Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good team, nice people, the company appreciates its employees. J&J products make the life better, mostly very important for health and well-being.
As for the marketing job, local marketing has some freedom and can apply some initiatives - not everything is done by franchise.

Cons

Really bad work/life balance (for marketing department), lots of SOPs and audit recomendations that make many activities almost impossible. Hard to get promoted

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Supportive of employee efforts
    Benefits - pension!
    Great stock and reputation
    Brand recognition
    Social responsibility programs

    Cons

    Some senior management come in to "rule" instead of lead.
    They sometimes promote problematic management or move them to corporate positions instead of dealing with the root cause

    Advice to Management

    Ensure senior managers understand that employees respond better to leaders and no rulers. A lot of policies are "at managers discretion" so if you report to someone who doesn't believe in telecommuting, then you'll be the lone sole at the office while everyone else works from hom.
