    Former Employee - Quality Manager in Montreal, QC

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    It'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 ManagementAdvice

    Reduce 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.
