    I worked at Animas full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I honestly can not say very many positive things about this company besides the fact that its a Johnson & Johnson company and has good benefits. Thats about it.

    Cons

    I worked at this company for about a year and it was one of the worst places Ive ever worked. Horrible training program. Extremely micromanaged. The leadership is incompetant and the overall moral was very low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership needs leadership training.

    Worst J&J Company

    I worked at Animas

    Pros

    Ability to work for a company with a mission of helping individuals that have diabetes.

    Cons

    Animas has significant potential. However with legacy "leadership" at the helm of years of disastrous poor planning and zero ability to execute, Animas is doomed to be a J&J divestiture.

    Animas has zero professional development and promotional opportunities due to stagnant and incompetent "leaders" that have zero ability to advance in their own careers, thus staying in their positions until they hope to retire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real authentic and competent leadership that deliver with the "how" in mind, vs. the current state of continuous finger pointing in a failing attempt to preserve their own ability to survive until retirement.

    I worked at Animas full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Owned by Johnson and Johnson, pay and benefits are good because they are part of Johnson and Johnson for now

    Cons

    Company is in serious trouble with the FDA with multiple warning letters (2005 and 2011, see FDA website) and with the parent Johnson & Johnson for unacceptable financial performance. Very high turnover in senior technical and management ranks. Products in market are nearly obsolete compared to competition and have high failure rate. Company will likely be sold by Johnson & Johnson soon or absorbed into one of their other larger companies as a dying business unit with resultant layoffs. Ok place to apply for job if you have no current job or are certain you will loose your current job, not otherwise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for an exit to save yourself and think of your underlings also when you do so

    I have been working at Animas

    Pros

    -good compensation
    -J&J discounted products
    -nice co-workers

    Cons

    -Lack of management skills: Unprofessional, rude, boastful, unapproachable
    -Management is never held accountable. A lot of managers walking around doing nothing.
    -No career advancement: Unless you stalk a VP or constantly sit in their office, you do not have chance to move up. You will be a sales rep until you leave
    -Management is sneaky and not transparent, althought that is what J&J prides themselves for
    -Micromanaged. Calls are recorded, reps can/will be written up if you do not follow the call protocol

    Can't believe this is a J&J company. What a disappointment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
