    Pros

    The work-life balance and culture was great, high beliefs in cross functional alignment which led to higher growth as an individual. Pay and benefits were good.

    Cons

    Environment can be cut-throat at times. If you question management, even in a positive sense, your bound to have some form of blow back regardless of whether it is deserved or not.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the innovative and new-age approach to dealing with everyday problems. Listen to low-level employee's to get their views and values heard.

    Pros

    If you want to learn to be the best this is the place to develop. It is the best in terms of Marketing, Technically and in Management. They are very deep in talent, and want to develop and cross train all their people. The only limit here is you.

    Cons

    There are always some politics in a large company, and this one is no exception. But you can succeed without the politics. Eventually someone will notice your talent, and you have to be patient. But well worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do, you are the best at it.

    Pros

    Amazing culture, company values, work-life balance, exposure to upper management level, interesting work, projects, J&J Credo.
    As an intern I got exposure to different departments of J&J Consumer. I interacted with senior managers, and learned a lot about supply chain. My projects were taken into consideration and implemented.

    Cons

    Management constantly changing, decentralized teams sometimes overlap on same work. I met some other interns who were stuck doing reports without adding much contributions to their own learning.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, financially stable company. Easy recruiting process overall. I met some really great people, although most are near retirement or looking to leave.

    Cons

    The company culture is gone after multiple very large layoffs and can be a challenge to be accepted (very clique). Some individuals are very war-torn after multiple layoffs and difficult times.

    Advice to Management

    This is an American company with American values, so have great memory. Identify the leaders that believe in the core values (look to your retired veterans that pulled the company through the Tylenol Crisis) and rebuild from the basics. I hope this company returns to it's glory days and supports American job growth.

    Contractors don't get the same benefits employees do. Plus it takes a while to become permanent at the company if you come in as a contractor.

    Pros

    Laid back working environment, management are down to earth and approachable, Free access to the gym which is on site, The ability to work from home.

    Cons

    The company is built upon contractors more than employees but the contractors do feel second class. It is difficult to impress management because of the lack of trust among different departments.

    Advice to Management

    If you see potential in someone, train them and raise them so they achieve their goals. Please don't let let them leave for other opportunities.
