"I love this place. The company has unbelievable resources to get the job done right, as well as group of people willing to do the very best that they can. 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."

Director

"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."

Intern
in Thousand Oaks, CA

"I was a Graduate Intern at Amgen in the Summer of 2014. I wholeheartedly recommend Amgen's Graduate Intern program to any students who are interested. Interns are given real work, not busywork. We are challenged and expected to be professionals, and we are treated with the same respect as full-time employees. All of the managers I met are respectful, supportive leaders who clearly go above and beyond to help employees accomplish their goals."

"It is good place to work. But sometimes management is not the best you can ask for. They are not aware of the technologies or skills required to deliver an IS project. But good place where you can keep balance between your work and personal life."
