I loved my year at Johnson & Johnson Consumer Healthcare. I was part of the sales department, but also had lots of interaction with colleagues outside of sales. Johnson & Johnson had a big focus on personal development, and if you show interest, you can get lot's of opportunity to work on interesting projects. Johnson & Johnson really take care of employees well-being, and offer lots of benefits, such as free gym memberships.
My placement year has been one of the most valuable and enjoyable experiences I have ever had the opportunity to undertake. It has been a busy year working on a variety of cross functional projects and I have learnt so much throughout my time at Johnson & Johnson.
It was a great year, I learnt a lot that I can bring back to my university course and for my future career. Everyone was really welcoming and made sure that you got what you wanted out of the placement. There were amazing extras to working for JnJ including free gym and PT sessions, staff shop of JnJ products, exercise reimbursement and football / climbing/ gardening clubs. There was many opportunities to do volunteering within and outside of the company with 5 paid days of volunteering a year. Also a large group of around 20 students in Leeds provided a great friendship group. The work itself was really interesting and I got to have some many more amazing experiences than I would have if I didn't do this year.
I have had a fantastic year at Johnson & Johnson and have gained so much insight and experience into what a marketing role really entails. I had projects with real responsibility such as briefing creatives to agencies, doing customer research and working on new product launches. I had a great team who really valued my input and my ideas so I felt really welcomed into the business. There were lots of other placements which made it less daunting and meant I had people my age to hang out with at lunch and meet at the weekend.
An amazing company that really lives into its Credo and provides care for their employees. I experienced a variety of the company benefits as a student placement such as reimbursements for gym memberships to encourage a healthy workforce and awards in recognition of work I'd produced. Additionally, there is huge emphasis on diversity and inclusivity throughout the organisation which is demonstrated through their ERG groups (Bame, Open & Out, WLI and ADA Mental Health Diplomat groups).
I really enjoyed my placement at JnJ. I worked within the Janssen entity (Pharma) and was given such a range of opportunities which have really development my employment skills. I was treated as an employee, rather than an 'intern', and was given a large amount of responsibilities. JnJ employees are very supportive of your development. The Placement Scheme 'coordinators' work very hard to ensure you feel settled and are getting the support you need. There is a wide variety of career prospects at JnJ, with so many different functions and areas to work in, so there is always something new to learn.
I really enjoyed working in my team, everyone was so friendly and kind, and very generous with their time and explaining things. However, the nature of the work was quite repetitive and tedious at times. Sometimes you would spend a lot of time on a piece of work and then never get a reply or know how your work has been used by other business partners which is not very rewarding. But overall a good positive experience.
Working in the Consumer sector of J&J during my placement year, I found the overall experience very enjoyable and pleasant. From a work perspective, I was given a lot of opportunities to build upon my current skills and develop as a valued professional. There is a sense of 'work community' at the company, with there being numerous Town Halls, webinars and regional meetings to attend where you get exposure on the company at a wider level and across the different sectors.
I have had a really great year working at Janssen (the pharmaceutical company of Johnson & Johnson). My role was working in the regulatory affair department, as part of my role i had exposure to the whole R&D function of the business which was great to being to see what role would suit me best after i graduate. The global nature of this company means there are lots of initiatives you can get involved with as well as your day-to-day role.
I have really enjoyed my placement at DePuy Synthes Leeds, part of Johnson & Johnson, and would definitely recommend it to everyone interested in a placement. They have several departments so you get to know more placement students and have a friendship group together. You can also learn a lot about their departments, as well as get involved into numerous training and volunteering opportunities. This placement has been great for extending my knowledge into the domain I am interested in, as well as learn a lot more about other departments and how they work together.
I have loved my placement a lot, and a lot of that comes down to the company. They treat you really well and you feel cared about. The benefits were great and there were surplus amount of extra opportunities to get involved in other than my day to day job. The office was extremely inviting and clean, and every colleague really kind and helpful. There were lots of other interns too so a great opportunity to make friends with people my age.
I really enjoyed working in brand marketing. Everyone is so friendly and you are made to feel like a full time employee, not a placement student at all. I was given so much responsibility from leading the content development of the brand website to making first in class content for product pages. I couldn’t recommend the placement with J&J enough.
I really enjoyed my placement year at J&J. I had an opportunity to work on a variety of projects both internal and external to my department which helped me develop and strengthen many skills which I can adapt not only in my final year at university but also in my future career choices. At the beginning my day-to-day tasks were quite repetitive as you have to complete a lot of training and prove yourself before you are assigned more responsible tasks but once the team see that they can trust your work they really do make sure to provide you with projects that really add value to your CV.
Thoroughly enjoyed my placement year at Johnson & Johnson – due to the nature of my job I found that each day was different. Some days would be highly challenging to ensure that items were available for surgeries, whereas others were more relaxed and allowed me to be able to complete my day to day job.
I really enjoyed my work placement. I found the role very versatile, encompassing both creative and data driven work. I worked across two brands so had the opportunity to understand and cater to different consumer groups. I felt I had a lot of responsibility, and given numerous opportunities to lead my own projects.
I have really enjoyed my placement year with Johnson & Johnson working as part of the Digital Marketing team. I have learnt so much both within and outside of my job scope and worked alongside a friendly team. I have enjoyed all the tasks and projects i have been involved with this year including the opportunity to learn and develop skills outside of my day to day job by working with other teams.
