  3. "Don’t be fooled by the corporate comms messages"

    2.0
    Former Employee - Commercial Operations 

    I worked at Amgen full-time

    Pros

    Benefits eg shares, bonus, medical Products and pipeline Majority of people in positions below director are lovely. Most at director and above lose sight of what’s important and focus on own personal agenda

    Cons

    Leaders are not people leaders Very very poor people leadership Bureaucracy stifles innovation Far too many cooks in the kitchen to be agile Excessive volume of meetings As a company has own self image of being a great place to work which is stopping them from truly reflecting on areas where huge improvements are required to make it a more pleasurable place to work. Eg WFH as an accepted practice is all talk and most managers frown on it as a way of providing flexible work conditions. Hoping recent times will change this behavior.

    Pros

    Value placed on patients and people is paramount, they live their value everyday and expect the same of employees. Remunerate their people very well.
