Very nice place to work!

The culture of the work place is built up upon respect and supporting each other. The work load can get heavy sometimes, but always you would find someone to help. Pay is not the best, but benefits are good!

Well-structured solid company. Great learning opportunity.

I was exposed to many different projects with cross-functional teams with opportunities to develop expertise on different process/systems. Knowledgeable personnel. Well planned transitions to incorporate new platforms, and overall focus on productivity and improvement. Surveys are taken seriously and there is a good sense of collaboration being the key to success.


Great people, never boring

Average biotech

Amgen stop innovating new medicines in house, the CEO prefer to spend money on adquisitions. We became a big pharma company and the culture can be toxic some time.

Full of driven, smart and kind people

Amgen is an employer that generally treats it's employees well. They provide generous PTO (about 4 weeks a year), also providing two company wide "shut downs" where the whole company goes on leave for a week. They have great health benefits and 401K match. The people of Amgen are smart and driven but not cutthroat. They are good at working with others. One drawback is the pay is not quite as high as other pharma/biotech companies and they also do not have the associate director title, so it can be very challenging to jump from senior manager to director.

Difficult Management

They originally hired 450 representatives. Then they would let go of 150. Then 6 months later they would hire 300. It was constant up and down. These are peoples lives and families they are messing with, it was difficult to be part of this company.

Poor management

Good place to work

Difficult to get promoted. Good management, healthy organizational culture. Good benefits. The problem is that it is hard to advance your career, whether vertically or laterally.

Stressful environment

Amgen campus and buildings are first rate. It is a very stressful work environment. Consultants are not treated the same as employees. Excluded from many activities.

You can't trust people there

The people here are only looking out for themselves. Nobody is your friend, so don't expect to make connections with your co-workers. People use you, so that they can get ahead.

High Contingent Workforce Turnover

It's an interesting place - prime for learning, but they make little to no investment in supporting contingent worker success or demonstrating allegiance.

Culture going downhill

Been at Amgen over a decade, sadly not what it used to be. Very political, constant changes/turnover and lots of uncertainty. Senior leaderships sincerity/motives questionable.

Amgen is a great company to work for. Their newly upgraded open office environment makes it comfortable to be at work and their family values make work schedules flexible with a come and go policy and work from home options. They have excellent benefits and take good care of their employees. There is an on site gym, cafes, coffee shops, soccer field, basketball courts and regular events for family and friends.

Ok place

Pockets of organization that is amazing and some not so good. Also depends on group you belong to as they have politics and comes in the way of productivity.
