    I have been working at Janssen full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    top notch product portfolio and 1st in class...and very structured training and organized. The parent company johnson and Johnson has many divisions with possible career growth

    Cons

    too many to state all... many check the box tasks that have nothing to do with selling. the environment is one of threats and intimidation and not concerned with developing of employees or retaining quality talent

    Advice to Management

    diversity is a need, not a burden. loosing top talent.

    I have been working at Janssen full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay, challenging work

    Cons

    Too conservative. It takes forever to do simple things. Level of complexity is magnified by the decentralized nature of the business and lack of cohesive vision. Overly tight budgets results in an inability to provide sufficient staffing while at the same time trying to be all things to all people.

    Advice to Management

    Look at streamlining the processes and systems. Overloading people with too much work is ultimately non-productive. 80 hrs/week is not sustainable. Take a look at the number of people on disability due to stress-related illnesses - it's likely the highest in the industry.

    Company is sadly bloated. It has a hard time navigating around the changing market landscape. Tend to repeat the same thing even if it's not working.

    Allow more autonomy and less rules. Less Conference calls, and more down up communication.
