Decentralized nature of business does make decision making convoluted. Complex IT systems make data based decision making a nightmare in some operating companies. Unstructured HR processes sometimes makes sycophancy and perception score over true abilities in career advancement

Better succession planning process, short term P&L focus can sometimes lead to incorrect decision for the long term good of the company

    Pros

    JJHCS has good pay, due to the senior levels from which they hire
    Ability to network across the J&J family of companies
    Learning the broad health care marketplace, by representing all of J&J

    Cons

    Don't expect to transition back to another J&J Operating Company at a similar or higher level- it's almost impossible- Most people take a step back in title. Even this is difficult. The Operating Companies don't understand or respect this position
    Lack of respect from the Operating Companies- Not much direction on what should be done and very few resources and tools to provide to your customers.
    This company and position sound great on paper, but in reality aren't good positions for moving your career forward.

    Advice to Management

    Have dedicated account teams that the operating companies support. Invest in marketing capabilities and establish resources from the operating companies that account managment can utilize in their accounts. Get alignment on succession planning opportunities back at the operating companies that reward the expertise and experience this position provides.

    Pros

    J&J provides an acceptable work/live balance and tools to make your work. Fair payment and bonuses.

    Cons

    The company seems to function in silos where different areas of the organization are completely disconnected. Micromanagement is clearly evident and new ideas are usually not welcome. Not all the senior managers are aligned with the Credo and it is applied when is advantageous for the company. The recent changes driven by “globalization” added complexity to certain processes that need local tweaking.

    Advice to Management

    The beloved "Credo" is been used to steer important decisions to protect their name and brands. However I evidenced that is not been used to the same extend to protect the wellbeing of the employees.
