"I've worked with Amgen since 2009. It's been a fantastic place to work -- generous with bonuses, but can be a bit stingy on salary increases -- however, total package often makes up for that. The work-life balance is great, fantastic daycare on campus, lots of smart co-workers."
"I worked at Amgen as both a Contractor and FTE. While the company's purpose of improving / saving lives through medicine is laudable, the company management does not have a clue on how to actually run a successful company without using / abusing its employees to secure the bottom line. So typical these days for a large publicly traded company to bow to the shareholders instead of building a business that not only benefits people that need the medicine, but also the people that work at the company. Amgen needs to return to its roots as a company that cares about its employees."

I have had the joy of working with people that are very focused at doing the best that they can do, and I am happy working here. It is very competitive, and the work load can be taxing, but in the end you will know that you are working on something important and you made a difference."

Great place to work with many professionals. The main drawback they now face is their management decision for out sourcing of their IT projects which is negatively affecting their support SLA bottom line."

"Amgen provides excellent working environment."
