    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson Vision Care full-time

    Pros

    Part of the larger Johnson & Johnson company with access to many excellent benefits such as onsite gym, ability to buy discounted J&J consumer products at the staff shop and the ability to transfer to other divisions within the company

    Cons

    Several years of significant out of stock issues on key brands leading opticians to increasingly put contact lens wearers into competitor brands. Not been helped by lack of significant product innovation by JJVC, and competitors closing the quality gap with a range of new launches/line extensions.

    Advice to Management

    Too few people are doing too much at head office. Invest in more full time roles rather than part-time band-aids.

      Negative Outlook
      No Opinion of CEO

      I worked at Johnson & Johnson Vision Care full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Great pay and benefits Still a lot of smart people there scrambling to fill a pipeline Flexible hours Not demanding more than 40 hrs/week

      Cons

      Seeking-ship feeling creates a negative culture Silo'ed groups need basic cross-pollination to encourage unity Small cog feeling in such a massive company Procedural handcuffs stifle agile innovation

      Advice to Management

      You've created barriers between the information disseminated among management and individual contributors. Make a SINGLE schedule and hold everyone to it. Distribute the specific milestones, and expectations mapped to a work breakdown structure. Once the project management has transparency everyone will have confidence in meeting the deadline.
