When Amgen was founded in 1980, the company consisted of a few scientists working on a single lab bench in one building. Today, we are the world’s largest biotechnology company, with approximately 14,000 staff members worldwide -- and growing.
Amgen has pioneered the development of novel products based on advances in recombinant DNA and molecular biology and launched the biotechnology industry’s first blockbusters. To sustain our success, we aim to attract and retain the most talented people who are dedicated to our mission of serving patients. Together, we live the Amgen values as we create innovative, best-in-class therapeutics that dramatically improve people’s lives.
Amgen is widely recognized as a top employer, having been included on Fortune Magazine’s "100 Best Places to Work" list and named in The Scientist’s annual survey of the best workplaces for scientists in 2004.
