    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flex work practices, work from home
    Friendly and helpful teams and good collaboration with most functions across the UK business

    Cons

    Whilst change is inevitable in a large FMCG, the new UK customer leadership team is putting undue pressure on a good team that produced great financial results in 2016. Adding in another layer of management puts a huge barrier for teams to openly discuss the challenges they have.

    Advice to Management

    New senior leadership is at high risk of damaging the good will and culture of a successful customer team

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

    Pros

    Great MNC. Credo shapes employees thinking structure. Cash rich company. Focus on employee welfare. Lots of insightful sharing on health and wellness stories and knowledge. Helpful people even though not everyone.

    Cons

    Very low team morale in consumer sector due to poor management team. Big plan with poor execution. Each team tends to push away their responsibilities and pin pointing to each others. Very low team work. High turnover at management level with replacement hired externally resulting in low credo value in management practice.

    Advice to Management

    The organization is lean. Please listen to employees who are one level below to understand how's middle management behavior has affected the team morale.

    Pros

    Change is always welcome and adds up as a stimulus in the team and all levels of leadership in the company-gives us that passion to explore the unknown and aspiration to excel in the changing environment.

    Cons

    Clear company vision not conveyed to the customers and leads to chaos and further more when the changes are too many and too abrupt.

    Advice to Management

    Vision to be customer centric in all strategies as opposed to internal focus

    Pros

    At first this was a great company to work for. Good benefits

    Pros

    There are great facilities including an in-house gym with an excellent participation program. Lot of parking. The office is large and spacious.

    Cons

    While people were highly skilled and driven, people were encouraged to work in silo so there was little interest in collaboration across functions. The company's incentive system also encourage people to focus on the short term career gains. There is only a clear career pathway if you are in the sales and market role.
