    I worked at Johnson & Johnson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly working environment, management allow a certain amount of free reign, emphasis on getting the job done, not adhering to policy

    Cons

    Lack of guidance or feedback, no real framework in place for advancement, can be left feeling adrift

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the achievements of employees, current policy allows for good talent to be lost to other companies in the face of uncertain advancement prospects

    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.

    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.

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