    Pros

    Advancement Opportunity, life balance, feeling of accomplishment and achieving good for humanity, great culture

    Cons

    The company is slow due to its team culture. Decisions have to be approved by several people but that's when you get with a 100+ year old company and industry leader

    Pros

    Johnson & Johnson.. It's by far the most profitable retail store in the country, it sells in-demand products, and its employees are among the most friendly and approachable there are.

    Every job has its benefits, just as it has its inherent stresses. Let's take a look at the former.

    Cons

    Nothing .. i didn't find anything here

    Pros

    Great benefits with perks like onsite workout centers.
    Really nice work environment and mostly good, friendly, helpful, and pleasant coworkers
    Global projects that provide opportunity to travel the world, okay, maybe not around the world, but some countries

    Cons

    Corporate politics
    Management doesn't really listen to the employee's voice, even though they encourages brave and honest feedback
