    I have been working at Janssen full-time

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity to earn commission, company car, organization is well managed. Excellent pension and 401k.

    Cons

    Crappy health insurance. Considering Janssen is owned by Johnson& Johnson your think there'd have better health insurance. Stingy vacation time.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to select local health insurers. Give the option to pay more for better coverage. Increase time off.

    Pros

    Great Company. Great Benefits and 401k. Great Bonus Plan. Flexible.

    Cons

    Advancement relies solely on education and not as much by experience. You can have 15 years experience, but without a degree you are stuck.

    I have been working at Janssen full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Janssen is part of the Johnson & Johnson family of companies. J&J is a fabulous company to work for. They truly care about their employees and value their work and contributions. Compensation is much higher than my previous job at another Pharma company. They offer up to 17 weeks of paid time off for maternity leave. Health/retirement benefits are competitive with other big Pharma companies. As a company they embrace helping employees succeed in their careers and helping them move into positions/promotions that meet their career goals.

    Cons

    I personally haven't found anything I don't like about the company yet. I have been there almost a year. I think for the most part, if you are a good worker, it will pay off to you, and if you are not, you won't have the same opportunities.
