    Pros

    -adequate pay
    -business can't loss with their corporate strategy of buying and selling continually
    -offices are lovely

    Cons

    -people are very fake
    -data is primarily managed as messy excel spreadsheets on a sharepoint
    -very boring work, it's all data cleansing

    Advice to Management

    Introduce a more collaborative work style in the office so employees are encouraged to come to work and actually do something productive. As a company in healthcare, there is a major risk of security and your systems are extremely vulnerable.

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time

    Pros

    Market leader in several categories

    Cons

    Risk management predominates every aspect of the organization: creates stifling bureaucracy, inefficiencies.

    Advice to Management

    Try dusting off that old Credo you're so proud of. It might come in handy.

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits that Johnson & Johnson offers are unbeatable. I have a ton of vacation, sick, and holiday time, as well as work and family time off.

    Cons

    Through the merger of Synthes and Johnson & Johnson, the entire culture of our department, as well as the company as a whole changed. It is much more a game of metrics now.

    Advice to Management

    The more open and honest you are with your people, the more they will both respect you and work hard for you. If employees do not feel valued, they are not as motivated to work.

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time

    Pros

    Good pay. Ability to work from home. Ability to learn a lot in a short amount of time (unfortunately that is because of the high workload).

    Cons

    I work in digital product development. J&J is a great CPG company with great brands. However, they have absolutely no idea what they are doing when it comes to technology. Work life balance is a joke, as you spend 90% of your days in meetings. Management is very inauthentic and are more like politicians, they pretend to care when others are looking, but its very obvious that they don't care about their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves and hire management that knows what they're doing.

    Pros

    Great benefits, mostly great people, discount on Johnson & Johnson products, flexible schedules such as work from home and summer fridays

    Cons

    Very political, high pressure environment, not much emphasis on development or teaching, management expects you to know everything with no help whatsoever. Brand new senior financial analysts are compared to seasoned veterans

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time teaching and developing, create more financial analyst roles and stagger the positions, you are demanding too much out of the new SFAs in certain areas of the organization

    Pros

    Some really smart people, supportive of working families, excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Since they tend to keep promoting based on longevity, fresh ideas are limited. There is definitely a J&J type of you do not fit in regardless of your contribution you are out at some point.

    Advice to Management

    Change it up every once in a while.
