Marketing Strategy Manager (Former Employee) – Thousand Oaks, CA – August 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.

Commercial Leadership Summer Intern (Former Employee) – Thousand Oaks, CA – July 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, CA – July 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.
Market specific products to specialty specific providers Product specific Great Leadership Culture for advancement Access to only specific small number of providers The intrinsic value i bring to providers and hence their patients
Executive Assistant, (Contractor) (Former Employee) – Thousand Oaks, CA – July 19, 2017
I loved working at Amgen. The facility was an environment that promoted employee growth as well and employee health. On job site they provided a gym and promoted physical well-being. They provided Childcare on site so you can be close to your children. Overall it was a great place to work.
