Around 350 former Horizon employees are being told this week that their positions will be eliminated where there is "overlap with existing teams at Amgen," a spokesperson... — read more
company wide layoffs today! Let's see if this makes the news... probably not. The middle class is shrinking but don't worry the shareholders will be just fine.
US Biotechnology firm Amgen Inc is slashing its workforce by about 450 jobs, less that 2% of its workforce, the company said, citing pressure on dr-g prices and high levels of inflation as the... — read more
Is the management not ashamed of treating some of its oldest and most loyal employees this way? I'm not even talking about layoffs, but to give such low severance to people with more than two decades here is insulting at best. Everybody involved in... — read more
Whole teams in DTI were informed today, let me know if you are also affected and what org. This is wild.
After the 300 employees who were cut at the end of January/start of February, is there any chance there will be more sometime in the near future? I was caught off guard by the last round since I didn't expect we'd start the year with layoffs, so I... — read more
Debt is a high level of risk. In just a little more time we will know how much profit there is in the fourth quarter. Are there any predictions?
I joined Amgen a few months ago and I come from a company where layoffs were a concern 24/7, pretty much. That was one of the reasons why I was so quick to leave. I've talked to my new coworkers and they say Amgen is much better than that but that I... — read more
Q&A kinda thread - what's happening next?
Anyone has facts? How many people work at the main office at Thousand Oaks?
Does anybody know if we can expect more layoffs as part of the latest Medical Affairs reorganization? We've had so many so far I've lost count, and usually they involve layoffs - but not every time. It would be good to know which group this reorg... — read more
I highly doubt that doubt sales reps will be affected, but you never know - Amgen is sometimes weird. We'll be mostly moving R&D and operations out of ATO...
Completely agree with the assessment of Amgen that some posters had listed below. Add in the combination of weak leadership, a stale culture, and a demoralized workforce. I expect that Amgen will continue to trim heads and move jobs to lower cost... — read more
It's sad that over half of the company's employees now are contract workers. That shows how low Amgen is willing to go to appease shareholders. Nothing against contract workers, mind you, but laying off people just to save on benefits and pay by... — read more
there're so many positives about working at amgen, but they all get overshadowed by complete and utter instability. the ups and downs are like a roller coaster. amgen will hire good people just to lay them off soon after. then they'll hire people... — read more
No announcement internally. But word of mouth spreads in this small community. Manufacturing says goodbye to 700. Overall 1300 this year, >25% site reduction. Trimming down to be bought?
Not sure why people seem so surprised by layoffs, when they've been a part of doing business for Amgen for years. Every now and then we'll get a new reorganization that always includes a round of layoffs. Office morale has been hitting new lows... — read more
If you are a forward thinker with ideas, stay away from Amgen. In my three decades of work, I have never worked at a place that is so uncompromisingly stuck in its very outdated way of doing things. Everywhere else people who contributed new views... — read more
Huge number of R&D folks were laid off from the Amgen headqulocated in Thousand Oaks on Nov. 1, 2017. The senior leadership is not giving out the exact number of people laid off to avoid bad publicity.
When will my job be safe? Never - never never! Right, that's our modern capitalism - that's probably why there are rumors about layoffs in Thousand Oaks.
Reorg - AGAIN! 500 are affected... But, not all will be layoffs. Some will be reassigned, some relocated and some will be laid off. Tampa is being stood up, 450 will be located there. Some R&D will be moved to Cambridge and SF. PR is downplaying... — read more
Came here to see if someone had any information about job cuts, layoffs in Thousand Oaks.
More consolidation in the sector means fewer jobs. Looks like several mergers or takeovers coming...which means...
What is the likelihood of Amgen layoffs in Thousand Oaks in 2016? Please let me know if you have any information.
I think that we'll see 300 more leave in 2015. 2014 was not the best year for us.
Yet another reorg in works at Amgen. Dont know who will be affected, let's see what happens.
All of them had issues in 2013 that continue in 2014. We are underperforming as a sector and things will get worse in Q2 and Q3.
