    Pros

    Good Pay, good benefits. Smart Science and driven to succeed.

    Cons

    Short-term contracts, no extension, overworked, less work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Le the contractors know if a contract is over at least a 2-3 months before the end, not one month before.

    Pros

    They have good intentions and have really stepped up in the area of new product development and newly approved meds. Excellent products and improvement in marketing.

    Cons

    They change leadership every couple of years and with it, change strategies, direction, focus, etc. Its hard to keep up with the new Mgmnt faces that revolve in and out.
    This is disconcerting and frustrating to the field sales force. The ' credo' values of J&J are spoken of, but have mostly disappeared in recent years unfortunately. Much of upper management are from outside J&J and don't seem to have the same loyalty to employees.

    Advice to Management

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Interesting culture. "Our credo" is very good but the employees don't feel it inside their hearts. Nice team buildings and benefits for Christmas party for kids.

    Cons

    The direct manager is the boss and if he/ she doesn't like you, you have no chance to proove that you can do more or better.

    Advice to Management

    To be more professional.

    Treat your employees the same way you treat your best clients; it's the best key to maintain the good relationships and loyalty among them.
