It is a great place to work. Only problem is they do not offer permanence to often so you got to work as a temp. Everything else was great. The pay was also good.

A typical day consisted of 10-14 hours. I learned the process of making a buffer to be used in the process. The workplace is great. They love to include employees in decision making and part of the working force. The hardest part of the job was the long hours. Most enjoyable part was the culture of learning.

Amgen is definitely a great job in terms of learning opportunities and professional growth. But is a very strict and stressful work environment. Employees can rate you in terms of performance and behavior and this can really get you into trouble (this allows them to get bossy) so make sure you make some friends and follow the rules. Once inside the company you are in the military, extremely ridiculous. The hardest part of the job is actually cope with all the rules and follow word by word every single instruction because they have a procedure for everything. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you are out of the company and can enjoy your salary.
Pros
Great salary, paid vacations and sick days, 401K, health insurance
Cons
Mostly Temporary positions

Amgen is a great place if you are actually hired to work there as full time employee and not as a temp. They made us temps feel like we didn't matter. They excluded us from all company events, including christmas parties. The campus is pretty and 7 really nice gourmet cafeterias, but you don't get the experience unless you are a full time, til then you are just a minion.
Pros
nice campus, huge and clean
Cons
temps get the cold shoulder
