Work Hard, Play Hard kind of place
Sr. Associate (Former Employee) –  Thousand Oaks, CA24 June 2019
Amgen was transitioning to a more structured large corporate culture. One of the most common things I heard there was: "how much better it was back in the day".

They gave me my first corporate job and helped me with a lot of learning and growth. But at the end there was no work/life balance and promotions did not seem to correlate with job performance. I found a better option and moved on.
Pros
On campus gym
Cons
Very ridgid reporting structure

Manufacturing Associate II (Former Employee) –  Thousand Oaks, CA9 June 2019
Great company not much to say. Typical day began going to review meetings of daily issues. Oversaw my projects, investigated high priority issues. My co workers for the most part were some of the best people to work with.

Biotech is where to work
Senior Training Manager (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WA6 June 2019
There are few places better to invest your career time than in Biotech.

Your work can have an impact on people's lives. There is little more satisfying than hearing about friends or relatives being helped by the drugs made available by biotech.

Terrible Leadership
Sr. Biopharmaceutical Rep (Current Employee) –  Nashville, TN31 May 2019
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
