    Pros

    Benefit package is great. Pension. 401k. Very good health insurance. Accepting of minorities. Diverse work cultures.

    Cons

    Management is not empowered to support team. Career opportunities are more about who you know than what you know or how you work.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example. Reward success and have consequences for failures. Invest in quality equipment rather than using outdated models to save on overhead, as it will improve productivity and reduce overall man-hours. Budgets should be strategically planned for the long term, not for minimizing expense during current quarter.

    Pros

    Great company, great benefits, great people all driven to make a difference

    Cons

    Since the acquisition of Synthes, morale is at a all time low. Focus is on sales, not employees and development. Management needs a rehaul, takes credit for the hard work of the employees. It has become a take, take take company rather than one that used to be a place people loved and were proud to be a part of. If you are looking for a career with a company that should have the motto "What more can you do for me" you will love to work here. The organization is falling apart and is losing their most valued employees at a fast pace.

    Advice to Management

    Remember what/who is making you successful.

    Pros

    J&J Benefits, J&J Brand Looks good on resume

    Cons

    Culture is depressing. Leadership is lacking. Lack of Innovation. Work/Life Balance is non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to basic... Connect with the "worker bees" and not just "leadership" to understand what the customers really want.
