    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
