Might be good again

Sales Representative (Former Employee)
Toronto, ON

I worked at Janssen

ProsAccess 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.

ConsManagement 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 Senior ManagementStart 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Excellent research facilities, friendly co-workers, ideal work environment.

Graduate Research Co-op (Former Employee)
Radnor, PA (US)

I worked at Janssen as an intern for less than a year

ProsBiologics are contributing to a larger portion of Johnson & Johnson's revenue. There is a lot of emphasis on expanding Janssen Pharmaceuticals to help sustain and improve the company's share in the biologics space, especially after the success of Remicade and Stellara.

ConsDon't have many entry-level positions available.

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow new and fresh talent to get in more easily.

Janssen is a collaborative environment that appreciates innovative ideas.

District Sales Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at Janssen full-time for more than 10 years

ProsExperienced management and a small company feel. Janssen respects those that take informed risks. Development of associates at all levels is a cornerstone of the company's success.

ConsAs with any pharmaceutical company at this point in time there is a high degree of uncertainty but if you thrive in ambiguity, you'll do just fine!

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to be transparent in every way possible as it builds associate trust and respect.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
