    I worked at McNeil Consumer Healthcare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    J&J benefits are decent. Gained valuable Consent Decree experience. Salary is decent. On-site store is nice to buy cheap McNeil products.

    Cons

    A lot of long-term J&J employees (McNeil or other divisions who move to McNeil) are lazy and know their jobs are safe as long as they don't do anything egregious. Cronyism and cliques, even (especially?) with management. Workload can be incredibly heavy for one but light for another, ruining work life balance. Lessons from CD seem like they haven't really been learned. Bonus wasn't good at all.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of dead weight - don't retain people just because they've been with J&J for many years. Practice what you preach in terms of quality.

    I have been working at McNeil Consumer Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, many hard working professionals.

    Cons

    Upper Mgmt in Quality unit, especially in QC at FW Site operates as a clique. In 2015 Managerial positions have been re-filled with unprofessional, non-qualified in leadership friends/family members brought in by their sponsors and the working environment has been worse than ever. All accomplishments of employees and contractors since 2013 have been downgraded and criticized. Even though the FW site successfully passed all inspections thanks to hard work and expertise of all these people, working tirelessly long hours, weekends, holidays.
    During increased workload, resources have been cut with no strategy or plan of action to recover. It seems like they wants the labs to fail.
    “Dead wood “ personnel issues have not been addressed while highly productive, skilled, professional employees are working for those who slack or left with no recognition, no clear vision for their professional growth and no job security, while exposed to favoritism, lack of leadership and strategy.
    J&J Credo values are not only followed but have broken on regular basis. Employees have no one to go for advice or complaint, since the clique operate within a pillar from low Mgmt up .
    Anyone considering joining McNeil-run! You better research other divisions of J&J family.

    Advice to Management

    Change Upper Management for competent, qualified and caring Leaders.. Listen to the voice of common employee and practice what you preach.

    Pros

    Great people to work with below management. Hard working people. Great Benefits.

    Cons

    Management is constantly changing. The new management is there long enough to relies the problems and then is moved on to a new position. Very stressful situation. Management is good at blaming the people below for their mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the workers.

    Some good people. Committed to the community and raises a lot of money for several charities.

    No leadership. No retention of talent. Organizational silos prevent any real collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    Either address the problems or get out of the way. Too much micro management and no empowerment.
