    Pros

    The people at J&J are smart, personable and proactive, which makes for a pleasurable working environment. Work life balance is good, and there are many perks such as an in-office gym.

    Cons

    Different departments can be somewhat compartmentalized. This means that to be effective, developing relationships with cross-functional partners is essential. This is not necessarily a con, but it can be difficult to acclimate when an outsider firsts joins the company.

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, good salaries (used to be better), good opportunities for growth, good overall atmosphere

    Cons

    Constant layoffs across units when the numbers are not met, sometimes those goals are not realistic and the result is people without jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be true and loyal to employees by deed and not my word. Set up realistic goals according to business conditions, and try to avoid laying off people like it there were expendable. Stop using contradictory metrics. Remain faithful to the Credo by action!
