    Pros

    Very flexible work environment, great organizational culture, and motivated intellectuals keep you motivated to excel in your career. The perks are amazing for those who use JNJ products. Employees have the ability to purchase products at very affordable prices. Each company within the organization has a similar but different culture that helps define each company

    Cons

    Some cultures within JNJ are a little too cutthroat. The reason why flexible time management is necessary is because if not, you find yourself working 60-80hr weeks to hit deadlines every month!

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson

    Pros

    Great pipeline and strong long-term strategy. Solid leadership (finally). Starting to see new opportunities and am confident that we have a bright mid-term future. Confident that the company puts its ethics and patients first.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is not great and we seem chronically understaffed. Can be challenging to move up since organizations tend to be very flat. A hard organization to start in, since success is built on collaboration and knowing people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We rely very heavily on consultants -- wouldn't it be better to assess the needs of the group and hire more staffers? We tend to be somewhat top-heavy -- where are the opportunities for young people?
