    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great mission and values (Credo) driven organization. Great products and a willingness to try new ways of doing things (but still has a hard time of giving up the past).

    Cons

    Political, complex to navigate and need to know people to navigate. Embraced diversity (which is good) but the drive for diversity has led to some less than perfect hires/promotions.

    Pros

    Benefits, work environment, CEO and senior leadership, Credo

    On the business unit level, the credo is lip service; fuzzy numbers, lack of leadership; culture of younger generation with little desire to learn tribal knowledge from the experts

    Listen and observe before judging or acting

    Pros

    Johnson and Johnson offers benefits to help their employees further their education. The benefits are exceptional. Great work and family balance.

    Cons

    If you do not have at least a bachelors degree, do not bother applying.

    Advice to Management

    I feel they should put as much consideration into life experience and job performance as they do with academic achievements, when looking for new talent. I worked for the company for 17 years and was actively working towards my degree when my department went through a reorganization. I had the qualifications to apply for other jobs within the company but could not be placed i because I had not yet completed my degree. I would have been able to complete my degree and perform well in a new position but I was not given the opportunity.

    Re-organized the entire computer systems that includes major supply chains like Walmart, K-mart, Target, CVS, etc. Won best supplier award at Walmart on month of December 2004.

    Cons

    When an employee is reprimanded and not listen why & when the reprimand is all about, it is totally upsetting. also when it does not go my way and the barriers of communication is undermined it really makes me mad.

    Advice to Management

    Must organized priorities according to their needs as well as setting up systems & procedures in all aspects as the market dictates.

    development planning

    Cons

    few millennials
    ageism
    hard to get promoted in title (not $)

    Advice to Management

    Do more to keep and attract all generations. It's primarily a baby boomer dominated organization in corporate leadership. A lot of great talent as left to other companies willing to promote faster.
