    I have been working at Janssen full-time

    Pros

    They have good intentions and have really stepped up in the area of new product development and newly approved meds. Excellent products and improvement in marketing.

    Cons

    They change leadership every couple of years and with it, change strategies, direction, focus, etc. Its hard to keep up with the new Mgmnt faces that revolve in and out. This is disconcerting and frustrating to the field sales force. The ' credo' values of J&J are spoken of, but have mostly disappeared in recent years unfortunately. Much of upper management are from outside J&J and don't seem to have the same loyalty to employees.

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Janssen (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you can get one of the increasingly rare FTE positions, pay is good, the people are fabulous, the work is interesting.

    Cons

    Janssen, like all J&J companies, has a weird habit of systematically devaluing current FTEs. Cubes are shifted around to be smaller, work flow is interrupted regularly by reorgs, current FTEs are pushed down in the hierarchy as new people are placed on the top. They've removed all actual workers, most mangers and are now shaving off Directors, leaving Janssen as a holding company with VPs and above and contractors doing most of the work. As employees reach their 50s or get close to vesting, they should expect to be reorged around and their job disappeared.

    Advice to Management

    You hire the best, stop wasting their expertise in tax-oriented reorgs. Give them the resources and support they need and J&J might last into the end of the 21st century. Stop talking about the Credo, you don't mean a word of it.
