    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 full-time

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, benefits, and overall corporate culture. Overall a very collaborative environment as well. Employee career development is also top-notch.

    Cons

    Communication from upper management is sometimes slow and drawn out. Promotion and advancement is also highly dependent on manager and many things take a while to get approval.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate results and objectives in a more timely manner and if more time is needed, let lower management know.

    Pros

    Great Place to Work, Benefits, Opportunities

    Cons

    Too much political and elitist environment, some senior leadership care more of the optics than getting the job done correctly and ethically. IT system need to be more into the current innovation environment. Your work will be 80% politics, 20% knowing/what type of manager you will get.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk with the CREDO

    Pros

    Development Programs
    J&J Credo
    Work Life Balance
    Health and Wellness focus on employees

    Cons

    Senior Leadership hyper-focussed on diversity ... some very good people have left, and others seem under qualified for the positoins they've been promoted to.
    Upward and lateral opportunities often result in loss of long-term-incentives

    Advice to Management

    Protect top performers who take on new development roles by guaranteeing long-term incentives for their first one to two years in the new role.
