    Pros

    Great people, great history, respected past practices

    Cons

    Claim to want your ideas to improve company but a misnomer...
    Worked in a department that hired consultants and took their opinions over seasoned employees. If you get wrong comment in your hr file or special code you will never be hired again in ANY jnj division. Very disappointing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Flush hr files and dismiss do not hire practices. Respect knowledge and opinions of experienced employees. Why give employees classes on process excellence then not be able to apply rules to own workplace!!

    Pros

    One of the most diverse (from a people and a product standpoint), ethical, and and upstanding companies I've ever worked for. The power of the brand is an aid to doing business with outside sources. Strong business that didn't miss a beat in the worst economic times. Many great minds and talented people (offset by a con below). Great opportunities to grow and get placed into different areas and lines of business.

    Cons

    The company is huge, and that scale and it's structure can sometimes make it difficult in an IT role. Generally, the higher you go on the management food chain, the less technology - aware they tend to be. This lack of understanding sometimes leads to head-scratcher decisions and 'just snap your fingers and make the technology get done' attitudes that are difficult. Huge bureaucracy can cause delays with legal, procurement, security, and regulatory concerns that cripple deadlines. Some entrenched networks of dead wood, blocker-type employees are also obstacle at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strive to build a period of management stability, and consistent practices. Find a way to ensure that decentralization doesn't breed disconnection, and lose opportunities for economies of scale. Clean up dead wood.
