    Pros

    Great benefits, fair pay. Most co-workers are highly motivated and smart Get their work done. Locations was central to most things which was nice.

    Cons

    Large company, so not alot of face time with the higher-ups. If you want to make a change, it first needs to go through the management channels, which takes a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Work on communicating upcoming changes within the company. It's nice to have a sense of what is on the horizon instead of hearing things last minute or from other departments.

  2. Johnson is a great company to work for. They are always offering on going training.

    Pros

    The culture was incredible - great balance between working hard and playing hard. A lot of opportunities to get promoted within. Great pay and benefits. For such a large company, you feel like you actually have a voice that is getting heard (which I've found to be rare within large organizations).

    Cons

    In all honesty... no cons come to mind. As long as you are willing to put in the work, you will be recognized and rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Very forward and marketing-oriented thinking for an engineering-based organization.

    Cons

    The company doesn't always do its due diligence when hiring. Tendency to overlook key gaps in both skill sets and personality/management style in deference to hiring someone from a Fortune 100/500 company.

    Advice to Management

    Do not overlook talent because they do not have a "pedigree" or are over 40.
