I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Name recognition. This place took off after JNJ bought out Biowebster. Great place to put on your resume. Great selling point to land the next career. Products are mature, though still have low mfg yield & serious compliant issues.

Cons

All co's have office politics but this place ranks near the ocean floor but still beat SpongeBob SquarePant. Stay low-key unless they call your name out. Dont complain. Just do the minimum not to get fired. The lobby is so tight; I am embarassed to show where I work to my networking suppliers. I could smell anti-perspirants or deodorants from visitors as soon as they walk in. Great for winters as it creates cozy & warm atmosphere:):):). The culture here is NO CHANGE. Dont fight with the old-timer big boys. They will find ways to get rid of you, F/T or contract making no difference. H.R ppl here are non-existent or useless. They never hear from you & you dont want to hear from them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ask our Post office employees. They give some good advices on how to run a business:):):)

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

    Pros

    Great Brand and benefits great people and passionate

    Cons

    Credo means nothing. Review system is bad - everyone competing against each other internally. But there seems to be a lack of accountability for performance in upper management. Large company bureaucracy and overall inattentiveness to employee needs and desires. Also good opportunities are given to young candidates in the leadership development program. If you did not come through this program good luck!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting based on friendship and not capability
