Pros

Large organization, so there is a lots of mobility for learning different skills. Colleagues are typically supportive, smart and fair. Benefits, salaries and opportunities are always appropriate.Good place for advancement internal as well as external.

Cons

Resurgence of cliques, networks and back door dealings. This is a unintend consequence of a significant HR effort to building teams...what actually was created was a system of cross company networing that was based purely on how quickly you could accelerate each others career regardless of realistic outcomes. Essentially, if you are part of the crowd, you could get fast tracked, slick presentations, get to the numbers as fast as you could, all sizzle no steak mentality... results... poor decisions on quality, sales, and business strategies.. short term personal promotion versus the long term company success.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It is an excellent company and it will swing back towards is Core Credo values, but it needs to understand that values are evolving and changning and loyalities to company and credos change. While the Credo doesn't need an update, the engagement and enrollment of employees to the Credo does need to change. It needs acknowledge individual values that are different than companies and work to align better.

    Pros

    It is a great school to learn about corporate America. Good pay and benefits for entry level.

    Cons

    Slow to move within the company. Mid level managers in J&J are afraid to challenge status quo. In consumer sector what ever Walmart wants is what J&J will do even at a lose.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please remember the credo and live it. In recent years the company has gone away from the credo.
