Great brands, corporate history and legacy. Excellent breadth of projects and company scale allows for career progression.
Significant lack of resources and employees consistently over worked and underpaid. Management are very out of touch with the staff, and in denial when it comes to addressing issues. As blatant as the issues are, they are only focused on the sales targets and have little regard for the person working behind the desk to deliver on projects.
Advice to Management
Step one is always to acknowledge the issue. This would go a long way, and showing that your listening to staff would assist greatly, as currently it feels like things are being done to tick a box for smoke and mirrors to look like they're doing something, but in reality they choose to ignore the results of surveys, staff feedback sessions and instead continue to use a stick method. No wonder there have been so many departures in the last 12 months.

J&J is the sort of organisation that there will always be lot of challenges for you. You will certainly be provided with lots of opportunity to stretch and develop yourself. I was able to work autonomously, I learnt a lot and I was afforded many great opportunities to develop and execute innovate strategies.
Although they talk about health, wellbeing and work life balance it is only for a select few. J&J is the type of place where this is always so much to do and hence you will need to put in lots of hours to succeed. But in my view in the corporate world the 40 hour week no longer exists, so J&J is not different.

IF you have the time, they have great employee health and wellness initiatives you can take part in. I once told my colleague i was going to lunchtime yoga (I am entitled to a lunch break) and she asked me if i had time for that as we have work to get done (in so many words).
Good investment in training and development (just not a lot of time to do online courses so they are wasted)
10-12 hour days - always rushed; lot of stressful meetings/projects/colleagues
Often last minute urgent requests but you cant let the rest of your work slide
Not a 'ONE team working together' practice, each department watches out for their own team and doesnt collaborate cross-functionally as well as they could. Wastes so much time, energy, resource etc

The company has a great Repetition.
Opportunity to gain experience
No training or developing.
extensive work load, no appreciation.
Advice to Management
Develop your Managerial skills
This is a great organization to develop technical skills, experience and build your networks. J&J has a culture that really lives and breathes the Credo. It is a culture that supports and empowers staff. Also, have great staff benefits:).
Nothing bad I can recall.
There are great facilities including an in-house gym with an excellent participation program. Lot of parking. The office is large and spacious.
While people were highly skilled and driven, people were encouraged to work in silo so there was little interest in collaboration across functions. The company's incentive system also encourage people to focus on the short term career gains. There is only a clear career pathway if you are in the sales and market role.
