    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson

    Pros

    The company itself is solid. Really good pay and benefits. Minus the stress, politics and lack of expertise, the company really is a good place to work.

    Cons

    Upper management really doesn't know what they are doing. Projects all around seem to fail consistently. Management decisions or lack thereof leads to a trickle down effect of failure which leads to an extremely stressful work environment. Bonuses and politics seems to drive a lot of decisions by upper management. Very disappointing because the company itself is a good place to work.

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time

    Pros

    Have worked in multiple parts of the organization; good flexibility in where your career can go and opportunities to work in multiple industries. Great company store and flexibility in making your own schedule.

    Cons

    Some departments are good; others are very political and hard to get ahead in. Really need a good manager to be successful in driving your career. Performance review process can make or break you if you don't have the right support.

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very big on mentorship (or I would even say "sponsorship") and growing employees. Open to new ideas. Company store/products are extremely convenient. Women's products in the bathrooms is extremely helpful and relives stress of having to carry necessary monthly materials on my own - you have NO idea how much this helps :) EXTREMELY flexible work/life balance. Very diverse and from what I have seen most people really LISTEN to one another and care. Meetings start out with viritual hugs - or even in real life hugs! The Credo is not just a marketing tactic - posted all over the office, in cubes, meeting rooms, reference throughout while making business decision. The patient really IS at the center of every single choice made.

    Cons

    Hard to get into, even if you already interned, but with persistence it can be done!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We are on a great path - thank you!

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    As people move across the sectors your sphere of relationships grow providing more and more opportunities. this may begin to shift as Senior Management has been bringing in external talent as of the last year or two.

    Cons

    Connections and visability play a huge role in promotions and rewards
