Sr. Documentation Management Services Associate (Former Employee) –  West Greenwich, RIApril 17, 2018
Amgen is a fast pace company to work for but when you leave for the day you feel like you accomplished a great deal of work for that day. The people are friendly and the management team are respectful and helpful in helping you reach your goals in the company.

Great work, heavy use of contractors
Training Specialist, Contractor (Former Employee) –  Thousand Oaks, CAApril 16, 2018
I have worked for Amgen on 3 separate assignments for a total of 7 years. The environment is wonderful (even more so for full-time staff) and the pay is the highest I received from any contract work that I have done. Although I have always done well there and am frequently hired back, it is extremely difficult to make the transition from consultant to full-time employee.
Pros
Wonderful atmosphere, team-based and collaborative
Cons
excessive meetings, heavy use of consultants vs full-time staff

Risk adverse, conservative company
Principal Scientist (Former Employee) –  Thousand Oaks, CAApril 12, 2018
After working in a smaller innovative biotech company for 9 years, the experience at Amgen was rather disappointing. It was difficult to pursue innovative thinking as the company was very risk adverse. As with most large companies, change was difficult to implement and took time.

Senior Specialty Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMApril 10, 2018
It is a good job if you are a robot and can just work then go home. Too many people trying to step on you trying to get to the top. Too many people trying to take credit for YOUR work. Too many people NOT playing by the rules. Too many RULES.
Pros
Good Pay and Benefits
Cons
Sucks the life out of you

Great facility in Seattle
Senior Scientist (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAApril 3, 2018
Now an Expedia cube-farm, Amgen moved operations over to Singapore, China and back down to Thousand Oaks leaving hundreds of scientist and associates who did amazing work moving or asked to leave the company. The facility was built for Immunex, Amgen acquired Immunex and in 2014, in about 10 years, they closed it.

Overall I have been at Amgen for over 15 years and I am grateful for the time I have had here. I believe that Amgen as a company is still a great company to work for although many people are displeased about it growing up into a real enterprise.

I really liked the people I worked with. Amgen is company that cares about their employees. I only left because of layoffs and impending site closure which didn’t end up happening.
