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

    Pros

    Johnson and Johnson offers benefits to help their employees further their education. The benefits are exceptional. Great work and family balance.

    Cons

    If you do not have at least a bachelors degree, do not bother applying.

    Advice to Management

    I feel they should put as much consideration into life experience and job performance as they do with academic achievements, when looking for new talent. I worked for the company for 17 years and was actively working towards my degree when my department went through a reorganization. I had the qualifications to apply for other jobs within the company but could not be placed i because I had not yet completed my degree. I would have been able to complete my degree and perform well in a new position but I was not given the opportunity.

    Pros

    J&J is a great employee. They are people oriented and will support your career aspirations and at the same time will provide all the resources you need to perform your job.

    Cons

    Business decisions can put you out of the job very quickly. They take high risk on projects and if the return of investment is not immediate or enough, they will shutdown the business and invest the money somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Take important decisions quickly so projects are performed by their due date.
     To much bureaucracy for important decision can make projects fail their due dates.

    Pros

    Great company to work for with strong benefits. Very good opportunity for women and minorities to progress in their careers. Company does a lot of work with the community.

    Cons

    Dental plan needs to provide better coverage. The performance review process is long and cumbersome. Needs to be streamlined.

    Advice to Management

    Company states people are the strength and foundation of the company. If so, executive management needs to spend more time reaching out to all the employees.

    few millennials
    ageism
    hard to get promoted in title (not $)

    Advice to Management

    Do more to keep and attract all generations. It's primarily a baby boomer dominated organization in corporate leadership. A lot of great talent as left to other companies willing to promote faster.

    Pros

    company is very active in the community and you feel a sense of pride working here

    Cons

    layoffs sometimes and feels like promotions are based on 70% networking, 30% performance.

    Advice to Management

    let performance speak louder in regards to people you promote. It's not all about who you know.
