I have been working at Janssen Research & Development full-time (More than 5 years)RecommendsPositive OutlookRecommendsPositive Outlook
JNJ is a wonderful company to work for. They really do look out for their employees. They offer work from home(depending on role) and are flexible with your schedule. Also, the benefits are really good. I do enjoy working for this company.
I find it a bit difficult to move around with in the company. Depends on your manager/group and support. Some can be really good and easily move around, however, some not so. It really depends who/what/when.
Advice to Management
There may be talent in the lower pool of roles-- that are looking to move on up, but are having difficulty. Sometimes there is no where else to go in that group and have a tough time moving vertically as well. There are people out there who have the skills and education to be in bigger and challenging roles. I would look beyond someone and really see who has that potential and passion and give the little guy a chance to succeed. :)
Getting an Interview

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Janssen Research & Development (Malvern, PA) in May 2015.
Was referred by an employee. The phone interview was with the Associate Director who asked a couple of technical questions. About 2 weeks later, I was invited for an in-person panel interview which was scheduled for 45 min, but lasted about 1 hour 20 min. I walked into a conference room to see 5 people sitting at the table and one empty chair at the end for me with a bottle of water. Panel interview process was intimidating, asked a lot of technical, behavioral, and situational questions. A lot of the situational questions I did not have a situation for, so I said "I have not been faced with this situation in my career yet, but if I did, I would do ...." After my interview, I did not feel 100% confident that I nailed the interview, but then 2 weeks later I got the offer!
- 1. How do you deal with confrontation, and provide an example 2. Name a time when an employee did something unethical, and how did you deal with it? 3. Name a time when a project partner did not do their share of the work, and what you did. 4. What do you do if a partner has an idea that you are sure will not work? 5. If you plan out a schedule, what do you do if something goes wrong? I answered "I would go back to the drawing board and try to figure out what went wrong and prevent it from happening again." But then they asked what if you did all that, and something still went wrong? 1 Answer
