    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.

    Real life hunger games--tainted by J&J's culture of instilling hopelessness in employees

    1) Work/ life balance for most departments and employees

    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

    The majority of managers support work/life balance, the culture is amazing, the environment is very down to earth and comfortable

    Cons

    There were no downsides in my personal experience of working at Neutrogena. My problem was with a manager, who was not a true representation of what Neutrogena stands for and meant to me.

    Advice to Management

    Your support of work/life balance greatly contributes to the morale and productivity of your employees. Please keep up the great work in the area. It means a lot to the people that work for you.

    Pros

    Co workers are nice, and everyone is in the same sinking boat.

    Discount on products.

    Cons

    No structure. People do what they want,no repercussions for bad behavior or recognition for going above and beyond.

    No encouragement for growth. Actual quote from supervisor was "this is not JnJ university"

    Temp employees get treated like second class citizens.
    (not invited to meetings/separate lines at events/ even raffle tickets are different)
    Why train someone (SOP/methods/etc) and not convert to permanent postions.
    Productivity of temps dies out near end of contract.

    No harmony or communication between planning procurement or QA only when something gets pushed up to priority status.

    Pros

    Smart and collaboration employees. A great line of storied products and a constant stream of innovative ones that disrupt the marketplace in a good way.

    Cons

    The organization is challenged in terms of meeting the parent company J&J's aggressive financial and regulatory objectives. The net result is a combative environment, lack of trust in certain instances, and less than objective assessment of employee performance in some instances.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employee development and prioritizing a deep dive of organization versus individual performance.
