    I worked at Johnson & Johnson as a contractor (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Direct employee benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    Too many contractors and temps, so there are few opportunities for ladder-climbing, and politics are now valued more than ability.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your lower-level employees, including contractors and temps, as human beings. Remember, they do the bulk of the work and should have a voice, especially since you risk losing too much knowledge as they rotate out.

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

    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 have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, 401K match, vacation, work and family, etc. Generally stable company. They will usually not backfill a position rather than lay employees off.

    Cons

    Often made to feel guilty for using time (across multiple roles). Also, employees treated differently bases on "favorites". For example, work from home varies across employees of the same experience/pay grade. Special allowances made for the "favorites" and denied for others (many employees allowed to move away and work remote while others are denied to work 3 days from home with a tough commute). Generally, it all depends on if you have good management. I've seen lots of departments fall to poor leadership, because executive senior leadership is too removed from the day to day. They're only concerned with the bottom line, but not the way we got there. Not very credo focused, as they claim.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people on the bottom. They know more about the day to day business. Treat them well and they will stick around longer. I've seen a lot of good analyst leave the company due to petty complaints ignored by management.

    Pros

    Flexible and understanding employers. I like the opportunity to work from home. And they are very family oriented so that's great.

    Cons

    I will like to gain more training and see a little more order within the groups. Different groups follow different processes.

    Advice to Management

    None at the moment.

    Pros

    Great people and great guidance. I learned more at this company than I have at my previous three co-op experiences.

    Cons

    A lot of working on your own and connecting with the right people. If you are self driven and can think on your feet, this job is right for you.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you have touchpoints with your co-ops at least two times a week, but otherwise nothing.

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is an incredible breadth of products and opportunities both internationally and domestically. The compensation is pretty good. Culture is OK.

    Cons

    There are way too many meetings and overall I found the company to be much less efficient than other places I have worked. I do not have an intention to return.

    Advice to Management

    Management should do a much better job about being more efficient and streamlining meetings/processes to have a more productive workplace.

    Pros

    Great experience for any college student looking to explore the world of brand management at a major CPG. Projects are actually implemented and make an impact on the brand you are working on. Managers are engaged and invested in your career and education. Great job for a Junior in college. Co-ops can lead to full-time positions in the MLDP.

    Cons

    Skillman, NJ is in the middle of nowhere, so the biggest con for me and many others was the commute.
