    Pros

    Typically only work 40 hours per week, flexible work schedule if you need to stay home or the roads are bad, summer Friday's, focused on your career development.

    Cons

    A rotational based company (at least within in finance) makes it hard to buy a home or stay in one specific area. Pays in line with "average" healthcare companies but in reality it pays below other most big healthcare companies.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make a rotational career basically necessary to get promoted. Other people who rotate to other cities or location get priority, but it's hard to uproot a family knowing it'll only be for 1.5-3 years.

    Pros

    Development is valued and movement between divisions is common.

    Cons

    Frequent face changes in upper management often leads to shifting priorities and inconsistent strategies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the big picture in mind vs. just progressing your own career.

  6. Co-Op

    Pros

    Fantastic Culture with strong structured progarm

    Cons

    Filling a role does not translate to a true intern experience; your daily duties are all encompassing and branching out to different tasks is rather difficult.

    Pros

    The flexibility is unmatched, this company really leaves by it CREDO, and look for the benefit of their employee.

    Cons

    Posting of job announcement are probably to comply with the law, Upward movement is not the best.

    Pros

    Supportive co-workers
    Great benefits and employee support through health and wellness
    Very interesting work - feel good about working for a company that helps people
    Company encourages work-life balance

    Cons

    Very structured merit/review system based on a curve; only so many people can "excel"
    It's not what you know, but who you know and J&J is all about relationships - if you don't make good connections or get a sponsor, you won't go far
    Significant structure in place to ensure work-life balance however, depending on role and/or manager - how that plays out can vary significantly

    Advice to Management

    In an effort to centralize finance function and standardize processes, please do not take the job requirements and simplify them simply to push down to lower level staff. Following processes and procedures often get in the way of actually getting the work done. Don't push a project forward simply to meet deadlines if the proper work isn't done, otherwise there will be disasterous roll outs (like the HR/payroll debacle)

    Pros

    J&J gives you lots of opportunities to learn, excel, and impress in order to be recommended for the FLDP program. As a co-op, I've been given lots of budgeting responsibilities and projects that focus on my weaknesses. I love my coworkers and the inclusive, community culture here.

    Cons

    There are big expectations, and the stakes are high. Only a few people are recommended for FLDP, so there's a lot of pressure on everyday work.

    Advice to Management

    Interact with "lower" employees more.
