    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time

    Pros

    Fast paced, energetic, encouraged to work overtime

    Cons

    Company has decided that admins hired from now on will remain temps with a contract of 2 years, then off 6 months, then you can be hired again for another 2 years. Mgmt has decided new admin will not have benefits in order to save money.

    Advice to Management

    Value your Admins more than you do - they are the people who run your Company and to some extent, your life. Would you know what to do or who to call if you no longer had an Admin? Yeah, I didn't think so,

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company with focus on professional development, good benefits and many career opportunities across the medical device, pharma and consumer sectors to grow. Excellent diversity & women's leadership programs.

    Cons

    Challenging work family balance as the pace in terms of workload was intense. High pressure to meet quarter to quarter growth targets and deliverables with shrinking resources requiring having to do more with less over time. Need more focus on the new culture now that Medical device group has merged.

    Advice to Management

    Refocus on the Credo and doing the right thing for the customers and employee and profits & margins will follow. Invest in R&D and partnerships across the sector to expand relevance in being a strategic supplier of choice with key IDN's.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, great work life balance, amazing mentors and coworkers. Easy to develop cross functional relationships. Self development highly encouraged.

    Cons

    Little room for upward mobility in many departments. Moving out of department nearly impossible. Directors stay in positions long term, discouraging employee movement from the fold.

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

    Pros

    Nice benefits and friendly smart people. Opportunities to work closely with customers and see your products in action.

    Cons

    Heavily bureaucratic with very slow decision making along with regular changes in organizational structure. Style is sometimes valued over substance, so the best ideas aren't always implemented. Most conferences required weekend travel.

    Advice to Management

    Cross functional resources often times stretched too thin, resulting in slow progress. Fewer meetings!

    Pros

    Excellent co-workers; great compensation; good management; high ethics ; can usually work independently

    Cons

    Constant battle for resources; need to justify your existence and value or risk being laid off; annual layoffs

    Advice to Management

    No major issues with management. Major differences in how money is spent within three business sectors. Unfair at times need more consistency on how we spend our money
