    Pros

    Good benefits, company store, credo

    Cons

    Unless you are picked for a promotion don't expect it to happen.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your directors. They are ruining the lifeblood of your company; your employees! In a scientific position you should be able to think and give feedback. At Janssen this is considered that you're not a team player. Salaries here are lower than most of industry.

    I have been working at Janssen full-time

    Pros

    16 weeks for maternity leave, 8 weeks for paternity leave. Up to 40 hours for family work time (take your kid to doctors etc) plus 40 hours of sick leave.

    Headcount is always the barrier for anyone to get promoted. Really need to distinguish yourself among the herd to get noticed
