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

    Pros

    Super Co-contributions
    Focus on Health and Gym on site
    Sydney office location
    Had some great genuine people on the ground

    Cons

    Lack of leadership and vision at the top
    Focus on centralisation and bureaucracy, has led to all the true leaders leaving
    No trust or faith in management
    Not a place for those with entrepreneurial thinking

    Advice to Management

    It's going to need a lot of leadership change to turn that ship around. It so internally focused now that I think it's forgotten who it is, which has led to its current poor performance. The people it needed to help change it have all left in frustration and everyone I speak to on the ground don't trust the management and lost faith that it will see any change soon.

    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

    Pros

    The Credo is a living breathing way of working in this business which is brought to life on a daily basis

    Cons

    Company culture had suffered as a result of increased internal reporting to the detriment of working with customers

    Advice to Management

    Be mindful of the ultimate goal - to sell the J&J product

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    Great brands, corporate history and legacy. Excellent breadth of projects and company scale allows for career progression.

    Cons

    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.

    I have been working at Johnson & Johnson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    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)

    Cons

    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
