    I have been working at Amgen full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Amgen values talent and has many good progressive talent development programs. Values diversity and coming up to speed with solid Diversity programs at the corporate level and is functions are engaged and building their plans. Data from employee surveys generally good. Most leaders and staff live the values. Employee Benefits are vey good.

    Cons

    Can be long hours. Service model includes several COEs and HRBPs handling most point of contact for leaders. COEs handle most a lot of the transactions and strategy for programs. No easy way to flex up for times of high demand other than working long hours. Titles are more limited than other places so harder to be promoted at the the higher levels.

    Advice to Management

    Look at resourcing models to ensure quality service can be delivered without consistent long hours More quickly address issues with leaders who don't live the values. Keep strong benefit plan. It helps retain some of our best talent
