I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

good science is possible with the right leadership

Cons

bad culture - gossip prevails and not only hurts people's feelings but undermines their job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

go back and re-introduce J&J's CREDO, this time with sincerity. Bring back the culture of 2006-2008. Eliminate the legal difficulties with U.S. Federal Agencies; eliminate the fiasco inherent in the hip replacement business. Let something other than seeking double-digit growth at all cost dominate your minds.

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    I worked in a small consumer products business unit within JNJ for 7-8 months as a Finance Co-op.

    The co-op position was very structured with weekly, monthly, and quarterly responsibilities. There is alot of opportunity to get involved in many things outside of your day to day responsibilities. I got the opportunity to present to the National sales director a few times a month and take over all of my supervisors responsibilities.

    There is a lot of training for co-ops such as email etiquette, resume workshops, career advice, mentoring, networking, SAP, excel training ect

    You get meaningful work

    Leadership opportunity if you want it enough

    There is a Co-op organization (that I led) that puts on community service, professional development, and social events.

    Great Resume builder

    Cons

    Half way through my co-op the company restructured and a lot of people were layed off in our business unit. My supervisor was directly impacted and was moved to a different business unit within JNJ. I had to pick up a lot of extra work and then transition parts of it to other Analysts.

    This business unit in particular was about a mile or two down the road from the main campus and if you didn't make a strong effort to reach out to others you could be forgotten.

    Despite lots of hard work and even receiving a leadership award I wasn't recommended to interview for a full-time role due to the limited number of opportunities that year (i.e the restructure) You are ranked on a bell curve against all of the co-ops. It a very political atmosphere. There is not a lot loyalty to their employees. A lot of analysts that I continue to talk with have moved on to other companies. The company creedo isn't truly as focused on as they say.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with more respect and loyalty and place them into roles that challenge their skills and abilities.
