Amgen has evolved from a small and intimate biotech/pharma company to a large Biotech/Pharma behemoth company. During this transition the company lost its soul and spirit to grow, nurture, coach and mentor its employees. Now everything is profit and results driven with little concern for the health, welfare and moral of its employees!
Pros
fair wages
Cons
oppressive management

My experience at Amgen has a lot of mixed feelings. Never was I more excited about an opportunity for a career. Unfortunately after seven years there, I had experienced too many poor management decisions and career thwarting moments to want to move forward. Twice, due to politics, somehow my current departments were authorized to hire new outside employees at a higher pay grade than myself with less education, skill and experience who I also had to train and hand hold. The disappointing part was I was constantly volunteering for extra projects, travel opportunities, etc. but since much of that was at the discretion of your direct manager, it was apparent how much favoritism played in career advancement instead of skills, dedicated and drive. I had managers willing to bend over backwards to promote one employee while I sat there begging for a fair shot. My last straw was when I was hired under a Director and a re-organization then put my under a brand new mid-level manager who had no idea what she was doing. Once it was explained to me we had an algorithm that determined only a specific % of employees could receive advancement any given year and to quote my Director he would have to "attend these meetings and stand on a table and light his hair on fire" in order to quantify actually earning the raise I knew I deserved when working with Directors, VPs and even our CEO regularly, I realized that big, beautiful carrot being dangled in front me of was never going to be in reach. It was heartbreaking to want to be part of something so badly and had all the right skills and desire, - more...
Pros
All the fringe benefits of a Fortune 500
Cons

I had a good experience at Amgen. On a typical workday, I would get into the office ready to tackle my project head-on. As a general rule, the organization is very organized and is ensuring effective meetings take place throughout all functions. Within the R&D, team cultures vary, but there is a good understanding of the strategies set for by the VP. One must prepare for changes as the organization is striving to implement practical solutions across all processes.
Pros
Change is happening all the time, flexibility is a must

Select your friends wisely. Choose the principal scientists and executive to protect your back. Be their own eyes in the departments and report every little details about your coworkers. You know they need you specially with few of them have no knowledge of science to begin with
Pros
benefits, 14 days additional vacation and gym
Cons
the whole culture of a big corporate. unstable, in two years 3000 FTEs laid off
