Great pharmaceutical experience.
Summer Job Student (Former Employee), PROctober 30, 2012
Pros: comfortable environment to work at, great cafeteria.
Working at Amgen was a great experience to familiarize myself with the pharmaceutical environment. However, my work area was more directly related to various other aspects of the company. For instance, the lightening remodeling plans for their lobby building, room labeling for a controlled environment, etc. It was a relatively simple job, but careful – more... attention to details was needed. My manager was very supporting and a great role model to follow. The most enjoyable part of my job was the feeling of achievement after handing in a final report. – less

Amgen review summary
Account Manager (Current Employee), Thousand OaksJuly 17, 2012
Pros: cafeteria with amazing food, yet overpriced.
Cons: very competitive. contractors are treated with little respect.
Great place to work, amazing people, good pay if you are in the right department.

There are some great managers and others that are horrible.

Contracted workers are treated with little respect and zero job security.

The TO campus is beautiful and the Company is highly profitable.

Good science-based company dedicated to making an impact on grievous illness
Principal Scientist (Former Employee), Thousand Oaks, CAJune 18, 2012
Pros: good compensation and benefits, clear career path
Cons: recent management changes negatively affected commitment to discovery research, too focused on financial analyst opinions
Amgen is a good company overall, but recent changes brought about by management have diminished their focus on discovery research. They have shown a tendancy to sacrifice long term success for short term financial gain much like the rest of the pharmaceutical industry at this time.
