    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson

    Pros

    I think that JnJ plays an important role in the development of new drugs and seems to do so in a fair and unbiased fashion. They work hard towards making our products available to people who would otherwise be unable to afford them. It is great to work for a company were it's size dictates that the working environment has to be comfortable and pleasant, the facilities modern and equipment is up to date. The company shows concern for the environment and ensures that all that can be done to make JnJ "greener" is done. It is good to work somewhere you get paid well for what you do.

    Cons

    With the size of the company it is easy to get lost as an individual - it is harder to be recognised when competing against so many others. With so many smaller companies making up JnJ as a whole it is difficult to work out what they all do and to ascertain how information could be shared better across the company as a whole. It can be frustrating seeing a change in the way everything is organised everytime someone new is promoted to a high position. It is very frustrating to see people promoted beyond their competence/experience level, where valid feedback from other employees against the promotion is apparently ignored, and particularly when it is at the expense of more qualified staff - this happening on a number of occasions. Where people are clearly not capable of performing their role, but nothing is done to either improve them or remove them from the company. The insistence of using business speak, when plain english would be easier to understand and a lot less pretentious.

    "A good place to work if your face fits."

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson

    Pros

    Job security. Once you are in, you are in for life! We are a diverse company which should mean we continue to be profitable even in economic downtimes. The social side is good, people very friendly with a good atmosphere. This comes from the staff rather than the managers.

    Cons

    Crazy promotions! Some people are promoted far beyond their abilities while others are held back. There are too many managers - some are excellent, some are very weak. We rely heavily on contactors. The hours can be long, and rewards are few. Company structure is extremely complicated. Budget for training is small.
