    I worked at Janssen as a contractor

    Pros

    Immediate supervisors are very helpful and understanding.

    Cons

    Contract workers are underpaid, unappreciated, and overlooked. Slim chance being hired as permanent employee unless you personally know someone in upper-management. Contractors complete the two year contract, are laid off and then asked to come back for two more years as a contracted employee. Some have done this for many years hoping to be become permanent. There is also a racial divide that needs to be addressed.

    The Credo is for show. Don't believe it. Don't believe them when they say uncapped bonus.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Janssen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good salaries, but low bonus structure. Training is done at home on your computer. Great company cars. Large budgets on new products. Not too many meetings. Sales force uses iPads.

    Cons

    Benefits are not so great. Not a lot changes over 20 years of employment. Never pays bonuses on time. Overlapping of reps. Always in trouble for illegal use of materials. The use of iPads in the field to track employees.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in more managers from outside JNJ. The culture is moldy.
