Pros

J & J has a good reputation and it always sounds impressive when you tell someone that you work for them. Family/work life balance is very important to the corporate culture at J & J. There are many times when I had personal issues to attend to and management is generally very flexible and supportive as long as the quality of your work does not diminish. The benefits package is excellent; not only because of the health insurance but you get dollar for dollar 401k match and a stock bonus every year. You also get discounts on any J & J products.

Cons

typical corporate environment; not much freedom to express a differrence of opinion when it comes to company strategies, it actually feels like that is discouraged. They want you to drink the kool-aid and smile.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees in the field and on the front lines. They know more then you think.

    Pros

    Compensation, benefits, work to life balance. Compared to other pharmaceutical companies aroung, J&J seems like a safer place to work. The lay-off percentage is more sparing than others, the diversification of the business looks smarter than the approach than other companies take. In most cases, you are the master of your schedule and you can balance your work and life projects accordingly.
    Compensation package is more generous than for smaller companies around, and benefits are good but deductibles grews a lot in the last few years.

    Cons

    Weak leadership, long processing time for everything new, lack of understanding of the value of science, more input on sales and marketing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not be so cheap on science
