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

    Pros

    One of the most diverse (from a people and a product standpoint), ethical, and and upstanding companies I've ever worked for. The power of the brand is an aid to doing business with outside sources. Strong business that didn't miss a beat in the worst economic times. Many great minds and talented people (offset by a con below). Great opportunities to grow and get placed into different areas and lines of business.

    Cons

    The company is huge, and that scale and it's structure can sometimes make it difficult in an IT role. Generally, the higher you go on the management food chain, the less technology - aware they tend to be. This lack of understanding sometimes leads to head-scratcher decisions and 'just snap your fingers and make the technology get done' attitudes that are difficult. Huge bureaucracy can cause delays with legal, procurement, security, and regulatory concerns that cripple deadlines. Some entrenched networks of dead wood, blocker-type employees are also obstacle at times.

    Advice to Management

    Strive to build a period of management stability, and consistent practices. Find a way to ensure that decentralization doesn't breed disconnection, and lose opportunities for economies of scale. Clean up dead wood.

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are commitments to doing basic research and making J&J one of the leaders in areas such as Alzheimer's Diagnosis and Treatment

    Cons

    Innovation is present in pockets. While I have been lucky to be in such a group, not everyone has this opportunity

    Advice to Management

    To take a longer (non annual) view in terms of evaluating research productivity. Allow more exploration into the basic sciences
