I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

J&J was consistently ranked a top place to work in general and for women and minorities for good reason. Employee morale was not a cliched lofty corporate aspiration but an integral cultural thread of woven into the fabric of every manager's day to day business practice. And rightfully so. There is no benefit to hiring the best and brightest only to have them attrition for lack of advancement opportunity, compensation, or other reasons. Enter the J&J development suite of programs. From finance to IT, young professionals with a good grades and good attitudes are recruited from around the globe to work in some of the most interesting and challenging roles in the company. The J&J Development programs offer an excellent rotational experience for college and b-school grads to harness their talent by allowing them to experiment with various disciplines and then focus on a core area. I highly recommend working for this company.

Cons

Steamships take too long to turn around. In a technology driven marketplace change can come and go in a nano-second. Without a rapid response to evaluate and purchase new technology either as a capital purchase or acquisition, J&J struggles to keep abreast of the best technology in the marketplace.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Companies need more cross-functional ventures. Let Ethicon-Endo cross sell its products with Cordis, etc.

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great health insurance offerings, work/life balance, day care, fitness centers, a lot of movement opportunities within the company for someone with a degree and desire to move.

    Cons

    Dead-end job for people without a degree. High-pressure situations exist with big expectations for high-performers. People who work here should be mentally prepared for change and should enjoy working hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Despite the availability of management and leadership training for the mid-level managers, some still lack the skills to properly manage and coach their employees.
