I worked at Johnson & Johnson

Pros

It is Large company with extensive resources, especially in Research and Development. Management provides extensive feedback regarding your job performance. Management was always extremely helpful regarding a work-life balance and giving time off during the summer and around holidays.

Cons

It is sometimes difficult to get things done because the company is so large. For example, getting software "pushed" to my work computer. This is probably due to the movement of IT to New Jersey.

While you technically work for Johnson & Johnson, you really only feel like you are working for the smaller "umbrella company". There is not much loyalty to J&J products other than the ones your company is working on. It is also very difficult to move within these "umbrella" companies unless you are in upper management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Facilitate more collaboration between other Johnson & Johnson companies.

    Pros

    If you want the experience, the company will help you to get it.

    Cons

    Right now, the global banding process hurts some and praises others. How these decisions were made has not been communicated to those who were effected. The "be grateful you have a job" is the excuse J&J is using to make changes to policies that will only effect employees well being and not save the company any money

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate the reasons and perhaps we would better understand.
