    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Large multinational company and there's a wide range of roles in all disciplines. Good compensation packages when joining and on promotions. Can develop your career to whatever you want. A lot of internal opportunities. Company does care about staff and plenty of iniatives and benefits. The Credo, whilst the implementation is always reliant on the people you work around, it's a great statement and the vast... majority act and make decisions in line with it.

    Cons

    Such a vast enterprise it's easy to get lost. People tend to work in certain functions and move around often within the business. It can be difficult to get things done or find the right person. Having an internal network is essential. Whilst there's plenty of finance roles, they aren't always the most stimulating of roles in some departments. Sometimes feel as if you're tech support as a lot of processes are... standardised, automated or outsourced and you're there to solve the problems when they arise. Quite a lot of downtime outside busy periods but heavy workloads when it's busy. Whilst I enjoy my job and wouldn't change any time soon, it's nice to feel energetic about your role. Although salaries are generally good, annual increases aren't much more than inflationary even if you fully meet/exceed your objectives. This is despite rises being described as merit increases. IT equipment really isn't as good as it should be. Laptops are really basic, slow and small. Very difficult to work on unless connected to wired internet and docked to a monitor. This makes it hard to work outside of the office.

    Advice to Management

    More influence on salary from your performance. Invest in better IT equipment. Promote flexible working for people without young families.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good benefits such as pension and bonus.

    Cons

    Progression is not possible within the company. They have a policy of only hiring people of the same grade so it is not possible currently to get promoted to the next level. If no apply of the same grade they look externally.

    Advice to Management

    Try to retain talent by promoting people to the next grade up instead of losing them to the competition. Your current policy is very short sighted.
