    I have been working at Johnson Controls as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    They treat employees really well. The company just recently added 5 days of vacation to all full time employees. Interns are paid extremely well and hours are very flexible, especially during the school year. We are even allowed to participate in Summer Hours (9 hrs per day Mon-Thu, half day Friday) and aren't penalized for each month.

    Cons

    Every year you advance in school you get a pay raise, however this has to come with notification from the manager. Some managers are very slow at getting this taken care of and new hires that you train end up making more than you for a month or so.

    Advice to Management

    Keep treating your employees well so they love working for you. Keep it up with the benefits and events that happen around the campus.

    I have been working at Johnson Controls as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers are friendly, casual atmosphere, opportunity to advance and learn new programs.

    Cons

    Company needs to consolidate database systems into one main application for consistency and efficiency.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the communication going with your team as much as possible. It helps to feel like you're part of the team.

    Pros

    Great benefits, fair pay. Most co-workers are highly motivated and smart Get their work done. Locations was central to most things which was nice.

    Cons

    Large company, so not alot of face time with the higher-ups. If you want to make a change, it first needs to go through the management channels, which takes a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Work on communicating upcoming changes within the company. It's nice to have a sense of what is on the horizon instead of hearing things last minute or from other departments.

    Pros

    The culture was incredible - great balance between working hard and playing hard. A lot of opportunities to get promoted within. Great pay and benefits. For such a large company, you feel like you actually have a voice that is getting heard (which I've found to be rare within large organizations).

    Cons

    In all honesty... no cons come to mind. As long as you are willing to put in the work, you will be recognized and rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Very forward and marketing-oriented thinking for an engineering-based organization.

    Cons

    The company doesn't always do its due diligence when hiring. Tendency to overlook key gaps in both skill sets and personality/management style in deference to hiring someone from a Fortune 100/500 company.

    Advice to Management

    Do not overlook talent because they do not have a "pedigree" or are over 40.
