    Pros

    This is my first job out of college. I have been with jnj already for 12 years. Very difficult to leave. Great benefits, especially pension plan. With my calculations, with my salary and 25 years of work in the company I will have about 55k of annual pension, about 2 million in 401k. You can leave the company whenever and when the time comes, you can collect pension plan money. But the true money comes after at least 25 years of work with a salary of at least 90k a year. Young people are stupid for leaving jnj quickly, they do not think in a long run

    Cons

    Takes long time to advance

    Advice to Management

    Keep cubicles

    Pros

    Very good systematic setup.
    Good friendly environment. except a lady name "Julia".
    A place to learn people skills and experiences.

    Cons

    Mid-management misconduct and lied to employees.

    Not a good place to stay.
    Parking a mile away for actual work area.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management needs to work undercover to see what the middle management is doing. A lot of waste of time and money.

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits that Johnson & Johnson offers are unbeatable. I have a ton of vacation, sick, and holiday time, as well as work and family time off.

    Cons

    Through the merger of Synthes and Johnson & Johnson, the entire culture of our department, as well as the company as a whole changed. It is much more a game of metrics now.

    Advice to Management

    The more open and honest you are with your people, the more they will both respect you and work hard for you. If employees do not feel valued, they are not as motivated to work.

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time

    Pros

    Good pay. Ability to work from home. Ability to learn a lot in a short amount of time (unfortunately that is because of the high workload).

    Cons

    I work in digital product development. J&J is a great CPG company with great brands. However, they have absolutely no idea what they are doing when it comes to technology. Work life balance is a joke, as you spend 90% of your days in meetings. Management is very inauthentic and are more like politicians, they pretend to care when others are looking, but its very obvious that they don't care about their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves and hire management that knows what they're doing.

    Pros

    Great benefits, mostly great people, discount on Johnson & Johnson products, flexible schedules such as work from home and summer fridays

    Cons

    Very political, high pressure environment, not much emphasis on development or teaching, management expects you to know everything with no help whatsoever. Brand new senior financial analysts are compared to seasoned veterans

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time teaching and developing, create more financial analyst roles and stagger the positions, you are demanding too much out of the new SFAs in certain areas of the organization
