Scientific atmosphere good, job security, not so much anymore.
SENIOR SCIENTIST (Former Employee) –  Thousand Oaks, CAAugust 17, 2017
Scientific atmosphere good, job security, not so much anymore. With the layoffs occurring more and more frequently and job locations being shifted around, it is not the workplace it used to be.

A good place to work
Finance Manager (Current Employee) –  Thousand Oaks, CAAugust 16, 2017
The work is abundant so one must work smarter. The jobs have moved out of the country and recently out of state. There is a great divide in the perks depending on which building you are in.
Pros
Gym and many cafes in the lot
Cons
Too many layoffs in the past years

Good products... Changing culture
Marketing Strategy Manager (Former Employee) –  Thousand Oaks, CAAugust 11, 2017
Amgen has a good pipeline, decent pay and benefits. It has gone from being a innovative biotech to feeling more like big pharma. Not bad... Just different. You will work hard and a good amount of hours. However, don't expect to get promoted internally. The company has flattened considerably and will recruit leadership externally. Many colleagues have left for career advancement.
Pros
Good benefits and decent pay
Cons
Unclear career succession

Clinical QC Associate (Current Employee) –  Thousand Oaks, CAAugust 5, 2017
Great if you are a full-time employee, but those can be hard to get if you don't know someone that currently works there. Connections are everything, otherwise they hire up from contractors.

Commercial Leadership Summer Intern (Former Employee) –  Thousand Oaks, CAJuly 29, 2017
The company has gone through much change since I was there. At the time, they were struggling with gaining product approvals and cashflow was getting tighter. New CEO now in place. Corporate campus was beautiful, coworkers were supportive, collaborative and represented talent from across top pharma and biotech companies.

Amazing Benefits but frequent RIF and hit or miss management.
Senior Associate, Attribute Sciences (Current Employee) –  Thousand Oaks, CAJuly 27, 2017
Great place to work that provides top notch benefits. Best opportunities for advancement, as well as best management, lie outside of the Quality Control department. There seem to be regular layoffs/RIFs every few years, which can lead to worry about job security. These are not based on performance, but rather business need, so one can be blindsided.
