“I enjoy the extreme wide variety of projects that we work on and get to be a part of. This provides opportunity for continuous learning and personal growth in our careers, which is often unavailable in other work places. Most of all, I really enjoy the extreme diversity of the people that work at J&J. The great many cultures, nationalities, talents, and experiences of everyone who works here is truly amazing.”
