    Pros

    Great workplace, inviting workforce, good atmosphere, great place to learn and grow your skills. Really stress work life balance and healthy living.

    Cons

    As a contractor you are left out of certain activities which can make you feel like a second rate citizen compared to those who are actual employees

    Pros

    Great company culture, big emphasis on work-life balance and employees' well-being. Fantastic pay compared to others in the industry, and great benefits as well. Everyone is very helpful, and you often get to work on projects with other team members who are intelligent and hard working. Management really cares about employees' career and personal growth.

    Cons

    Sometimes things get very hectic and stressful, but then again that surely depends on your role and team responsibilities. Some managers are still stuck in the old "hierarchy" mindset and will make you feel like you are disposable. However, those are just random individuals, because most of management is excellent.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you are not overworking your youngest employees. Kids coming straight out of college will do almost anything to prove themselves, and I often see them struggle with the work life balance. Help them through it and you will have much more productive and happier employees, who will then be less likely to leave to pursue other opportunities.

    Pros

    J&J has incredible culture. You could literally pick any manager to be your mentor. You are working beside the best of the best and they have top-notch training to get you where you need to be. The benefits are wonderful, as well. Highly paid, generous time off, pension, 401k match and extended maternity leave. You should definitely work here if you can!

    Cons

    There is a lot of responsibility, which comes with many hours. The expectations to deliver are high and there is pressure to hit a quota.

    Advice to Management

    Management should keep up the outstanding training, should continue to listen to employee needs and empower each employee to make his/her own career path. It would be nice if there was more visibility to other career paths outside of one operating department.
