    I have been working at Janssen (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you can get one of the increasingly rare FTE positions, pay is good, the people are fabulous, the work is interesting.

    Cons

    Janssen, like all J&J companies, has a weird habit of systematically devaluing current FTEs. Cubes are shifted around to be smaller, work flow is interrupted regularly by reorgs, current FTEs are pushed down in the hierarchy as new people are placed on the top. They've removed all actual workers, most mangers and are now shaving off Directors, leaving Janssen as a holding company with VPs and above and contractors doing most of the work. As employees reach their 50s or get close to vesting, they should expect to be reorged around and their job disappeared.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You hire the best, stop wasting their expertise in tax-oriented reorgs. Give them the resources and support they need and J&J might last into the end of the 21st century. Stop talking about the Credo, you don't mean a word of it.

    Pros

    The company is a great opportunity to expand your knowledge and experience within the pharmaceutical world. I know the recent ups and downs seem negative, but things are getting better.

    Cons

    Within my local site, the chance for opportunity is forever blooming. My only issue is that I like to become the best at what ever I am doing and the opportunity for promotion has passed by me several times because management is afraid to submit the requisition. My only opportunity I see in advancement is to take another position within another department for the same organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like to see management apply some level of formality for promoting individuals within their respective departments. Some individuals like where they work, and don't want to move around the company seeking for a higher position.

    Big company, good products, however the size becomes a trouble in terms of the internal procedures.

    I worked at Janssen

    Pros

    Access to Johnson and Johnson products at very low cost; when company was doing well, better opportunities for advancement, recent cutbacks have kept people in limbo selling lots of products.

    Cons

    Management clearly has its favourites with a small group of people and unqualified MBAs moving from position to position without proving themselves along the way. Some good people in management, too, but overall lacking vision and knowing how to treat employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to employees, compare yourself to other companies and their selling styles. It's time to get back to basics because things were running more smoothly 7 years ago.
