    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 worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time

    Pros

    Great work environment for all levels.

    Cons

    Not enough permanent positions available. J&J prefers to hire contractors.

    Advice to Management

    J&J hires too many contractors. Hire more permanent employees at all levels instead of only senior management. Productivity/ efficiency would be increased due to permanent employees having a larger stake in the company vs contractors.

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The rotational opportunities - the experience to develop a diverse skill set across business segments. The level of expertise of the people in the finance organization is top notch. The focus on people management helps managers and employees benefit from each other's skills.

    Cons

    The political environment- you need to know the right people to advance in the organization. Although J&J is diverse in the look of people, you all need to think a like.

    Advice to Management

    Judge employees on their actual accomplishments, vs who they know. Also, the work load for most of the finance organization is beyond what is reasonable.

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time

    Pros

    A very large, global corporation with many opportunities for growth and advancement.

    Cons

    Like with other major corporations, there is a constant churn of downsizing and outsourcing projects that can often eliminate positions.

    Advice to Management

    There is no longer any loyalty to the long term employee, which is something that attracted to me J&J in the first place, 30 plus years ago. I believe this is something that management needs to consider working on in the future, if they want to attract and retain long term, career minded employees.
