Here’s what current and former employees have to say on Glassdoor:
“Pros: Stable company; good managers; good coworkers. Cons: Unrealistic quotas; little career advancement.” —Current employee
“Pros: Great company; benefits are industry standard; great team; had the challenge of launching new indications. Cons: Pretty stuck on what ever sales model they choose for that year. Unfortunately it is not comfortable for all people to sell in a scripted environment.” —Former employee
“Pros: Sharp, high-quality, collaborative co-workers; compensation is very good if you’re prepared to let your work/life balance suffer; culture is high stress if you can survive it. Cons: Company cares more about recruiting and quickly promoting college hires (that tend to leave after 2-3 years after getting J&J on their resume) instead of rewarding talented, dedicated, loyal employees who “grind it out” leveraging relationships and know how to get things done.” —Current employee
“Pros: Great benefits; most employees are loyal to credo and exhibit credo-based behaviors. Cons: Too much red tape with hiring processes; hard for people to move cross function and develop if they want to stay at the company.” —Current associate director of R&D
“Pros: Money; advancement; lenient schedule; management; benefits. Cons: Hours; deadlines; goals; customer relations; on call time.” —Former employee
“Pros: You will be able to get involved in challenging opportunities. Cons: Work-life unbalanced; low opportunities for professional growth; constantly outsourcing employees to oversees contracts.” —Former employee
