    Former Employee - Senior IT Project Manager- Contrac in Raritan, NJ

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Interesting IT project assignments in consumer, medical devices and pharmaceuticals. Promotes from within. Strong skills training and employee development

    Cons

    Constant change yearly as new companies are acquired and merged into the organization. New IT managers from acquired firms are not willing to take risks after many have been let go. Some Full Time employees (business) consider IT contractors as "hired help" and are not willing to cooperate fully during projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve management of supply of IT contractors with ongoing demand for IT talent and reassign IT contractors within NJ locations as they finish one contract; rather than having this talent exit and have to reapply later for a new contract in another part of organization. Consider an internal contract web site where IT and other functional consultants can see postings for contract assignments that they can apply for...just as FT employees can see posted FT openings.

    Best learning experience I could have asked for!

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson

    Pros

    The work environment is amazing! Everyone works as a family. There are so many people to offer help from and to learn from. I am so thankful for the amount of skills I have gained from this co-op. I was truly happy to enter the office every day and it was mainly because of the great people I worked with.

    Cons

    The technology is surprisingly basic. Everything is done from scratch off of excel. I think they are working on improving the software. I think some assignments were ridiculous because if there was a software the assignment would take 10 minutes, but because we have to create everything based off excel it may take days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve technology

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time

    Pros

    Offers a variety of experiences, companies, and industries, while maintaining tenure with one company. Also, very family-friendly. Great benefits as well. The value system (Credo) is present throughout the company, at all levels.

    Cons

    Can't think of any! I guess it can be said that their hiring process moves very slowly, so if you're in the interviewing process, be patient!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
