    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Corporate portion of the company is amazing. The operation companies within are great places to work in and healthy environments. Very supportive and seem to value and care about their employees.

    Cons

    The newer departments that are extentions of Johnson & Johnson look great from the outside, but are pretty bad within. There is no actual HR. Just a online portal and an external company to deal with “situations”. Although, nothing ever gets taken care of. I’ve seen numerous employees in tears because of their work place environment and managers. The turn around is insane. They over work employees until they break and either quit or “move on”. Managers speaking ill of their team and/or co-workers. Screaming at employees and even belittling them in front of others. It’s extremely shameful to see how toxic a small department is and that no one fixes it. The credo only holds value at corporate and to customers, but isn’t implemented consistently. There is no training anywhere and the managers don’t know how to be leaders. It’s only a matter of time until it all falls apart.

    Advice to Management

    Replace your toxic managers, listen to your employees, create a safe environment where they can speak up and not be punished for it. Address inappropriate workplace behavior. Treat employees with kindness and be honest with them. Build up the people you hire to help them reach their full potential.

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson as an intern

    Pros

    Loved the events they put on and volunteer opportunities!
    Some really great team members there.

    Cons

    JnJ stresses having a work-life balance, yet you were looked down upon if you didn't work 7:30-6pm. People get exhausted working there very quickly and saw many people leave during my time there because of that.

    Some upper management was very good at wasting people's time in meetings which was frustrating.
