    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson

    Pros

    J&J gives you lots of opportunities to learn, excel, and impress in order to be recommended for the FLDP program. As a co-op, I've been given lots of budgeting responsibilities and projects that focus on my weaknesses. I love my coworkers and the inclusive, community culture here.

    Cons

    There are big expectations, and the stakes are high. Only a few people are recommended for FLDP, so there's a lot of pressure on everyday work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Interact with "lower" employees more.

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you want to learn to be the best this is the place to develop. It is the best in terms of Marketing, Technically and in Management. They are very deep in talent, and want to develop and cross train all their people. The only limit here is you.

    Cons

    There are always some politics in a large company, and this one is no exception. But you can succeed without the politics. Eventually someone will notice your talent, and you have to be patient. But well worth it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you do, you are the best at it.
