About Amgen

The Amgen Difference

About Us

Amgen is committed to unlocking the potential of biology for patients suffering from serious illnesses by discovering, developing, manufacturing and delivering innovative human therapeutics. This approach begins by using tools like advanced human genetics to unravel the complexities of disease and understand the fundamentals of human biology.
Our belief—and the core of our strategy—is that innovative, highly differentiated medicines that provide large clinical benefits in addressing serious diseases are medicines that will not only help patients, but also will help reduce the social and economic burden of disease in society today.
Amgen focuses on areas of high unmet medical need and leverages its expertise to strive for solutions that improve health outcomes and dramatically improve people's lives. A biotechnology innovator since 1980, Amgen has grown to be one of the world's leading independent biotechnology companies, has reached millions of patients around the world and is developing a pipeline of medicines with breakaway potential.

Mission: To Serve Patients

At Amgen, our mission—to serve patients—drives all that we do. This sense of shared purpose has allowed us to become one of the world’s leading biotechnology companies as we continue to launch new medicines at unprecedented rates and reach millions of patients worldwide.
We collaborate with world-class talent, utilize the industry’s largest toolkit of modalities, and leverage industry-leading partnerships and state-of-the-art technology to develop new processes and products that can turn the tide of serious, life-interrupting illnesses.
As a values-based organization, we aim to make a positive impact on the world. From investments in education to inspire future generations of scientists, to rewarding our colleagues with robust family-centered and inclusive benefits for all, we believe in making a difference in the lives of our patients, staff and communities.

Diversity & Inclusion

A diverse and inclusive workforce empowers us to innovate and better represent our patients through our work. We continue to build a community of belonging that will spark the innovation required to help our diverse team members thrive, strengthen our global capabilities, and advance our ability to serve patients.

Partnerships, Community, and Engagement

We continue to seek out new and meaningful ways to engage with our patients, partners and communities. We are closely involved with the National Black MBA Association and the National Sales Network. And we are proud to be a partner to the Management Leadership for Tomorrow, member of the California Black Chamber of Commerce, sponsor of the Secretary of Defense Corporate Fellows Program, and more.

Service, Mission, Pride

A call to help others and impact lives for the better. These are but a few of the many powerful reasons that veterans excel and lead at Amgen.
