    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Company culture is very open and welcoming. There are a lot of great people managers and leaders. JNJ has internal frameworks for Marketing Excellence (Mx) and Market Access Excellence (MAx)...together now called Value Excellence (Vx), which keeps everyone speaking the same language, no matter what country or office you're working in...it's the same.

    Cons

    Unfairness or inequality in career progression and professional development: Some people are forced to climb a well-defined career ladder, rung by rung, while others seemingly get to jump around after 7 months. Glass ceilings exist based on discussions that you're not a part of... Sometimes they hire highly-experienced professionals from stable jobs to get them to bring new expertise into the company, only... to let them go after 18 months when the new learning program they made has been rolled out and can be sustained with current employees... It's easier to apply for an internal job if your not a JNJ employee...many times I was held back from putting my name in the hat for some job openings that I was fully qualified to do Sometimes JNJ "talks the talk", but don't "walk the walk": Example: JNJ openly says we are pursuing flexible work schedules, or additional Personal Days when they are attracting new talent, but when push comes to shove they say "it's up to your manager". Because my manager didn't want anybody working from home, ever, my team never got to unless we were sick. Example: JNJ actively hires diverse talent from different education backgrounds for the overall , but these once in the company enon-traditional hires are not given the same opportunities as those who have an MBA

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. JNJ foc uses a lot on improving the Customer Experience, but sometimes is so careless or inconsistent with their own "Employee Experiences"
