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

    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.

    Pros

    - Ethical company
    - Upper leadership is solid

    Cons

    - They don't value employees contributions and look externally for talent
    - Much office politics - not what you know but who knows and likes you
    - Sales leadership is not progessive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Look at your internal talent. You may have people with transferable skills who are innovative and can be placed in other positions prior to looking externally.
