    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.

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Hands down one of the best places I've worked at. I thought about find other jobs before taking this job, but now I do not want to leave.

    Cons

    You have to be a self motivated thinker. I've seen individuals who come here and are brilliant but do not do things without it being directly told. You have to think beyond the box.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing you

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The rotational opportunities - the experience to develop a diverse skill set across business segments. The level of expertise of the people in the finance organization is top notch. The focus on people management helps managers and employees benefit from each other's skills.

    Cons

    The political environment- you need to know the right people to advance in the organization. Although J&J is diverse in the look of people, you all need to think a like.

    Advice to Management

    Judge employees on their actual accomplishments, vs who they know. Also, the work load for most of the finance organization is beyond what is reasonable.
