    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    You are treated as an actual employee and have the chance to learn as much as you set your mind to. The sky is the limit with this company and the older employees love to see the co-ops grow during the program. However I will say that there is not a lot of structure to the co-op position, it is what you make of it. You will have the chance to work with many different people and many different software programs. The knowledge you will gain at Johnson & Johnson is incomparable to anything you will learn in a classroom.

    Cons

    Some of the systems are old, and other students interning with other companies get to use much more advanced and newer software. Another drawback is the program is not designed around the intent to hire any of the co-ops for full time. Sometimes I believe this discourages kids because they assume that even if they do a good job, Johnson & Johnson will not want to retain you. This is a huge drawback of the company because they are not recognizing and utilizing all of this fresh, new talent that they are bringing in each year. If they were to hire more co-ops I think they could be much up to speed with the current times instead of stuck in their old ways which they somewhat are.

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Office culture is awesome, most of the people are young and everyone is very friendly and willing to help you out. Experience as an intern is amazing. They treat you like a full-time salaried employee. Work, life balance is also great and they are very flexible with students who need to take classes.

    Cons

    Its a huge corporation so you'll be a tiny ant in an ocean. This diminishes the workplace experience and tight network that smaller companies offer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to review their goals and current processes. I have noticed that there are many inefficient and outdated processes which can be changed to improve efficiency.

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Stable, good work/life balance (depending on your Manager), plenty of opportunities to move around within the company (laterally)...

    Cons

    Difficult to climb up the ladder due to bottleneck; new positions do not get created quickly for upward movement. Instead you have to wait for your superiors to move on, which can take plenty of years...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create additional levels in the organization chart but manage them effectively...

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great experience starting a career in their finance rotational program (FLDP). Learned all of the skills necessary to move on to a career that was more meaningful for me. This is a fantastic, stable company for moms and dads. Great "work-life balance."

    Cons

    Working in remote locations away from cities did not appeal to me for the long term. Project work was not as readily available as I would have liked. Pipeline to manager is overly stuffed by their rotational programs, so you will find that many people start their careers there and leave for advancement opportunities.
