    I have been working at Janssen as an intern (less than an 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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doctors belongs to one of this categories :
    1.Academic , they need to be convince regarding quality of medicine
    2.personal , they like to talk about personal issue ,weather , any thing but medicine
    3.University lecturer ,they think they know better than u , u should keep giving them compliment with their knowledge
    4.gift oriented doctors , they only looking for gift and congress trip abroad
    medical reps should analysis doctors and behave accordingly for the best result

    I worked at Janssen

    Pros

    Access to Johnson and Johnson products at very low cost; when company was doing well, better opportunities for advancement, recent cutbacks have kept people in limbo selling lots of products.

    Cons

    Management clearly has its favourites with a small group of people and unqualified MBAs moving from position to position without proving themselves along the way. Some good people in management, too, but overall lacking vision and knowing how to treat employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to employees, compare yourself to other companies and their selling styles. It's time to get back to basics because things were running more smoothly 7 years ago.

    Former Employee - Director/Senior Manager in Titusville, NJ (US)

    I worked at Janssen full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work can be intellectually stimulating, compensation is solid, right now the company is on an upswing, J&J's always good on your resume. If you're a solid performer that fits the culture, you'll be satisfied here (depending on your function/operating company, and your manager)

    Cons

    Much depends on your manager/management. Two people can do the same job, but will have totally different takeaways depending on which Janssen company, and their manager. Like any other big company (and perhaps small ones too), it's all about "the quarter" at J&J. There is the perception that they move older employees out of the organization (which has given rise to the saying, "don't go gray at J&J").

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice to give right now.

    I have been working at Janssen as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great company culture, laid back atmosphere. You are surrounded by a lot of bright individuals who are willing to assist you if need be. Develop your excel skills (especially pivot tables and v lookup) and also learn how to utilize SAP.

    Cons

    After getting in the swing of it, work becomes very routine and monotonous. Office may tend to empty out, as a lot of employees work remotely.

    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

    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.
