    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Good working staff. Nice facilities including on-site gym and lunchtime workout classes.

    Cons

    Terrible management. At best there is an under current of passive aggressive behavior. At worst it is threatening micromanages. I would go home in tears on many occasions.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage the team in a constructive positive manner. Remove the bad management and start fresh.

    Passionate people and leadership. Strong values and sense of accomplishment.

    Minimum to no Work life balance

    Focus on refreshing leadership styles. Old leadership style in some key positions which does not foster teamwork

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I always had fun projects to work on that provided our customers with the tools they needed. I also liked the following: Minimal travel required, Excellent benefits, and Good work life balance. The politics were not a problem in my department. The Managers treated people with respect from what I witnessed.

    Cons

    Management chose to lay IT professionals outside of NJ. To many levels of Management for decision making. At times, it was a challenge working with off shore associates due to the language barriers.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to realize the talent outside of NJ that helped get J&J to where they are today. Hiring the wrong CIO (LC) did a lot of lasting damage to the entire IT organization.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, work that impacts patient healthcare, and if you believe in building strong relationships with your business partners you'll do well as many HRBP's here prefer to partner from a phone/office vs. getting out with their clients.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, slow, and incredibly unproductive political atmosphere. Also constant restructuring for the sake of short term bottom line management. I honestly have lost faith in the Credo we seem to hold to such high standards. Very inconsistent treatment of employees across Op Co's.

    Advice to Management

    Try bottom up leadership and get an understanding of what's really happening with the employees that serve our customers. Actually allow innovative, risk taking employees to thrive vs stifle their enthusiasm.

    Pros

    Cross company opportunties, Strong recognizable brands, Support system, Networking

    Cons

    It's no longer the J&J that it used to be...small company feel, big company impact. Senior management has made the decision to consolidate many of the companies which has eliminated the small company culture and has driven to a more "corporate" feel.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget to support your people and continue to develop them.
