    Former Employee - Scientist in Skillman, NJ

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time (more than 3 years)


    The work-life balance and culture was great, high beliefs in cross functional alignment which led to higher growth as an individual. Pay and benefits were good.


    Environment can be cut-throat at times. If you question management, even in a positive sense, your bound to have some form of blow back regardless of whether it is deserved or not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the innovative and new-age approach to dealing with everyday problems. Listen to low-level employee's to get their views and values heard.
