    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

    Very supportive group of people. Friendly environment. If you don't know something, do not be afraid to ask for help. People are very willing to help you out!

    Cons

    Currently I don't have anything negative to say about the experience. It starts a little slow in the beginning because you may not have a project assigned to you right away.

    Pros

    Very nurturing environment. The company has a nice policy of routinely rewarding top performers/successful project completion with certificates and a small cash bonus. The company also treats the employees with great respect and a generous compensation even in the face of impending lay-offs.

    Cons

    The company likes to start new employees at lower base pay and try to compensate by giving hiring bonus or some form of milestone payments. Sometimes this approach can work against the future salary prospects of an employee.

    Advice to Management

    Please do not acquire companies as quickly as you fold them up laying off thousands of employees and disrupting their careers and personal lives forever...

    Pros

    One of the best parts about working at J&J is the people and the culture. Everyone is extremely friendly, always saying hi to you in the hallway even if you don’t know them, and helpful, they will spend the extra time to explain something to you if you want clarification, or take the time out of their day to sit down with you one on one and to talk about their background, experience, current position, and answer any questions you may have. There are many opportunities to network within the company and explore what fields you may be interested in and where you can see yourself working in the future.

    Cons

    Lots of politics, like any major organization.

    Advice to Management

    I love my manager but I know many co-ops that do not like their manager. My advice would be to have the co-ops rate their manager which will allow HR to decide whether or not that manager has the opportunity to have a co-op or not.

    Pros

    Flexible, good pay, great benefits, excellent management, awesome benefits package, leadership opportunities, networking opportunities, large network of employees...everything

    Cons

    recently divested two major operating companies, could divest more in the future..besides that the company is great to work for and most employees have nothing to complain about!

    Advice to Management

    management generally does a great job with employees. They are trained with the tools and knowledge to help others succeed. Keep it up!
