"Important work, but unbalanced sharing of perks and rewards."
What do you like about working at Johnson & Johnson?
"J&J is a solid company with an excellent (well-deserved) reputation. They understand that life does not start and end at their door, and actually take the commitment to their employees seriously. The people care about their customers (i.e., sick people) and generally behave in an ethical way. Further, the products being developed have a meaningful and beneficial impact on the lives of real people."
What don't you like about working at Johnson & Johnson?
"In the group I was in, I found the culture incredibly clubby and provincial. A high number of European expats, who favored one another in plum assignments, promotional opportunities, and recognition, led to an us/them problem. People get pigeon holed easily, and there is plainly a two-class system. The top tier basically travel, go to conferences, run their mouths, and generally do little or no actual work. The second tier stay in the office and do the work, frequently with little thanks from their peers. And the talkers are the ones who get the promotions and perks."
What suggestions do you have for management?
"I would recommend to change the obvious work horse/show horse culture, or after enough time, the capable people who provide the actual work will leave, and nothing will remain besides the Potemkin workforce who know how to make travel reservations, but not much else."
