  2. As a subsidiary of Johnson and Johnson, Inc., Neutrogena Corporation claims to have a small company culture.

    Pros

    If you're a full-time, permanent Neutrogena employee, you get benefits, such as, medical, dental, vision, 401K. Some managers, co-workers are great mentors and support your growth in your career.

    Cons

    Contract and Temporary Employees don't receive the same medical, dental, vision, 401K benefits, compared to the permanent full-time Neutrogena employees.
    Office culture and politcs are more like those in a large corporation, instead of those in a small company culture. Very cut-throat if you don't put in the overtime hours and extra efforts to win over management. Favortism runs rampant in various departments.

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees for measurable results, dedication, perseverence, great attitudes, and respectful team-player actions, rather than, just give those who play well into the office politics, the ability to advance in the company.

    Pros

    Neutrogena was a great place to work for. My experience with the company during my time there was that it was a very creative environment, all departments working together to produce very innovative and beautiful products. Excellent pay and benefits. Most of my co-workers in Los Angeles were very talented, professional and great to work with! My business partners at parent company, Johnson & Johnson (New Jersey) were very professional and a joy to work with!

    Cons

    Astounding amount of restructuring within the last two years.

    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

    - Having 1/2 day Fridays
    - It's a good place to start your career and learn

    Cons

    This place runs on contractors, however as a contractor you don't even have the basic workers rights!
    Not even personal and sick days (absolutely ridiculous)
    On top of that, they luck you up in specific time sheet structure, and you can't work outside that framework!
    Major gap between how they treat employees vs. contractors.

    Advice to Management

    At least try to provide the basics for contractors. A little appreciation would go a long way specially when you have contractors that are in charge of multi million dollar projects!
