    Pros

    Value driven company that takes care of their employees. A place you can be proud to work.

    Hard to go from contract to fulltime position. Infighting can lead to a toxic environment and feels counter to the mission of the company.

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

    Pros

    Amazing benefits packages, one of the last companies with a pension option. If you like a large company atmosphere this is the place to be.

    Cons

    Very top down and structured organization. If you have worked military or government then you would likely feel at home here. Do not expect reciprocated company loyalty. Do your job well and build your own resume while there so you can easily move on if the cuts come to your group.
