I worked at Animas full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Owned by Johnson and Johnson, pay and benefits are good because they are part of Johnson and Johnson for now

Cons

Company is in serious trouble with the FDA with multiple warning letters (2005 and 2011, see FDA website) and with the parent Johnson & Johnson for unacceptable financial performance. Very high turnover in senior technical and management ranks. Products in market are nearly obsolete compared to competition and have high failure rate. Company will likely be sold by Johnson & Johnson soon or absorbed into one of their other larger companies as a dying business unit with resultant layoffs. Ok place to apply for job if you have no current job or are certain you will loose your current job, not otherwise.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look for an exit to save yourself and think of your underlings also when you do so

    Up until "the merge," Animas was one of my favorite companies to work for.

    I have been working at Animas

    Pros

    -good compensation
    -J&J discounted products
    -nice co-workers

    Cons

    -Lack of management skills: Unprofessional, rude, boastful, unapproachable
    -Management is never held accountable. A lot of managers walking around doing nothing.
    -No career advancement: Unless you stalk a VP or constantly sit in their office, you do not have chance to move up. You will be a sales rep until you leave
    -Management is sneaky and not transparent, althought that is what J&J prides themselves for
    -Micromanaged. Calls are recorded, reps can/will be written up if you do not follow the call protocol

    Can't believe this is a J&J company. What a disappointment.
