    Pros

    This company fosters a great Teamwork atmosphere and allows for plenty of growth opportunities. Woking here provides me with a sense of security and pride that what I do here impacts our customers.

    Cons

    Working in a small plant does not allow for that much growth opportunity. There should be a program to allow others to shadow other positions to understand the business a a whole.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that the Credo is being applied to everything we do from the top down. Building trust with the manufacturing floor will have great benefits in order to keep our Safety, Compliance and Moral moving in the right direction.

    Plenty of opportunities to advance
    Benefits are in top 5% of all US Companies
    If you are open to not just listening but hearing there are many excellent colleagues who can teach you how to not onlu survive but thrive.

    Advice to Management

    The Credo should not be just a "nice to have", it should be what governs ALL decisions but not everyone above got the memo.

    Excellent work-life balance, great people, many opportunities to contribute, very strong moral ethics, positive atmosphere with people who enjoy coming to work everyday

    Cons

    Internship salaries in some locations/divisions of Johnson & JOhnson are not as competitive as compared to others, but this is standard throughout all companies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! It really helps when you interact often with your employees and give us feedback on our work. Monthly update meetings are a great way to give us feedback.

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work for Johnson & Johnson is the benefits package and large pay scale that can be achieved with this company.

    Cons

    The one downside of working for this company is the fact that they are so large you feel as if you're just a number. Also, the particular plant currently employed does not have their act together whatsoever.

    Pros

    good track record of success and integrity. (Just wish this would trickle down the sales organization)

    Cons

    high school all over again

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the people that actually know and call on the customer first hand. Don't depend on getting correct information from middle management. So much of "middle management" is only concerned with getting them selves "ahead" by the time you get information its been twisted and turned to look outstanding all due to the abilities of the management. Reality checks are really important. I persoanlly had great ideas I have passed on to my management and my manager has taken that idea and passed it up the chain of command and stated it was their own. Its such a dog eat dog world. We have way too many chiefs and not enough indians. I wish we could take these managers and put them in the field to generate income, Right now all they do is demotivate the sales force. Most of us are seasoned professionals. We don't need babysitters, we need partners and someone we can use as a resource. (The up side down pyrimid)
