    Pros

    Great place to experience as an intern. There are plenty of opportunities for student to learn and grow and secure a full time offer.

    Cons

    Things move a little too slow.

    Pros

    Great company and market reputation. Good salaries and benefits. Challenging work environment. Lots of great employees with very diverse backgrounds so good learning opportunity.

    Cons

    Depends on the team. Could be very chaotic. Culture-driven place. To an outsider coming in new to J&J, its large family of companies can seem very overwhelming so its diversity can be a pro and a con. Depends on the individual. Initiative is a key factor in survival.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the credo. J&J's famous credo is a sublime document created by its founders and it is still followed to a very large extent by a good portion of the company. However, many savvy individuals and managers have found ways to work around it and that's a shame.

  3. Constant restructuring and short term financial management

    Pros

    Great benefits, work that impacts patient healthcare, and if you believe in building strong relationships with your business partners you'll do well as many HRBP's here prefer to partner from a phone/office vs. getting out with their clients.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, slow, and incredibly unproductive political atmosphere. Also constant restructuring for the sake of short term bottom line management. I honestly have lost faith in the Credo we seem to hold to such high standards. Very inconsistent treatment of employees across Op Co's.

    Advice to Management

    Try bottom up leadership and get an understanding of what's really happening with the employees that serve our customers. Actually allow innovative, risk taking employees to thrive vs stifle their enthusiasm.

    Pros

    The work-life balance and culture was great, high beliefs in cross functional alignment which led to higher growth as an individual. Pay and benefits were good.

    Cons

    Environment can be cut-throat at times. If you question management, even in a positive sense, your bound to have some form of blow back regardless of whether it is deserved or not.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the innovative and new-age approach to dealing with everyday problems. Listen to low-level employee's to get their views and values heard.
