Former Employee - Marketing Manager - New Product Development in Plymouth, MI

Pros

JCI is well managed. They are aggressive in controlling costs and quick to pull the plug on unsuccessful programs. Lots of advancement potential within the various divisions. The auto division is very well thought of throughout the industry and is considered a very tough competitor. JCI is a tough negotiator with the OEMs and will readily walk away from unprofitable business.

Cons

The bottom line is extremely important, be aware of potential layoffs even during good times. JCI has lots of alliances with minority suppliers that were great in getting them contracts in the past but will probably be a drag on their growth in the future.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

JCI needs to beef up its interior and seating new product development if it wants to maintain is leadership position.

    JCI continues to downsize to ensure shareholder performance objectives are achieved.

    Former Employee - Program Manager in Plymouth, MI

    Pros

    Strong financials and excellent senior management. The business is significantly impacted by the overall automotive sector but the company takes aggressive steps to ensure a competitive position in every market condition. Managers are competent and the product development and factories run well to customer expectations.

    Cons

    Career planning for middle management and those termed "high potential". Despite the label, the process for developing these employees is poor. The overall strategy for human capital throughout JCI is marginal as there is no formal system to move within the organization. Job postings, positions and opportunities are all based on word of mouth and clicks that exist within the organization. Expectations management is also an area where improvements could be made from employees and Business Units.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop an effective employee development plan for top performers.

    Pros

    johnson controls was once a wonderful place to work. They expect a lot out of their employees, but it was once a take and give situation. It has now become a take and take situation.

    Cons

    It is very scary to watch a very large corporation cut corners and pinch pennies in the places they have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and start treating employees like people the way the company once did. You can not continue to cut position and expect people to be able to pick up the extra work left behind and still do the right things. The company speaks of morales and values ,, where have they gone ??
