More cuts soon?

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

How often are layoffs?

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

700 to go

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?
