    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The team at EES was very talented and resources were available to do your job. There were many opportunities for learning new things.

    Cons

    The culture is very 'passive aggressive' , some employees wore this moniker as a badge of honor. There was not back stabbing per se but people were out for themselves and were not always willing to help. The culture felt a bit like High School.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to produce world class products. Keep executive managers in place long enough to build a distinct culture.
