From Thousand Oaks, CA — 08/22/2007

Amgen, as a biotech company, pays very well in comparison to others. There is a great amount of politics and brown nosing in order for one to move up. Benefits are great (401K, vacation time, school paid for, etc.). Job security has become an issue lately due to the recent cut backs. Amgen has been great in providing fun events and activities, more than the majority of companies, and I feel that this helps in boosting moral. There is room for career growth if you know the right people, but at the same time, Amgen does pay your tuition to go back to school. Many of my co-workers are incompetent and this makes my job far more difficult than it needs to be. Work environment is sometimes stressful but I think this depends on what department you are in.
