    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The people at J&J are one of the best aspects to the job. Everyone is very helpful and willing to take time to explain things to you when you're new to the company. There are also a lot of team building/social activities scheduled during work time (including ice cream socials, bridge building competitions, and outings). Overall, the environment is very friendly and laid back.

    Cons

    Sometimes, supervisors and co-workers have hectic schedules, and it takes them a while to get back to you.

    The work to life ratio portrayed in the interview was entirely different from the reality. Many times you find yourself late at the office to finish projects.
