Johnson & Johnson Credo, huh?

What's up with this:

Dr. Vincent Lucente reportedly received about $800,000 over a period of 10 years as as consultant for J&J, during which time he made efforts to influence language used in medical trade publications.

No wonder doctors don't trust the data we use to sell. I'm with a division of JNJ and try to defend our data (cough) on a daily basis. How the **** can I defend it after reading this?

Corporate threatens to fire us for unethical behavior (credo) but do everything they can to bend the rules thinking we won't find out.

JNJ is no different. Credo, my ***.

Guess who's the worst offender for this issue (buying doctors and making them JnJ's mouthpiece)? ...... It's no other than Biosense Webster..... that company is just full of liars and opaque people (maybe it's too much sunshine out here)..... and this is coming from someone that works in this office.

For those in MD&D, this guy hit the nail on the head --

Anyone who's worked for the company for 5 years or more (my experience was in the MD&D sector) knows the Credo is used to brow beat employees into drinking the Kool-Aid. Like the alleged HR rep said earlier in this thread, the primary factor is the business bottom line, and thus becomes the implied first paragraph of the Credo. Whenever questionable business practices hit the headlines, JnJ will reliably trot out the Tylenol recall from 1982. In almost 40 years they have nothing better. There are, however, plenty of other bad optics (Pelvic mesh, Risperdal, talcum powder, ASR hips, physiomesh, ortho mcneil quality debacle, mentor implant issues etc.).

I understand that issues will happen with products and lawyers will be quick to jump on the personal injury train, but when the discovery phase of lawsuits shows that leadership KNEW of issues, sometimes years in advance, and did nothing, the Credo force-feeding takes on a level of cynicism. I was around for massive "displacements" and watched loyal employees thrown to the wayside before the holidays. The purge of tenured, "non-diverse" reps began years ago. I've literally watched a manager recommend a new hire because "JnJ loves diversity" when the interview was quite literally one of the most incoherent I've seen. They got the job.

Oh well, not my problem anymore. But I do feel for my former colleagues who are too far along to move on to something else and not far enough to retire.

This shouldn't surprise anyone who has worked at JNJ. The Credo is a mask for all their bullshit.

Like this?

Johnson & Johnson must pay $29 million to a woman who claimed its baby powder gave her terminal cancer, a California jury ruled Wednesday.

Seeking Alpha with the take down. Maybe the mainstream media will start seeing through J&J's b.s.

Summary

J&J has long held to operating with an established set of values known as "Our Credo"; which serves to guide its actions and decisions.

Proving it put people before profits, J&J’s actions in the 1982 Tylenol contamination case set the company up as the Gold Standard for crisis management.

Management matters. Those who were involved in the 1982 case are long retired. The recent history of actions and decisions by J&J’s senior managers seem inconsistent with their credo.

Starts at the top. Stock has done great but pay is down at MD&D, which is never a surprise, and actually expected.

Damn pension keeps everyone here.

Credo Schmedo!

He almost sat on the latest FDA panel too if the WSJ hadn't exposed the truth the evening before the FDA meeting. How did the FDA not do know?? www.killingmycareer.com/mmpiher-method/johnson-johnsons-jnj-pathological-public-abuse-with-the-fda-andrew-brills-second-edition/

Good article. The FDA probably knew but only came clean because of the WSJ.

The Credo is literally considered a joke to the reps. JNJ is ethically no different than any other company. In fact, they are probably worse.

They run their acquisitions into the ground.

Like Gynecare and Acclarent? Yup. sounds about right.

Yea...Gynecare was blown up and it sounds like Acclarent is next.

Would have to assume that Acclarent will merge with Ethicon and not have a stand alone sales force anymore.

Bye bye accarlent comp plan. Will turn into glorified Pharma $$'s
