    Former Employee - Clinical Pharmacology Co-op in Radnor, PA

    I worked at Janssen as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Janssen as a great place to start my career in industry. I was treated as an equal, given real responsibilities and projects, and respected as an individual. I worked in R&D and was able to present in group meetings, attend conferences, and truly build my skills.

    Cons

    As in all companies, there seemed to be dissent among non-management workers about the decisions of upper management. Office politics were very real, and managers certainly had favorites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be restricted by preconceived notions or office rumors.

    I worked at Janssen as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Biologics are contributing to a larger portion of Johnson & Johnson's revenue. There is a lot of emphasis on expanding Janssen Pharmaceuticals to help sustain and improve the company's share in the biologics space, especially after the success of Remicade and Stellara.

    Cons

    Don't have many entry-level positions available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow new and fresh talent to get in more easily.

    Former Employee - District Sales Manager

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

    Pros

    Experienced management and a small company feel. Janssen respects those that take informed risks. Development of associates at all levels is a cornerstone of the company's success.

    Cons

    As with any pharmaceutical company at this point in time there is a high degree of uncertainty but if you thrive in ambiguity, you'll do just fine!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be transparent in every way possible as it builds associate trust and respect.

    Pros

    Collaborative environment
    Great teams with talented individuals
    Strength in marketing
    Good formalized development programs

    Cons

    Some senior leaders are focused on their own agenda and advancement and are not supportive of their teams
    Depends on where you are in the organization -- slightly different cultures depending on location
    Politics tend to contribute to advancement opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Despite initiatives in employee engagement, would be helpful for organization if senior management really embaced this.

    I worked at Janssen full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Given significant responsibility in junior positions and freedom to succeed. Also, provided plenty of resources and additional training both at Janssen and J&J.

    Cons

    If you did not work your way up through sales you will need to work extra hard to understand the sales environment. Many brand managers and Sr. management started in pharma sales.

    The Credo is for show. Don't believe it. Don't believe them when they say uncapped bonus.
