    Former Employee - Junior Software Engineer in Limerick, Limerick

    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Reasonable salary; -Good benefits, insurance; Fruits daily; -Share purchase; Onsite gym, doctor, etc; -A few smart people to work with; Some people are friendly if theres no politics involved; -Opportunities to work on large-scaled challenging projects; Encourage workflow improvements. -Activities, meetups, lunch and learns were supported. -JnJ has good company cultures globally. -Work-life balance - depends on projects -Some courses and conferences organized by HR for graduates. -It was once a great place with many talents and encouragement of learning and innovations, until controlled by the hypocrites. Management seems to be blinded by them.

    Cons

    -There are a lot of conflicts with other branches of JnJ. Colleagues outside the branch and contractors are sometimes kept in the dark about their status. -Office politics are everywhere. Hypocrites talk jives, goof around and take other's credit, but the management trusts them. Promotions aren't based on merits. Who attends training or conferences is base on how friendly you are with your manager, not skill needs. A lot of secret meetings behind your back, as well as gossiping and trash-talking; it is not an environment for earnest people who just want to work. After a certain time, an employee would either have to play the same game (I witnessed decent people turning like that over time in this toxic environment) or be targeted, bullied, have their merits stolen and eventually pushed out. It may be the right place to learn to play politics. Real talents wouldn't stay long. -There is very little guidance and mentoring for junior employees; Low tolerance for learning curves. Junior developers are questioned on their abilities if they spend a bit longer to onboard. On the opposite, some particular "senior" developers really take their time learning on the projects or are never eager to improve. With the name of "Pair Programming", they can simpliy cover the truth about their real level. It also happened once or twice junior team members were jeered during so called "Pair Programming". -Even though JnJ has a good company culture, the development centre’s culture is mediocre. Despite the emphasis on diversity and inclusion, it is hard to progress if you are a not a white male. It is not surprising to hear jokes on one's ethnicity, background, accent, politic views, etc. The recruitment process is opaque. Overall, there is a clear difference in treatment between white and non-white, especially Asians. -Performance reviews and goal settings are a bit confusing, and in the end, it depends again on your relationship with whoever review you. -As a young female junior employee, I was harassed by a senior member for several years and bullied by his allies. My mentor (a white male) only asked me to resolve it myself and encouraged me not to speak up. When I finally decided to speak up, my mentor turned against me and revealed himself to be also part of the problem. I spent lots of time and money on mental counselling and therapy. Conclusion: my time at here was harrowing and exhausting. I ended up with serious depression problems.
