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

      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.
