    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Multi-National Company
    Opportunities to explore within the many business units at J&J
    Lots of added extras from J&J like a yearly gym allowance, 3 days of annual leave given to you in between Christmas & New Year

    Cons

    Multi-National Company.
    Too many protocols in order to perform your work effectively, too many levels of management/team, in order to get action after initiating any idea.
    Generally the eastern states are spoilt with budgets, KOL visitors, being recognised.
    Adelaide & Perth are continuously left at the bottom of the list for anything.
    Not a lot of opportunities to be promoted in the smaller states.
    Not accommodating to Women returning to work after having their baby. During the 8 years that I was there, I continuously witnessed women being pressured to come back full-time and if they managed to come back part-time initially, within the first 6 months or so they were made to re-apply for their position, or restructure the titles of the sales teams and advise the representatives that the new role would be full time so they would have to accept it as full time role only.

    Advice to Management

    It doesn't matter how hard or easy anything is to be said to another human... honesty is the best policy.

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Super matching and gym on sight

    Cons

    Leadership and Politics
    Unfortunately it made some serious errors in senior management appointments that led to a lot of the key talent leaving over the past 3 years that turned around that business originally. I've never seen such bad appointments in my career, no engagement or support for staff, toxic culture and lack of trust. Some of those leaders have just left or about too, but it needs more leadership if it wants any chance of attracting the talent it now desperately needs.

    Advice to Management

    Understand what it is to have TRUE leaders not managers in your business.

    Pros

    Great products to sell and great Credo and I had many good year with them.

    Cons

    Absolutely abysmal mid-management when I left. I would say ageist which is totally against their credo. Thankfully those people have now left so hopefully it is back to its potential good employer

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your ideals and Credo are followed down the management line. I found it was lost at mid management
