    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Janssen Pharmaceutica full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Insurance and 401k plan that is it

    Cons

    Worst Company I have ever worked for. Management treats people like children when there is no need. National sales Meeting a joke-Just a pep rally nothing of value, .Micromanagement at its best. Only reason people micromanage is because they are so unsure of themselves and can't do anything else.

    I have been working at Janssen Pharmaceutica full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good company, great people dedicated to helping patient and one another. Pay is pretty good and benefits of being Johnson & Johnson employee are great.

    Cons

    Efforts to ensure collaboration among teams and franchises are a bit over done at times and ignore some practical realities. But, they are trying to always be better.

    I have been working at Janssen Pharmaceutica for more than a year

    Pros

    Nothing about this job will make you happy

    Cons

    12hr work day, dirty office spaces, no room for sick time off, extremely poor work life balance, negative competition amongst managers, no resources for training, cafe food is unappetizing, poorly maintained drinking water units, empty talks of worklife balance and J&J Credo - They are not hold true. The Finance team at Janssen is know for working some crazy hours. Yes, you read it right. Most of the analysts are working more than 70 hours a week. Things just gets worse during month/quarter end closes. Management will never acknowledge your efforts by putting overtime and instead throw more work at your desk. Management does not have industry experience and technical accounting knowledge to guide team in right direction. As a result managers do not agree with each other where there is impact across other accounting teams. Managers will put blame on you when your reach out to them for guidance and ask you to work independently. It is very difficult to even ask for sick time off, managers seem very uncomfortable if your request to take day off to recover. The reason is that managers do not want to be held responsible for any inquiries from other finance teams in your absence. This again ties to them not having technical accounting knowledge in application to manufacturing setting. Except minimum to zero transitional training when you start new with team, it helps a bit if you are applying internally and have a J&J experience of over 3 years. ERP systems are not set up correctly and often do not provide the level of detail you may require to analyse any transaction. I would recommend anyone who is currently employed to stay clear of this firm, those who are currently unemployed can take their chance as they have noting more to lose. But be prepared to get tortured by managers and peers. Honestly there are other job opportunities worth seeking. Save yourself from stress levels that are alarmingly harmful to your health and work life balance.
