    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to advance
    Benefits are in top 5% of all US Companies
    If you are open to not just listening but hearing there are many excellent colleagues who can teach you how to not onlu survive but thrive.

    Cons

    Anytime you work for a company this size there will be difficult people and difficult situations.
    It isn't what you know but who you know.
    The higher up you go the more stress on your family

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Credo should not be just a "nice to have", it should be what governs ALL decisions but not everyone above got the memo.

    Excellent work-life balance, great people, many opportunities to contribute, very strong moral ethics, positive atmosphere with people who enjoy coming to work everyday

    Internship salaries in some locations/divisions of Johnson & JOhnson are not as competitive as compared to others, but this is standard throughout all companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! It really helps when you interact often with your employees and give us feedback on our work. Monthly update meetings are a great way to give us feedback.

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work for Johnson & Johnson is the benefits package and large pay scale that can be achieved with this company.

    Cons

    The one downside of working for this company is the fact that they are so large you feel as if you're just a number. Also, the particular plant currently employed does not have their act together whatsoever.

    Pros

    good track record of success and integrity. (Just wish this would trickle down the sales organization)

    Cons

    high school all over again

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the people that actually know and call on the customer first hand. Don't depend on getting correct information from middle management. So much of "middle management" is only concerned with getting them selves "ahead" by the time you get information its been twisted and turned to look outstanding all due to the abilities of the management. Reality checks are really important. I persoanlly had great ideas I have passed on to my management and my manager has taken that idea and passed it up the chain of command and stated it was their own. Its such a dog eat dog world. We have way too many chiefs and not enough indians. I wish we could take these managers and put them in the field to generate income, Right now all they do is demotivate the sales force. Most of us are seasoned professionals. We don't need babysitters, we need partners and someone we can use as a resource. (The up side down pyrimid)
