      Pros

      Benefits are amazing, take care of you.

      Pros

      Division of Johnson and Johnson. in theory there is a lot of opportunity within the company as a whole.

      Cons

      Low pay. expensive benefits. Lack of respect from senior management. turnover is high. products are constantly on backorder or being recalled. Our customers hate dealing with our company. there is little to no true innovation and we are told to push the newest line extension on our customers for a huge price premium then the company backorders or recalls the product. Not well run.

      Advice to Management

      value your employees. listen to your customers and stop thinking you are the only choice our customers are tired of it.

      Pros

      Strong Brand recognition among customers

      Cons

      Focus is only on getting work done - the what vs building a team spirit, focus on customers, employees etc like the credo says. When convenient they flaunt the credo on your face but act as if only the last paragraph on stakeholders is what matters. Company hasn’t innovated in years and business results reflect that.

      Advice to Management
