    Pros

    Path to general management goes through marketing. If you survive you'll have an outstanding pedigree. If you're really good you'll advance quickly.

    Cons

    Extremely demanding. Brand managers force ranked by superior's peers, bottom 10% are terminated.

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    People are intelligent, externally competitive, supportive, and ambitious.

    Cons

    Marketing competency varies significantly by company within JNJ. Sometimes it feels like you are working in a finance-led organization rather than marketing-led.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to demonstrate that our people are valued equally or more than business results.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits overall. Culture used to be good in my department but in the past 5 years too much restructure.

    Cons

    Too much restructure. Havent hired younger employees for a long time in my department. Few people leave even if they are not happy maybe because of pension. Promotion not very fair sometimes. Politics.

    Advice to Management

    Make the restructure efficient and not so frequently and seems aimlessly. Promoting people who truly contribute not necessarily only those who are good at talking
