    Pros

    Strong company with rich history; Great leadership at top; Limited leadership in middle at corporate

    Cons

    Work life balance terrible; Too many VPs/Overhead especially at Corporate drives culture of isolation and protecting empires versus doing what is right for the patient according to the Credo and the shareholder

    Advice to Management

    Need analysis of VP structure; should recommend different hurdles for becoming VP including posting of entry level VPs to drive better vetting versus favoritism; overall need less VPs to create shareholder value

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great job opportunities to grow & move across the internal family of companies. Good training. Incredible focus on development & career growth. Health benefits are very good, pay was competitive. People are generally great and seem to care about their jobs. It was hard for me to leave.

    Cons

    slow decision making, bureaucratic, and often very internally focused. Old systems that don't talk to one another. Locations are often in the remote suburbs.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage your teams to focus externally and spend less time on power point decks for internal meetings.
