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 Management

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and company culture. Very family oriented and depending on the role the work/life balance is good

    Cons

    Hard to move up. They use lots of development tools such as succession planning to try and help people get promoted but rarely use any of those when hiring into promotional jobs. Very political just like any big company
