High workload with extremely poor managment
Senior Manufacture Process Technician (Former Employee), Thousand Oaks, CAJune 1, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: management, breaks?, training/development, managment
Excellent benefits and great products, however the management and on-the-job training are a joke. You are a disposable asset with little to no personal development provided.

Pros: pro active in identifying, analysing and evaluating customers' need. dependable services, networking efficiancy and effectiveness.
Cons: base salary + out standing bonus opportunity, benefits.
I joined the professional team to manage the major oncology accounts in New Jersey. Within six months the groups of accounts I was managing performed so well that placed me in the top 10 percentile performer of the company. I also had opportunity to launch two new major bio-tech products. During the launch there was uncapped bonus period, which provided – more... great opportunity for the top performers. This 2 years my earning was in excess of 170K – less

Used to be a Great Place to Work
Associate Scientist (Current Employee), Oaks, CAMarch 18, 2014
Pros: beautiful campus, great benefits, amazing 401k and bonuses
Cons: politics rules not science
The people are really smart but are often underutilized which leads to petty power struggles and poor decision making. The campus is beautiful but it is located far from Los Angeles (can be a pro/con depending on where you prefer to live, I'm a city person so this is a con). The 401K is great and so are the bonuses. Upward mobility is possible but you – more... have to be very patient and play politics. The work atmosphere used to be creative and exciting and now it feels pessimistic and fearful. If you want to cruise on neutral this is a great company, if you want to learn and feel inspired look for a smaller (younger?) biotech. – less

Great time place to start a job
Associate Quality Control (Former Employee), Longmont, COMarch 13, 2014
Pros: experience and knowledge
Cons: temp position
This was my first experience with a big company and it was great. The people were great the work was fun and the learning was daily. Fresh out of school, I jumped in to my daily duties. There was lots of training and I learned the basics of media prep, autoclaves, use of pH meters and balances and more. I had great management that would try to help – more... develop my skills with my input. I enjoy being in the lab with my co-workers, working while still talking and having fun. – less

Super intelligent workforce, novel biotech innovations. good pay, great benies
Sr. Primary Container Engineer (Manager) (Current Employee), Thousand OaksFebruary 26, 2014
Pros: good pay, great benies. awesome people
Cons: downsizing, lacking clear direction from the top down
Management in some areas are clueless and disruptive to science. This happens anywhere, not special to Amgen. However, Sr. Management is now all about the bottom line, and the Scientific Method cannot be governed by silly deadlines and budgets.
Great place to work, flexible hours, good pay. great people, working with new science is amazing..... until – more... they accelerate the program into the ground and make million dollar business decisions on limited data. – less
