    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Working at J&J is a fantastic experience. It is many companies all in one and you can move between companies to get both the "big company" and "small company" experience. Many companies have ethics, J&J has a Credo and in my experience the Credo is the center of everything we do.

    Cons

    Sometimes work life balance can be an issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Application of agile and lean principles to business projects would help to better manage project and product development initiatives.

    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 I have noticed that there are many inefficient and outdated processes which can be changed to improve efficiency.
