    Pros

    J&J have a reputable and trustworthy reputation in the healthcare environment . For employees they pay well , have excellent benefits package and treat staff with respect and transparency.

    Cons

    Very corporate driven which means constant change in leadership a lot of unnecessary communications filtering down and slow to bring on new innovations to the sales force.

    Advice to Management

    Try and be yourself more and believe in your strengths rather than just towing the company line .
