    Pros

    Esteemed co by consumers, media, and agency partners. Big brand experience.

    Cons

    Politics rule. Advancement is awarded without merit for those that align closely to those with political agendas. Leadership is poor, out of touch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the businesses, do not enable or tolerate politic agendas, get in touch with employees.

    Not Bad

    Current Employee - Analyst in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Analyst in New York, NY

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Credo does govern highest management; each company has some autonomy; internal people who have been with the company are less cut throat; there are growth opportunities

    Cons

    Wages can be lower than other companies in the industry; depending upon organization, technology may not be the latest, or even may undermine getting work done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open to change does not only mean hearing suggestions, it involves finding a way to implement them in a structured orderly fashion. That also does not mean a new initiative every 13 months.

    A little stale. While the compensation isn't exploitive, I think the delegation and compensation imbalance is.

    Pros

    Good people, generally. There are a lot of smart people working below capacity.

    Cons

    Lack of design focus. J&J needs to wake up as an organization and realize business and design are connected at the hip.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent, be more honest.
