    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Incredible people, opportunity to learn and develop in a tier one organization, phenomenal training, great work-life balance

    Cons

    significant cost cutting led to restructuring and limited spending, taking away fun and just about last min requests/new processes weekly/constant deadlines, management was far superior in past, will be given new processes only to have them changed in a couple weeks, letting go of great people to cut costs

    Advice to Management

    compensate your current employees appropriately or else you might not retain them

    Current Employee - Project Manager in North Toronto, ON

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson for more than a year

    Pros

    Very Mature culture. People don't interfere with your work. The general intelligence levels of the employees are high and conversation with regard to work and current affairs can be very engaging.

    Cons

    At times, the non intrusive culture also prevents best practice sharing from happening. Contractors may find the initial few days a little difficult and will have scourge for process knowledge that will get them going.

    Advice to Management

    Engage more with people. Share the company vision and the strategy to achieve results on an ongoing quarterly basis. Retain more full time employees.

    Current Employee - Assistant Brand Manager in Markham, ON

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You are given a lot of responsibility from day 1 and plenty of opportunity to excel. Your development is a priority (for most managers). Plenty of high profile brands to get valuable experience on. A phenomenal launching pad for your career. Also nice to be able to work from home when you have no meetings.

    Cons

    The job can be demanding and stressful, there are a lot of asks from managers, directors and cross-functional partners. It is often hard to focus on business-driving initiatives when you are constantly explaining your call/latest estimate, forecasting, building decks etc... It is also a pain that the office is in Markham, unless you live there of course.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to prioritize talent development. Make greater efforts to reduce complexity of the brand management roles enabling more flexible time to commit to business-driving initiatives.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great starting salary for Assistant Brand Managers, higher than industry average Good perks, company discounts, on site gym, good vacation days

    Cons

    Management will quickly (within the first month) make a decision if you are a 'JnJer' or not, and if you are deemed not, then sorry but no matter what you do you will not be recognized and be given more and more difficult and unreasonable projects to that you purposely under-perform. Work life balance did not exist, was expected to work 12+hr days and was told off if you didnt answer emails on weekends. You had to...
