Company that cares for their staff and a fast past and challenging
Customer Services Consultant (Former Employee) – East London – 21 October 2018
The position had daily deadlines which were challenging and stressful, but rewarding. The management looks after their staff by hearing what improvements can be made and helping when there are concerns. We were all high valued and often rewarded for our hard work. My manager was friendly and had an open-door policy. I feel the greatest challenge was the volume of work. I learnt how to deal with logistical issues and product demand. I enjoyed being a part of the new product ranges that were developed ie testing and packaging approval etc.
Very supportive work environment and good colleagues, all team players.
Fitter and Turner (Current Employee) – East London – 27 July 2018
A typical day at work revolves around attending to breakdowns firstly, should there be any, and carrying out planned maintenance and repairs on machinery that has been signed over to Engineering for maintenance.
I have grown a lot personally at JnJ as they have an excellent health and vitality program for employees.
Management provide good leadership and feed back with regards to what is happening in the company both locally and globally.
JnJ has a great work culture and promotes team work throughout the organisation.
The most enjoyable part of the job for me is working with a motivated team that strives to deliver the best maintenance service we can to production in order for the production guys to achieve the targets.
Medical aid and retirement fund paid in full by the company and is part of the TCTC
Sales specialist (Current Employee) – South – 21 July 2018
Being an account manager it may get lonely, but Johnson and Johnson have lots in place so this never happens and you always feel secure. Through a management culture of always putting the employees first, we hare part of a team, Always have helplines available to us to report anything we need to or as someone ego talk to.
unfortunately like any big company they are making but backs, this has been in the sales person commission scheme.
Associate Account Manager (Current Employee) – High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire – 8 July 2018
Really lovely work culture, people are very friendly and the work is difficult but meaningful. It great being part of a company that touched so many lives.
However, due to to the size of the company, it is very slow to get things moving. There is a lot of compliance and red tape to get through and a lot of stakeholders who need to be engaged on every project.
Process Development Technologist (Former Employee) – Blackwood – 4 March 2018
A typical day would be to support production departments to meet their targets with efficient processes. Always something to learn, whether technical or practical. A big emphasis is placed on job training, learning the skills required and also safe working practices. Staff and colleagues very friendly and supportive as are all levels of management. A professionally structured company, environmentally friendly. Social life outside of work hours is good with friendly staff. An enjoyable part of the work was the development and investigation into processes using new materials.
People dont leave organisation, they leave their managers. So, the company motto is always good and ideal, but the people , be your supervisor or the people who are above you in organisation should be able to understand your propblem and gyuide you though.

Fair compensation & advancement opportunities for the right people
Digital Marketing Manager EMEA (Current Employee) – Leeds – 15 February 2016
Fair compensation package with decent benefits. Advancement opportunities for those who put themselves in the right place at the right time, but not entirely done on merit. Company has a strong culture and philosophy i.e. 'the Credo' and there is evidence of it in use, though also examples of where it is completely ignored. Conservative, risk-averse and slow-moving.
COMMERCIAL MANAGER (Former Employee) – Leeds – 27 February 2016
J&J Medical UK has a highly sales focused culture, focusing on the top line rather than bottom line margin. Great if you work in sales, but for anyone with a commercial background, this means you take a back seat. The culture is highly geared to the sales teams, meaning other departments and back office staff are treated as the poor relations
Working here was an absolute pleasure, everyone was made to feel part of a team all striving to achieve targets and achieving goals set.
The company believed in a credo that stated on plaque in reception, "You are more important than the job" meaning they look after you, than you will look after the job, that really seemed to be the case.
Unfortunately worldwide restructuring meant closure of the Portsmouth unit.
