    Very informative co-op experience

    Clinical Pharmacology Co-op (Former Employee)
    Radnor, PA

    ProsJanssen as a great place to start my career in industry. I was treated as an equal, given real responsibilities and projects, and respected as an individual. I worked in R&D and was able to present in group meetings, attend conferences, and truly build my skills.

    ConsAs in all companies, there seemed to be dissent among non-management workers about the decisions of upper management. Office politics were very real, and managers certainly had favorites.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be restricted by preconceived notions or office rumors.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Excellent research facilities, friendly co-workers, ideal work environment.

    Graduate Research Co-op (Former Employee)
    Radnor, PA

    ProsBiologics are contributing to a larger portion of Johnson & Johnson's revenue. There is a lot of emphasis on expanding Janssen Pharmaceuticals to help sustain and improve the company's share in the biologics space, especially after the success of Remicade and Stellara.

    ConsDon't have many entry-level positions available.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow new and fresh talent to get in more easily.

    Janssen is a collaborative environment that appreciates innovative ideas.

    District Sales Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsExperienced management and a small company feel. Janssen respects those that take informed risks. Development of associates at all levels is a cornerstone of the company's success.

    ConsAs with any pharmaceutical company at this point in time there is a high degree of uncertainty but if you thrive in ambiguity, you'll do just fine!

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to be transparent in every way possible as it builds associate trust and respect.

    Overall good, but some pockets of company very political

    Product Director (Current Employee)
    Titusville, NJ

    ProsCollaborative environment
    Great teams with talented individuals
    Strength in marketing
    Good formalized development programs

    ConsSome senior leaders are focused on their own agenda and advancement and are not supportive of their teams
    Depends on where you are in the organization -- slightly different cultures depending on location
    Politics tend to contribute to advancement opportunities

    Advice to Senior ManagementDespite initiatives in employee engagement, would be helpful for organization if senior management really embaced this.

    Janssen-Cilag headquarters

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe position included meals, most of the staff was friendly, and it was a non-competitive workplace.

    ConsThe position consisted on performing rutinary, non fulfilling tasks. And the company's headquarters are not located in downtown Madrid, as they should.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBy the time I joined the company they was an obvious underload of job, considering the huge workforce hired.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
