    I have been working at Ethicon as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good, and they give you lots of hands on experience for future use in the engineering field

    Cons

    Sometimes there is downtime so it can get a little boring, and since it is an FDA regulated company there is alot training associated with all of the FDA regulatory rules.

    I have been working at Ethicon

    Pros

    -Johnson and Johnson company
    -Best products on the market
    -JnJ Benefits
    -most employees work less than 20 hours a week, but will act like they work 60

    Cons

    -horrendous culture (the young talent is leaving by the droves, the only employees that are sticking around are old reps who are making a lot of money)
    -leadership lacks integrity, honesty, and direction
    -It is not about the product or the customer, it is about corporate politics (definition of bureaucracy)
    -no influence over your business
    -everything is going to contracts and surgeons are losing their buying power
    -they continue to downsize the sales force and are heading to a third party salesforce model.
    -If your young and hungry avoid this company like the plague.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to read the Credo and actually live by it. You have forgotten that it is your employees who built this company. You are losing and will continue to lose the best talent in your company. The future is not bright, you may not see the consequences of your actions today, but the business will surely reflect in the future. If you are management and you are reading this you wouldn't agree, because your habit to ignore reason and the truth in order to protect your business will eventually come to an end. Ride the wave as long as you can and good luck when it crashes.

    I have been working at Ethicon full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company has a sense of family, and you are also cared about completely. There is a lot of positive benefits. Lately, there has been a lot of hiring going on to combat the aging employee status. Most of the employees have been there over 20 years. A prime example of how great the company is.

    Cons

    Sometimes management doesn't communicate their messages correctly. Also, senior management doesn't always tackle the problems directly.
