    I have been working at Biosense Webster full-time

    Pros

    As part of the Johnson & Johnson family of companies, this role is a great way to start your career and offers excellent benefits such as a company car, pension plan and lifetime health insurance if you stay with the company.

    Cons

    They are very strict on how you move through the company so it will take longer to move up even if you are an experienced professional.

    Advice to Management

    Don't keep your teams so lean that employees are afraid to take vacation.

    I have been working at Biosense Webster full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Solid pay, Credo-based, good products

    Cons

    Right hand doesn't know what left hand is doing. Poor infrastructure that makes operating difficult. Worthless 'development' program. Problems never seem to get solved because of disconnect with upper-level management and boots on the ground.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your RBD's more autonomy. Create a forum to open dialogue between Leaders and workers and between Engineers and Clinicals. Clinicals know more than you about needs of the customer.

    Pros

    Co workers. Job satisfaction. Ability to advance. Company getting more flexible to accommodate customers. Tons of new products to insert into any scenario.

    Pros

    This is the fastest growing and profitable business unit of all J&J companies. The benefits are great including pension and 401k matching. Depends on the department and the manager you work for, you can get flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Since the company is growing aggressively and to keep the money in the bank, you're asked to do more than your job. If you're unlucky enough to work under an inexperience manager, your work life can be over.

    Advice to Management

    Before you promote someone to a managerial level, PLEASE make sure that person has enough experience and personality to manage people. Otherwise, the company will lose its credibility and talents.
