Johnson & Johnson

J&J is one of the most respected corporation, especially in the U.S. It's a company that values ethics highly (as it should be with all companies).

The credo, however, is my key decision factor. Having seen Enron and knowing how business is done in Asia, I'd follow my heart in choosing my future company.
