    Pros

    Passionate employees who are committed to advancing new Alzheimer therapies for patients and their caregivers. Management that cares about employees. Excellent benefits.

    The only downside would be the types of things you find at any employer: employees who are never satisfied, politics between department managers, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Janssen AI is fortunate to have many employees who are committed to advancing new Alzheimer therapies for patients and their carevigers. These employees are hard working and passionate about their jobs. Advice would be to do everything you can to retain them.
