    I worked at Johnson Controls full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I worked with a small software development team in Connecticut. The team was truly agile, almost every member of the team worked remote, however this did not affect the work culture at all, we were one cohesive team. Every member of the team was well experienced, and had different areas of focus and strength, and was open with sharing their strengths with the rest of the team. The work culture of the team was excellent, ethics of the broader company was great.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, keep up the great work

    Pros

    Even in an area that is notorious for its lack of diversity, this company actively seeks to diversify its workforce. I notice a truly ingrained culture of growth through promotions within and people who really do stay with this company for 20+ years being the norm. This company is truely global and is continuing to grow.

    Cons

    The only con that I see is the compensation is a tiny bit lower than average competing companies in the area for similar engineering skills and this is the main reason there is any attrition at all (primarily among younger people who don't understand the value of a steady business). I wouldn't let that hold you back, its a strong company with a true commitment to conducting an ethical business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue allowing employees access to training, industry conferences & continued education and people will continue to be happy.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule for family. Safe, clean working environment. Employees taken care of. Employees get a bonus almost every year as long as the division had a good year.

    Cons

    Hard to move up in the company. Lots of changes in the company right now and that makes employees nervous about their future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know your employees and reward the hard workers. There are some people who don't seem to work as hard or care as much as others.
