I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Our company was acquired by J&J. On the plus side - this is a major experience and a chance to work with a global huge company. They treat you well, regular bonuses, fair pay (a bit above average, not more, though). They do listen to you and will let you choose different paths - which is possible only in such a huge company.

Cons

The work is somewhat boring, beaurocratic and dull. You get the feeling that not much will happen unless you really push yourself forward. This is like a supertanker - slow to turn. Your input gets lost in a sea of beaurocracy.

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great brands. Great people. Hoping that Mr. Gorsky is going to reverse some of the cultural damage inflicted by his predecessors short-term results orientation.

    Cons

    Management has all the answers. Not really interested in original thinking from employees. Year after year SG&A cuts has left everyone scared that it's only a matter of time before you'll lose your job. Credo says employees must have a sense of security in their jobs; we don't. In fact the credo is just a sheet of paper the company hides behind to feel morally superior to other corporations. The company still rests on the laurels of the way the Tylenol scare was handled DECADES ago. THAT company was definitely morally superior to the J&J of today. J&J is committed to the fourth paragraph of the credo FIRST AND FOREMOST.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Give them room to think and to implement their ideas to grow the business. If you have all of the answers, what do you need us for?
