It was a good experience and a good school to work their.

Quality Manager (Former Employee)
Montreal, QC

I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThey have a written credo.
They are diversified (pharma, medical device, consumer).
They pay well their people.
They are financially healthy.

ConsIt's a really political companie.
Complex organisation with too many level of management which slow down the decision process.
They cut to much in HR area.
Some sites are under a FDA consent decree.
"People first, profit will follow" is less apply since the last 5 years.

Advice to Senior ManagementReduce complexity at all level (apply "lean concept" for many of their business processes)
Focus more on real innovation (not a variation of color and format of exisiting products)
Reduce total number of management level to 8 or less
Pay more attention to the selection of their managers (senior director and above) to make sure they are people oriented, not only business oriented.
