Typical work day is fun, energetic and productive. Management is understanding, advocator for you and always wants you to learn as much as you can. Workplace culture is great!! The hardest part was when my assignment ended after 3 years, the most enjoyable part was the people. They were very helpful, team oriented and always eager to teach whatever was necessary to get the job done.
Pros
lunch, education and th people

Good luck getting hired if you are a contract worker, they would rather keep you as a temp so they do not have to pay health insurance. It was a good job, but no chances for advancement

I loved my position at Amgen. I was at a point in my life where I needed more time to spend with my children. The facility is amazing and you work with very smart, fun, driven people.

NextGen workspace no longer assigned desks or monitors available to all who need them. Due to constant remodeling, eateries have closef and food trucks brought in, exceedingly expensive.

First off, get used to Next Gen Work Environment - no assigned employee space - Chairs for 70% of staff Monitor resources available for 30% of those chairs. On average, you will be working off a laptop on the laptop monitor. Demands are high - currently, the mentality is to do more with less and if you can't handle it, there will be someone that can internally or externally. There is a heavy focus on personal control over your goals, development, and advancement. If you can successfully lay the political game; you can rise. Many do not do well and work a bunch of hours just to stay afloat. There is a lot of benefits - exposure to all levels of leadership due to open floorplan and benefits are pretty nice. Company shutdowns and vacation accruals are generous. Don't ever expect to use all your vacation time after a year or 2 because work still needs to be completed one way or another.
Pros
generous benefits and wonderful corporate office location
Cons
competitive work environment; high stress, culture of success based on who you know and how you can spin your work product.

I worked for Amgen for five years in one of there sales offices in Wayne, PA where I supported two executive directors for Oncology Unit in Northeast and MidAtlantic territories. A typical day at work was checking in with Executive Directors, answering any incoming calls, travel, expense reports, helping with slide preparation, coordinating and booking off-site meetings. I learned to multi-task and toggle between two Directors. Management at Amgen was very fair and balanced and the workplace culture was balanced as well. The office that I worked in was a small office with only two other Administrative Coordinators and we all worked very well together. The hardest part of the job was knowing that my managers wanted at all times; sometimes I made the final call and hoped it was the right one. The most enjoyable part of my job was the culture, the people I worked for and traveling.
Pros
Great company to work for.

Amgen is a job, the company has high expectations of its employees and applies pressure to always do more. Your plate is full but there is always more you can do. You will be stressed out of your mind and therapy of all sorts will be needed to get you through this job. You are a number not a person and if you try to apply internally for another position within the company, you need to know someone or else you won't advance.
Pros
Compensation, the pay and benefits are excellent
Cons
High stress, lots of doctor visits to get you through the days of working here

When I was a contracted employee Amgen was great. After I was hired it was totally different than what I was presented. Everyone there is depressed and complaining. Lack of communication between management and employees.
Pros
Nice co-workers
Cons
Most miserable place I ever worked.

I was blessed to work at Amgen's Washington sites. The group of people there, not only in my group/department, but across all functions at the site were the best of the best. Everyone was dedicated to the mission. My immediate manager was truly someone unique and special to work for. She absolutely made sure that her reports had a strong work/life balance (even if she didn't adhere to that for herself). My immediate group of co-workers is what I loved the most and what I miss the most now that AWA has been closed down.
Pros
Terrific benefits, great compensation
Cons
Uncertainty since 2007, never knew when the next outsourcing or lay-offs would occur
