I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great people to work with; flexible work schedules with the ability to work from home; good travel opportunities; cross-company project experience; focus on professional development.

Cons

Not good for people wanting technical work; management sometimes does not give very clear direction; some people are overworked. performance evaluations are unfair to folks doing support work and those with goals that are not up to par with others at the same level.

    Pros

    They still have a pension (5 years to vest), best health insurance I've had, you get their Rx products for free if you need them.

    Cons

    If your boss acts inappropriately its best just to keep quiet, try to kiss up so you get a good review, and then move on to another position. HR will never call a manager into question, I witnessed it with other people before experiencing it myself.

    Advice to Management

    When the average tenure in a group is less than 18 months, you might want to review the manager.


  2. "Great brand management training and a lot of responsibility, but the culture is poisoned w/ office politics."

    Pros

    You have access to great training programs, from advertising development and agency management to communication skills to market research methods. There are high expectations for each brand and each employee which means marketers are given a lot of responsibility; it always felt like each brand was running their own business and worked closely with cross-functional partners. Marketing at J&J is really more brand management/general management.

    Cons

    The biggest downside is by far the culture. It is driven by office politics and sadly the most aggressive and some might say manipulative personalities (vs. the most merit-deserving) tend to rise to the top. At the ABM level, it's really more of an up -or-out system.

    Advice to Management

    The company may say that it invites different leadership styles but it doesn't follow through. Be clear and upfront in the interview process and development process about what personalities are a good fit with the culture and have the best chance of being successful at the company. Or, allow different career paths for those who have different leadership styles.
