    Pros

    they put a huge priority on work-life balance which makes this a very pleasant place to work and a great company to stay at long-term.

    Cons

    there is a huge co-op program but they only hire around 5 new college hires each year so this is not the company to choose if you're looking for an internship/co-op that will be a sure full time job after graduation.

    Competitive culture with healthcare changing everyday. The industry is currently unstable due to uncertainty of ACA.

    Pros

    EES supports a work-life balance and respects the idea everyone has a family.

    Cons

    Management / upper management still act under the "good ol' boys club." Don't forget your khaki pants and blue blazer.

    Pros

    Good company name, pay and benefits with J&J behind it. Ethicon management open to new ideas and business markets.

    Cons

    Terrible HR in general for J&J. Many decisions regarding staffing and cuts come from J&J corporate Vs allowing operating companies who understand their business to hit numbers. Cuts eliminate "job types" regardless of performance. So, top players can be out a job, if the cut hits the job they are in that day. Lower performing, including those on formal performance improvements are not impacted if their job is not designated. So - general sentiment is that your performance will help your rating. But if you promote or move to a new job, your top performing skills won't help you.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job protecting your top talent. I have stolen many of them at my new company.

    Pros

    The sales reps are generally quality individuals with a high emphasis on clinical knowledge. Depending on where you land, the teamwork aspect can be very beneficial.

    Cons

    The leadership is highly focused on having yes men. They do not appreciate questions about why. Nor are they open to innovation.

    Pros

    They take care of employees well.

    Cons

    No internal capability to execute much of anything. Most jobs/employees are so narrow in their skills and focus they cannot execute simple projects. They compensate by hiring costly contract help which does not work very well.
    Company losing market share and unable to successful launch any new innovative products despite years of high investment in developing new products.

    Advice to Management

    J+J is best at buying new ideas from start ups and growing them. Stick to this model.

    Pros

    You have a lot of opportunities to learn.
    Culture is great. I actually enjoyed going to work everyday.
    Awesome opportunity to interact with biology as a mechanical engineer.

    Cons

    They do not offer you full time position based on your performance but rather your ability to interview.
    Budget cuts can happen and there has been a lot of restructuring making understanding the business and how it functions a little more difficult.

    Pros

    Autonomy, salary, benefits, tangible reward of seeing products help patients, customer relationships, high level experience, company vehicle, continual learning

    Penalized financially for those who literally "own" their territory market, some DM's unethical practices, Disconnect from management to what actually goes on in the field, DM's control vacation usage.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know the customers, "Believe" the information reps are sharing with you, act versus react, treat reps with respect
