Our Corporate Values

Be Science-Based
Our success depends on superior scientific innovation, integrity and continuous improvement in all aspects of our business through the application of the scientific method. We see the scientific method as a multi-step process that includes designing the right experiment, collecting and analyzing data and rational decision making. It is not subjective or emotional, but rather a logical, open and rational process. Applying the scientific method in all parts of the organization is expected and highly valued.
 
Compete Intensely and Win
We compete against time, past performance and industry rivals to rapidly achieve high quality results. Winning requires taking risks. We cannot be lulled into complacency by previous achievements. Though we compete intensely, we maintain high ethical standards and demand integrity in our dealings with competitors, customers, partners and each other.
 
Create Value for Patients, Staff and Stockholders
We provide value by focusing on the needs of patients. Onyx creates a work environment that provides opportunities for employees to reach their full potential. 
 
Be Ethical
We are relentless in applying the highest ethical standards to our products, services and communications.
 
Trust and Respect Each Other
Every job at Onyx is important and every employee is important. We attract diverse, capable and committed people and provide an environment that fosters inclusion, respect, individual responsibility and values diversity. Trust is strengthened through personal initiative and by obtaining quality results rapidly.
 
Ensure Quality
Quality is a cornerstone of all of our activities. We seek the highest quality information, decisions and people. We produce high quality products and services. Quality is woven into the fabric of everything we do.
 
Work in Teams
Our teams work quickly to move scientific breakthroughs from the lab through the clinic to the marketplace and to support other aspects of our business. Diverse teams working together generate the best decisions for patients, employees and stockholders. Our team structure provides opportunities for employees to impact the direction of the organization, to gain broader perspective about other functions within the Amgen organization and to reach their full potential.
 
Collaborate, Communicate and Be Accountable
Leaders at Onyx seek input and involve key stakeholders in important decisions. In gathering input, strong leaders will welcome diverse opinions, conflicting views and open dialogue for serious consideration. They will clearly communicate decisions and rationale openly and in a timely manner. Once a decision is made, the leader and members of the team will all be accountable for the results and for implementing the decision rapidly.
