Pros: excellent benefits, collaborative culture, opportunities to work in various roles
Cons: almost 100% travel, complex matrix org structure
DISCLAIMER: I work remotely in a 100% travel role which is unusual
Typical day - up very early to work ET hours and/or in transit to a remote location. Work is varied and challenging. I learn something new every day.
Management is very engaged and involved.
Co-workers are also engaged and desire to serve our customers and live the Credo.
Hardest part – more... is trying to balance work and the rest of personal life, given the 100% travel
Most enjoyable is the sense of accomplishment as everyone pulls together to complete a task.
All that said, there are some challenges to be aware of... it is a very large, complex organization that is highly matrixed. There can be a lot of overlap and ambiguity about roles and boundaries. If you are interested in working at J&J, it's just something to keep in mind and consider as you integrate into the company. – less
