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

    Pros

    Minus the slew of baby powder/ovarian cancer lawsuits, the company has an impressive, reputable product portfolio.

    Wonderful benefits.

    Solid Brand on the Resume.

    Competitive pay.

    Cons

    Due to the main office locations, you will be forced to live in the boonies or spend ~3-4 hours of each day commuting.

    The company struggles to attract and retain millennials because it is truly the epitome of "old school" corporate America. The dress code is very strict, and the organization is anything but flat. The leadership expects to be fawned over and admired for their intelligence and vision; meanwhile, they are baffled by technological pursuits as basic as saving a word document in PDF form.

    The company is trying desperately to re-brand itself as a "healthcare tech" company, but is about as similar to Google or Amazon as New Brunswick is to Silicon Valley.

    The culture, and your success, is completely dependent on your ability to suck-up to anyone and everyone above you. There is almost no value awarded for your actual work. 95% politics, 5% proven results.

    If you are looking for a progressive, inclusive company- look elsewhere. J&J is one of the most classic examples of Office Space-like companies in the Fortune 500.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the self-serving, incompetent directors and business heads. Reward leaders who actually develop their people.

    Pros

    Reputable company with good people. Good pay and benefits

    Cons

    _ performance is not a factor in promotions; must network with the right people
    _ difficult to move around. Company standards are not the same for everyone
    _ company preaches diversity but consistently fails at hiring and promoting people of color
    - CREDO has become a joke
    _ managers are more concerned with their careers to develop their employees
    _ leadership needs training on what a true leader is; people equate business wins as leadership

    Advice to Management

    Give the right people a chance or you'll lose quality people to competitors

    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.

    Pros

    Most of the people are very nice and they have great work flexibility regarding working from other locations.
