    wow, Amgen... really? I guess all the Otezla reps will have to look for new jobs now. Thanks a lot Celgene.

    ya. Thanks Celgne. Thanks for being transparent. Thanks for having your employees backs. Thanks for letting us know last.

    That’s how they all work. Lining their pockets as they lie and manipulate to your faces. Doubt Amgen will keep any of you as they have a sales force already for the specialty. Wouldn’t want to work for them. Awful company!

    So Amgen keeps the Otezla reps long enough to screw you out of the severance package, then let’s lets everyone go.

    Thought it was Celgene or BMS paying the severance in original package? Amgen not held to anything at this point!

    You knew the risks of this industry when you took the job. High pay and high risk. If you can do better, I implore you to move on and enjoy life.

    You are missing the main benefit: you don't have to be BMY. I am telling you, they are as bad as they get. On par with the misery that Sanofi, Pfizer and Merck reps face daily. Amgen is pretty bad, but world's better than those.

    Hopefully now they will let us know ASAP about keeping us or not. I assume most of us are gone, but I heard once they announce the company they have 30 days to tell us in writing.

    By who, which company?

    so even if Otezla reps get laid off we still get the severance package though, correct? Everything they have said is that our severance protections go with whoever buys us. Is anyone else under a different impression?

    Yes, everything is the same.

    Will we know by sept 15? They said that date in the Q&A

    I call bullshit on this, Amgen is the worst company I worked for in my career and I once worked for Merck.

    I worked for Amgen and have still there who desperately are looking to leave. Amgen is as bad as it gets but pretends it isn’t big pharma but is run like it

    My concern is if Amgen keeps us, but then raises our quotas soon after. We can’t get the severance for not meeting numbers. And that would be the easiest way to get rid of reps without paying!

    Did they say yet if Amgen is paying focus bonus over time, or Celgene to pay it all out at time of divestment?

    Spoken like a true moron!

    If you don’t think Amgen will want to max out their $13.4 B investment then you are a true moron!

    My sense is that Amgen won’t keep us. They have a division calling on Dermatologist with Enbrel. It’s to many reps to much overlap. We are toast!

    Take off your tinfoil hat little boy/girl. You're the dope that comes to Cafepharma looking for real answers and insight.
