Career Advancement Opportunities All Around--If You Work Hard
Director (Former Employee) – Thousand Oaks, CA – March 19, 2019
Amgen is a large global biotechnology company that has its share of "big pharma" challenges: Political in-fighting over resources, restrictive budgets that impose obstacles to planning, slow-moving decision-making, too many unhelpful meetings, regional teams that do not want to follow the "global" rules, and upper management that does not truly delegate to its team members on "important" decisions.
So that means it is successful--it is a growing company with a robust pipeline; a global company operating in over 120 countries; and at the forefront of pricing and reimbursement conversations as it takes on the political headwinds.
All of this means the company has needs for smart, hard-working, creative, and patient team members. Most of all, collaboration --despite how slowly process moves--is a skill required for success.
