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

Pros

Decent benefits, discounts on medications and products, admission to museums, some good colleagues, old timers can be great and still hold onto some of the positive values the company used to have, decent tuition benefits

Cons

Unstable environment with continuous restructuring, never ending budget cuts, and management that is justifiably but excessively self concerned, focused on their own future and compensation and uncaring of others in their departments.. Leadership of the design group in particulate is concerned much more with their own individual power, influence, and prominence than with the team or with furthering excellence or creativity, and considers staff, the many contractors, and outside agencies as disposable elements in their plans. Little opportunity for growth or advancement and little ability or effort by management to mentor and develop team. HR group as in many companies is unfortunately not your friend. Design office leadership is emotionally unpredictable, lacking in real vision and creativity, though puts in a strong and in my opinion misplaced effort to maintain a presence in trade publications and press, and to maintain image to executives.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lead with the original Johnson & Johnson core Credo values of integrity, sincerity, care, and vision, and care for the consumer, the employees, and the patients. The last years of the many product recalls and business challenges have take a toll on image, people and profits, but look at the roots of the causes and the decisions of the people who were and are leaders, and move back to the types of leaders and values that made the company great in years past, and away from leadership that is focused on making things appear right and good, rather than actually being right and good.

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The values that the company holds are the most respectable values you would hope from a company in the industries that they play in.

    Everyone wants you to succeed, and helps you do so- even if they risk losing you to another company.

    Cons

    The leadership did not seem innovative or adaptive.

    Communication from executives to the employees was almost as lacking as their communication to the public.
