    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    J&J has a very strong Credo, which the company, and it's employees take very seriously. Within that Credo, it mentions Customer, Communities, Employees, and Stockholders, in that order. Each year, the Company conducts a credo survey of all it's employees, and the anonymized results of that survey are made public, and addressed accordingly. It's very effective.

    Cons

    Leadership within IT should stay focused on the long-term welfare of it's employees. Employees are a very long-term investment, and should be viewed as such.

    Pros

    Great Benefits (Salary, Bonus, Health Insurance, Holidays/Vacation/Sick)

    Cons

    If you aren't one of the people identified for getting fast tracked, it will be difficult to move up the management ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The lack of internal innovation and funds for R&D will eventually catch up to the company.

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly people, great managers who are interested in developing young talent. Awesome opportunities to gain insight to a variety of different projects across functions - if you are interested in another function or project, it's easy to learn more just by asking. Coffee culture means that you can sit down for a one-on-one with any full-timer (managers included) and chat with them about their experiences. Also great rapport among intern classes.

    Cons

    Huge company, so all the difficulties of a huge company: long project timelines, sometimes HR is slow to respond, there can be issues with communications across departments... but nothing that can't be resolved

    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
