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

    Pros

    Personally, I am more interested in the programming aspect of the job but working at a large corporate office inherently got me exposed to the corporate life. You really need to network within the company to noticed and to make the experience even more useful.

    Cons

    My direct manager was bombarded with work as he is leading the team that I was in. That was the only thing that was a little unpleasant while being on the team. It was hard to communicate fully and ask questions that can help me navigate the next step in the company since I am an intern.


  2. "Great learning experience"

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work life balance, flexible schedule, multiple learning opportunities are available to co-ops/interns. People all throughout the company recognize that you're just starting out in the environment and are always willing to help you learn and find direction. They're willing to invest in you and want you to enjoy the experience JnJ has to offer.

    Cons

    Very few. Might not necessarily be a con but I've heard stories of how they don't want you to leave once you're in the company, again, that's only by being willing to invest in the young talent they attract.
    The program itself was kind of slow to start and seemed unstructured at times. This would obviously depend on your specific department but once the ball gets rolling it's easy to become acclimated to the environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. JnJ recognizes that young talent is what will continually breed innovation within a company and does a great job of attracting and developing them into company leaders.

    Pros

    Great company culture. Everyone in the company is willing to hear you out and network with you. Employees care about helping your development.

    Cons

    Some times work life balance can be really terrible but, it all depends on your team. It can also be very difficult to get a particular position you might really want.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees a chance to move around and maybe get involved with your team. Remember, happy employees equals good work.

  10. "A large, decent enough company that still holds some promise..."

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Although J&J has been going through a lot of changes over the past several years, if you are lucky enough to obtain a stable position with them, then this can prove beneficial to the employee. The environment is dynamic and full of some savvy and fun employees.

    Cons

    The company needs to have an increased number of actual employment opportunities (especially F/T) for which applicants can readily apply. The process has become much more convoluted and unnecessarily exhaustive to even try to get a resume presented to the "right" internal/external professionals. Qualified applicants also should not have to encounter so many seemingly illegitimate recruiting agencies. It was not always like this...
