    Pros

    Great benefits, great people, good pay, good culture, invests in people Good corporate citizen. It's a hard company to leave.

    Musical chairs of management. Very political. New management comes in and clears out old VPs and directors. Multiple different hiring freezes.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing musical chairs and focus on long term vision. Too many reorganizations without clear benefit.

    Pros

    J&J is a company that really cares about their employees (and also the community)! It is the reason why everyone who works there as an employee has been with the company for 20+ years. It is very rare to find an employee move to a different company because everyone always stays at J&J. It is very family oriented and coworkers all care about each other. J&J is also full of intelligent people who like to work and get work done! There are no slackers at J&J, and it is one of the reasons the employment process is so selective! Work/Life Balance is also great. They let you take your laptop home in case you have an emergency and need to work remotely. Also, everyone treats each other FAIRLY based on your character, not by your position. Whether you are a VP, associate, janitor, manager... everyone respects each other.

    Cons

    As with any job, if you are in a small team, be prepared with more work than others.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time

    Pros

    Great staff and training and development is encouraged. Fabulous R&D.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities to grow. Limited opportunities for women. J&J used to "walk the walk" in regard to the Credo; especially in regard to the employees. That no longer applies and the Credo now caters to the Stockholders first, all others are lower on the list. That is unfortunate.

    Advice to Management

    Go back and see what worked in the past. Review past Credo surveys and see where (and why) the magic disappeared. Treat your older (age 45+) employees better. They offer a wealth of knowledge.
