    Best Company I Have Ever Worked For

    Feb 6, 2022 - Line Service Technician in Los Angeles, CA

    Pros

    Great pay, Great benefits. You feel appreciated for your contributions. Great facility and equipment.

    Cons

    Super strict with their operating procedures. You have to scan a badge wherever you go so if you don't have access you have to go to the security office to get clearance. Security guards could be a pain.

    Not a good position for experienced hires. Not good for creative beauty lovers.

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Part of Johnson and Johnson. J&J has good values which they refer to as the "credo."

    Cons

    ABMs treated like pawns in most cases, esp with no marketing analysts. Very hierarchical and silo-d organization. Really archaic media and creative agency model and ideas. Innovation ideas and executional decisions are painfully slow given hierarchy and resource constraints despite being part of a ginormous company. Promotions and path to development is unclear. Growth is really relationship-based which is frustrating for those who prefer clear paths. If you are really interested and passionate in beauty, don't come here. Go somewhere where it's more scrappy and not owned by a giant pharma/medical company. Too much red tape here to make innovative launches and decisions.

    Well-meaning relic. Lots of good people bogged down by process and politics.

    Jun 10, 2019 - Branch Manager in Los Angeles, CA
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    First, it is In LA (enough said) and pays relatively well when compared to most skin care/beauty companies in the greater Los Angeles region. Because employees work under the J&J umbrella, the benefits are fantastic! Six months of paid maternity leave. Health-care coverage is amazing and the company still offers pensions. Company store offers stellar discounts on most Johnson & Johnson brands.

    Cons

    The problems here have built up over years and years of complacency that many are accountable for. I will start with the smaller issues and build. Unhealthy cafeteria options: With LA as arguably the health and wellness mecca of the country, it is hard to understand why such unhealthy options are served in the cafeteria. If it is deep fried in vegetable oil, it is available at the campus cafeteria. Limited advancement opportunity with extremely little diverse representation in higher positions. There is much opportunity for lateral moves, particularly if you are willing to re-locate to New Jersey HQ. Relic brand struggling to keep relevancy. Innovation has been swallowed whole by internal politics: Many projects to keep the brand relevant are often placed on hold or eliminated, due to frequent budget cutes. Toxicity is running rampant. Looming “sorority” culture filled with immature gossiping on frivolous topics. Some of the brightest minds, recruited from top schools around the country can often be found complaining about who is presenting what slides to executives, gossiping about their coworker’s outfits or a myriad of other frivolous topics. People are nice to each other’s faces, but never actually address issues. It’s very odd to me. Work-life balance was a challenge before. With recent layoffs, I’d imagine it will only get worse.
