Amgen is a nice place to work. I work with some really talented people and learn from them everyday. We have successfully launched Repatha, a monoclonal human antibody, and are growing across the nation.

Amgen is a decent company with HORRIBLE upper and middle management. They pay well, have great benefits and decent products. Unfortunately they care more about metrics than increasing actual sales. Lots of nepotism which leads to a lot of very poor managers which makes life difficult for those of us out here pounding the pavement. Innovative ways of selling is not encouraged and is a must in today's restrictive environment. Again.... it mostly comes back to the terrible managers that Amgen HR department defends and protects at all costs. My experience at the home office in Thousand Oaks btw was fantastic. Great training!

Leaders are a bunch of micro managers who make independent policy separate from the company. Way 2 many mgrs and regional mgrs. Hire experience Biotech reps and you don't need 1 mgr for 8 reps, thats a waste of money.
Pros
its a job
Cons
micromanagers

Dermatology representative for the New Haven CT territory, my responsibilities included the promotion of ENBREL to both the Dermatology and Rheumatology markets. Recognized for the ability to effectively communicate utilizing evidence-based medicine, develop and implement business plans, identify growth opportunities, appropriately manage territory budgets and exceed goals. Good company, great products

The health benefits and 401 k match are the golden handcuffs at Amgen but the leadership (the worst in the industry), IC payouts with the forced ranking and the work culture (toxic) are all horrible. If you come here make sure you get all the salary you can.
Pros
Health is good/401k match the best in industry
Cons
Leadership, IC payouts and Culture

Amgen was a top notch organization. Unfortunately for me, I was a newer employee and my position was eliminated due to a reorganization. Product support and benefits were excellent. The company did provide a generous severance package and would have covered health insurance for 12 months after separation if needed.
Pros
Excellent products and culture
Cons
After taking a severance package, you are not able to reapply to the company in the future with out VP approval

I am just looking to leave Amgen of my own free will. I will neither condemn nor praise this company as a matter of principle. You are all welcome to read other reviews posted and make your own decision.

Amgen as well as other big Pharma companies need to acknowledge the importance and value of clinical experience in sales and marketing, not just in the field specific to HCP or Patient education.

You get 3 weeks vacation plus 2 shut down weeks off. The 401K plan is nice as well. However, Amgen is no longer the small biotech company it used to be. It is HUGE PHARMA !
Pros
Good Vacation
Cons
Big Pharma, Micromanaged. frequent field rides. Metrics!

After joining Amgen, I was hopeful the environment would feel like a biotech but quickly learning it was very similar to Big Pharma. It is still a good company with great products.

Amgen had excellent products with a great fair company culture. I was fortunate to have a great team that worked hard to achieve and exceed our goals with our products. As a team, we worked very well together but understood that certian individuals had better relationsihips with certain physicians and was able to use this strategy to achieve our territory goals. The managenment team was great to work with and allowed use to mainly run our own business in order to meet our sale goals. The hardest part of my job was introducing a new class of medication that physicians were not used to prescribing. However, this "hardest part" of my job became the most enjoyable part as well when I was able to convience my physicians to perscribe my medications.
Pros
Achieving my goals
Cons
Job security

Current C Unit is more prior aut/reimbursement oriented than an actual Sales or Marketing job. I would not recc working at this companies division until they have ironed out the reimbursement issues and structure and strategy..
