    I have been working at Janssen as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Awesome work-life balance, very positive learning environment. The people I did work closely with were outstanding people and very smart. I learned so much during my placement and would highly recommend it. It's a very successful company and difficult to get in, so if you do get in you should take advantage.

    Cons

    My intern experience was poorer than most at the company. I was close with a lot of interns and they were given adequate responsibility and included in many meetings and activities. I felt like an outsider most of my time there, with my hiring manager being quite poor at following our progress or even delegating us work. A lot of time was spent trying to figure out what to do with ourselves.

    Pros

    Nice environment and easy going people.

    Cons

    Somewhat racist towards African American males. If you are a contractor, unless you are White it is difficult to transition to permanent employee

    Pros

    Being part of a big company is nice.

    Cons

    Favoritism is rampant. Ageism looms ahead for many in their 30s.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be realistic setting goals.

    I have been working at Janssen full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay! Johnson and Johnson is a great company to be connected with for other opportunities. Promotions are available for those who want to move up in the company.

    Cons

    There seems to be a new sense of extreme competitiveness in Johnson and Johnson. Although this is great for the Janssen's bottom dollar, the culture has changed, and solid reps are leaving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A renewed sense of respect for people's family/work life and workload analysis per representative could help. Constant lay-offs and changing workload/counterparts can become mentally exhausting.

    I have been working at Janssen full-time

    Pros

    Great mobility of career - not only in pharma but in other J&J sectors like device and consumer, credo driven culture, people to people business, good work-life balance including summer fridays and general cultural respect for family time.

    Cons

    NJ/PA centric location, management does have in-club which is motivating for great performers but can be less motivating for folks on the other side.

    I worked at Janssen as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Janssen as a great place to start my career in industry. I was treated as an equal, given real responsibilities and projects, and respected as an individual. I worked in R&D and was able to present in group meetings, attend conferences, and truly build my skills.

    Cons

    As in all companies, there seemed to be dissent among non-management workers about the decisions of upper management. Office politics were very real, and managers certainly had favorites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be restricted by preconceived notions or office rumors.
