    Pros

    Passionate people, great camaraderie, awesome company values, really helped me learn a lot while on-boarding to the team, well compensated for

    Cons

    Company goals might be over ambitious, personal growth might see a lull after 2-3 years in one position but moving around is definitely encouraged at work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training and personal growth is well taken care of. Company values are always kept at the top of the agenda which is very impressive and inspirational

    Current Employee - Co-Op  in  Los Angeles, CA
    Current Employee - Co-Op in Los Angeles, CA

    Pros

    Managers are pretty flexible with your schedules. People are pretty casual and do have a lot of fun on the corporate side at least. The corporate side of the street is totally different than the plant side, so be sure to do your research on where you'll be.

    Cons

    Depending on your role as a Co-Op you could be given a lot of responsibility or a lot of things that no one else really wants to do. There is no overarching co-op system to assist you so you must go out and find projects on your own, but beware of push back. The mentor program is woefully underdeveloped and the managers have no time for you on a day to day basis. There is not really any training on day to day tasks other than what your front fill teaches you, which may not be everything you need. The organization itself seems understaffed and pretty disorganized from top to bottom. After interning at other companies in comparison I could say that this is not the type of work environment I would want to be in for my career.

    Pros

    1) Work/ life balance for most departments and employees
    2) Great products

    Cons

    1) Horrible management--new hires from East Coast not necessarily J&J are tyrants and do not look out for people within their own department
    2) Hard work does not pay off
    3) A lot of shady back work
    4) No upward mobility in the West Coast

    Pros

    Neutrogena really does seem like the "entrepreneurial" sister of the Johnson & Johnson family. Everyone is extremely supportive and the company lives true to the credo. Lots of ability to grow.

    Cons

    Co-ops must go through J&J to secure full-time positions; often difficult when managers are not from Neutrogena.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Finance, marketing, and sales co-ops should be able to be hired through Neutrogena instead of interviewing through J&J.
