    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Interesting and challenging work. R & D associates are top notch. Benefits are one of the best in this industry.

    Cons

    Execution seems more important than developing true science. Procedures are so deep that they are a burden to project teams. Too many chiefs and not enough Indians.

    Advice to Management

    Drive openness. Challenge upper management. Fail fast versus failure is not an option.
