    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Been there for about 4 years.
    - JNJ cares about its employees
    - Good work/life balance
    - Competitive salaries
    - Trying to move work internally and away from vendors ... with little success so far
    - Huge potential in the BioTech industries if management does it correctly

    Cons

    Disclaimer: JnJ is huge and this review may reflect only on a section of the business.

    - You do not code much. You end up coordinating between vendors, business and other partners ... way too many cooks in one project and mot Tech decision are actually made by Vendors. They drive.

    - A culture of BS in order to LOOK valuable rather than actually being valuable. When a company is that big, no one is actually valuable so the amount of BS is extreme. Tons of BS self-congratulatory talks on project mostly delivered by vendors.

    - Office locations do not attract tech talent that aspiring engineers would like to work with. Their offices are in NJ, where the tech sector is not like the one in San Fran or NY.

    Advice to Management

    - Vendors should be hired to help and not drive all aspects of projects.
    - Embed internal employees in vendor teams.
    - Open offices in tech hub cities
    - Focus on building smaller teams.

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time

    Pros

    Resources are readily available for talent growth/development especially what is considered the highest potential candidates. A lot of opportunities for cross-functional and even cross-sector (Pharmaceuticals, Consumer Health, Medical Device, etc) experience. Truly a global company with exciting opportunities for US employees to work abroad in a number of assignments.

    Cons

    NJ-based company so many of the offerings are on the east coast (training).


  10. "analyst"

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time

    Pros

    good benefits and work/life balance depending on your manager

    Cons

    politics politics politics, also expect to be told youre ready for promotion but no one actually promotes you because HR overcomplicates it

    Advice to Management

    get rid of the top-heavy org and reward those who do the work
