    Pros

    Great benefits, work that impacts patient healthcare, and if you believe in building strong relationships with your business partners you'll do well as many HRBP's here prefer to partner from a phone/office vs. getting out with their clients.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, slow, and incredibly unproductive political atmosphere. Also constant restructuring for the sake of short term bottom line management. I honestly have lost faith in the Credo we seem to hold to such high standards. Very inconsistent treatment of employees across Op Co's.

    Advice to Management

    Try bottom up leadership and get an understanding of what's really happening with the employees that serve our customers. Actually allow innovative, risk taking employees to thrive vs stifle their enthusiasm.

    Pros

    The company itself is solid. Really good pay and benefits. Minus the stress, politics and lack of expertise, the company really is a good place to work.

    Cons

    Upper management really doesn't know what they are doing. Projects all around seem to fail consistently. Management decisions or lack thereof leads to a trickle down effect of failure which leads to an extremely stressful work environment. Bonuses and politics seems to drive a lot of decisions by upper management. Very disappointing because the company itself is a good place to work.


  10. Very contentious working environment, not the culture for me!

    Pros

    Above-average pay for area. Flexible work schedules.

    Cons

    A lot of finger-pointing, "it's not my job" attitudes, aging work-force which recieves most of the better benefits. People have no problem yelling at others in the office, very intimidating environment to be a part of. Not much being done to attract and retain new blood. No training plans for new employees and poor process documentation to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Work on your culture! The J & J Creedo sounds nice, but it needs to be enforced in all aspects of the business. Treat new employees with the respect they deserve and at least give them a decent training experience. Mine was non-existent.


  11. A little stale. While the compensation isn't exploitive, I think the delegation and compensation imbalance is.

    Pros

    Good people, generally. There are a lot of smart people working below capacity.

    Cons

    Lack of design focus. J&J needs to wake up as an organization and realize business and design are connected at the hip.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent, be more honest.
