Current Employee - Manager in Horsham, PA

I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Nice people to work with. Very caring and supportive. Benefits are good and office environment very favorable.

Cons

Lack of promotional advancement. Encore awards are only given out to the "fair haired children" and usually for very insignificant things. Don't make the slightest mistake because they'll bring it up over and again and your entire year's performance rating will hinge on it. Big accomplishments and dedication are virtually ignored unless it's something that made the executives look good. Too much work to ever be successful or to avoid making little mistakes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop focusing on the little things; quit worrying about your own image and look after your people. The Leadership Imperatives supposedly weren't put in place to depress performance levels but rather to help those who otherwise wouldn't be recognized for their achievements get recognized.

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fairly pleasant working environment, possible to do serious work if motivated to do so. It is also easy, as a statistician, to work multiple partners (R&D, manufacturing, regulatory, etc.) on a variety of projects.

    Cons

    Big-company culture (Dilbertland), must push hard to cut through the politics to get recognition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get away from a culture that focuses so heavily on pure profit-making, and think more sincerely about the interests of customers and employees.
