    I worked at Johnson & Johnson (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Cordial culture. The Credo permeates the organization globally. High-quality, high-integrity colleagues to learn from. Lots of room for career growth (in most areas, but not all). Nice work environment with great office resources. Very good benefits.

    Cons

    A lot of what made this company different has gone away. What was a very special company is now more just like every other company. The company is behind-the-times on flexible and remote work arrangements. Management is very numbers-focused; very concerned (but not obsessed) with meeting quarterly EPS, etc. Direction from above is often "do more with less," which makes for an increasingly stressful and frustrating work-life balance at a company that used to pride itself on being a "family company." Office politics can get in the way of getting thing done, and egos get exponentially larger as you go up through the executive ranks. Too many resources are dedicated to the image of the CEO, who is overly concerned about his own personal image. Whatever he wants, he gets, regardless of budgets. Credo indoctrination leads to a "we can do no wrong," holier than thou attitude toward competitors, regulators, and critics.

    Advice to Management

    Push the employees further up and the stock-holders further down in terms of groups to keep happy. Think about what makes/made the company a special place to work and protect that. Get serious about diversity in the upper ranks. Dial back on the PR resources dedicated to making the CEO look like a super-hero. It's gotten nauseating.

    Pros

    Culture is Credo-based, and it shows. My colleagues are generally great people to work with after experiencing several different areas of the company. JNJ encourages its' employees to explore other areas of the company, while also promoting internal growth. JNJ also has amazing benefits.

    Cons

    Most people live by the Credo, but not all. Occasionally, there are some colleagues that that ulterior motives that can potentially be damaging.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure your management-level employees are building the professionals that directly report to them in a positive manner.

    Pros

    You'll never be expected or even asked to do anything unethical by JNJ. It's truly a place where you're better off losing the business than doing something that might get the company on the front page of the newspaper for the wrong reasons.

    Cons

    JNJ is a a very large company where the wheels of innovation turn very slowly. So if you are driven to lead change for the better you may find the pace frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you all do so well.

    Pros

    Awesome Benefits, good people, fairly stable

    Cons

    Some management have been moved up by inertia, rather than value. Upper management moves a lot from one sister company to other.
