Cons

Blame culture
Was this review helpful?

Fellow co-workers were a mixed bag of friendly and helpful to unhelpful and misleading. Management were not pleasant to deal with.

Most co-workers in my department were very helpful and good to deal with. Some however were openly unhelpful and misleading leading to tension. The management were unapproachable, took very little interest in my work, did not try to foster a team environment or make me feel like I was part of organization. They provided no guidance and very little feedback.

Pros

Excellent Canteen and locker rooms

Cons

Poor Work Culture, felt like just another employee to be exploited

Great place to work yourself to death

Great place to work but very competitive environment between departments, everyone has their own priorities, no common goals. I enjoyed working there as I liked the fast pace environment but it is stressful most of the time and can impact your personal life greatly.

Production

Work was sort of micro managed with the new regime of managers that had taken over from the Pfizer management people felt very uneasy to perform tasks

You are just a number

When you work with Amgen you are treated like a number not a person. There are many benefits but there is no personal touch...no work/life balance and no rewards for hard work

Diligent and community-like workplace

I found the job challenging and every day was something new to learn or experience. I learned so much about the process of drug production, and the amount of work that goes into every aspect of the process. I felt very proud to be playing a role in providing healthcare in this way. Leaving this job was the toughest professional decision I have ever made, but I wanted to experience living abroad and something new.

Good pay poor communication and training

It is an excellent company with respect to compensation, and seem to look after permanent staff well, the difficulty relates to contact positions, there seems to be no feedback whatsoever either positive or negative, and there is an extraordinary blame culture. I'd recommend it as a stepping stone rather than a long term career prospect.

Pros

Pay

Cons

Blame culture, non existent feedback for contractors.

Great biotechnology company

There are many things to learn from a biotechnology company like Amgen technology. As a student intern in this company, I gained valuable knowledge about the values of project management. There are continuous improvement projects being conceived and developed at Amgen at any given time, therefore, there is a lot to learn from the processes and operations that are on going at the company.

Pros

finished early on fridays and weekends off

Cons

very fast paced environment

productive, friendly and safe safe place to work

During my time in Amgen in the stability department, I undertook a variety of tasks. I helped to pull samples, update their location on the LIMS system and deliver them to various departments . My job included updating data sheets , annual product reviews and I helped to update SOP's. I hade to converse with various contract labs sending data vis email, this process allowed me to use both Amgen and Pfizer protocols. Throughout my placement in Amgen I helped to collect inventory of controlled substance and organise their removal off the premises. I enjoyed all of the task mentioned above along with all of my other day to day jobs. Amgen provided a very enjoyably atmosphere to work in along with a great deal of support and camaraderie amongst co workers. Amgen provided a great deal of traning including sop writhing skills which are invaluable to me in my future career.

Nice place to work. Very friendly environment.

A typical day consists of completing environmental reports for the suite's on site. Dealing with daily BMS requests and completing BMS daily checks. Completing a variety of different surveys on site and daily requests from senior engineers. I learned about the clean and black utilities on site, also the process systems used within the suite, I gained familiarity with the suite. I learned about GMP, Non GMP systems, CAPA's and the day-to-day management within the Utilities office. Within my office were the senior engineers on site and all were very friendly and helpful during my time in the company. The hardest part of my job was time balancing the variety of requests from senior engineers within the Utilities office. The most enjoyable part of the job was the friendly environment in which i worked, the staff made me feel very welcome and there were a variety of clubs and societies on site.

Pros

Friendly atmosphere/environment. Job satisfaction
