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

    Pros

    You can get good work experience here and there are some good people to work with.

    Cons

    On the consumer side there is a lot of inequality. There are a lot of bad managers that just act nice around others but really treat their workers poorly. It happens a lot across most groups and most of these managers are revered at the company and rewarded. It’s very political and the only way to get ahead is to have someone else that has a high status vouch for you.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people equally. Get rid of the old school politics.
