Training & Development
Our staff members are passionate about and dedicated to serving patients and living the Amgen values. This means having the initiative to stretch, grow and take advantage of the many career development opportunities available to them. Amgen promotes this commitment with a wide variety of formal job training and career education opportunities, including technical, functional and company-wide programs. Additionally, our competitive tuition reimbursement program makes ongoing education easier to experience and enjoy.
Amgen views professional relationships as an integral part of growth. Our supportive and inclusive environment encourages mentorship and coaching. Individuals who initiate these relationships discover that ongoing, informal feedback and two-way communication are readily available to them. Through additional programs, such as 360 degree developmental feedback and performance-based eFeedback, all staff members receive the chance to develop their capabilities and continually improve their performance.
While formal career development and relationships are valuable, we recognize that a major catalyst to growth is the work people do. With the wide variety of science-based, data-driven projects that are continually under way at Amgen, individuals often branch off from their core work and increase their capabilities by taking on new or additional responsibilities. This flexibility allows Amgen staff members to experience different areas of the company, expand their knowledge base and receive on-the-job training in a variety of skill areas. In turn, our talented and well-rounded staff base enables Amgen to face competitive challenges and meet our commitment to serve patients around the world.
