    I worked at Janssen full-time

    Pros

    I worked at Janssen full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Ethical company. Flexible working for some roles; active training and development department. Good products. Janssen is part of J&J. a very large organisation, so there are opportunities for cross- movement between different parts of Janssen and other J&J companies.

    Cons

    Too process-driven, much too much emphasis on KPIs; slow to adapt to changing working environment. Too many reporting spreadsheets.
