "Best Place I Have Ever Worked - But let’s work on promotions"

    5.0
     

    I have been working at Amgen

    Pros

    Amgen offers everything you could possibly want out of a company. There is immense room for growth, so many different& interesting areas to get involved in outside of your role, an amazing culture, excellent benefits and work life balance (including winter and summer shutdowns, 3 weeks Vacation on top of that, 2 weeks sick time, even volunteer hours... 401k you get 15% for contributing only 5% of your salary and restricted stock units granted every year on top of your bonus). The work we do is truly saving lives... I especially appreciate how Amgen re-focuses our perspective regularly and will bring in patients to tell their personal stories. I am so grateful for this experience.

    Cons

    Some individuals tend to value doctorate degrees over real, scientific experience. They also look down upon engineers... It’s really a bummer for the culture. Promotions are also pretty slow... causing us to lose top talent to other companies.
