I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time

Pros

Plenty of opportunities to move around. Great people in most cases. Good pay and conditions, at least at Manager level and above. Many great products that make a difference in people's lives (Pharm, MD&D... not so much Consumer).

Cons

A lot of consensus building is required. Quality of talent and processes at some affiliates is less impressive than at others.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

We need a more structured approach to many things, such as talent development... rather than "do your best and let's see how things work out." Sure enough, for some of us things do work out... but not for everyone.

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Intelligent, motivated individuals handling interesting work in a fast-paced environment.
    Reasonable hours, extended during busy periods, relaxed otherwise
    Fun location, great connections, nice people

    Cons

    Most of the office is full-time freelance contractors, results in high turnover and lack of knowledge-sharing
    Divide between freelancers and full-time employees to avoid legal implications, but also affects work experience and feeling of inclusion

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The contractor situation is understandable, but consider making headcount for those you believe in and want to see succeed. This will result in better knowledge sharing, mentor-ship and let people see that their work is valued, and that they could be here for the long run. It also will create some hope that the better work you do, the higher possiblity you can stay and continue to be part of the team.
