J&J Division that does not Walk the Talk
Product Development Engineer (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – 14 November 2016
The J&J Credo is the best that I have ever seen. However, ASP chants it in public but then goes to work and seems to forget that it ever existed. I've seen co-workers verbally abused to the point of tears by managers. Behavior that in other companies would put the manager in HR picking up his pink slip. The company is driven by schedules and management bonuses. The engineers could produce some terrific products if given the time and resources. But management is not very good at planning projects and makes the engineers cut corners on everything when the schedule falls behind.
The company is always trying the latest industry fads and fashions. There are some great benefits and good job security. (saw a guy get caught stealing a co-workers iPhone and just got a slap on the hand). They are into the 'open-office' layout, only offices for VPs, everyone else is on a first-come, first-get work station policy. Makes people get to work on time. Come in late and who knows where you get to sit. Everyone has a locker just like high school for your personal items. Many of the workers seem to like this arrangement but I think it is highly inefficient.
So, overall ASP can be a great place to work for college grads and entry level positions. But if you are old school, this is may not be the ideal place for you.
Free Bagels on Wednesdays, New remodeled facility, good benefits, lots of training opportunities
