Pros

Very competitive wages and, because JCI is world-wide, the possibilities for career advancement, are endless.

Cons

Technology is not streamlined, to give employees a single customer interface, so you don't truly have a complete customer view/history, making it extremely difficult when interacting with other divisions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I completely believe in the 8 Simple Rules for treating our customers and, wish those beliefs would be carried over to employees. I have applied for a couple of positions within JCI and, am very disappointed that the hiring managers failed to communicate status. If a candidate is no longer considered post-interview, at the very least, send an email advising the candidate of this. Our job posting system could be designed to automatically send a denial reply to an employee that makes it to the phone interview stage. Require the hiring manager to complete a survey. This is professional and courteous.

    Johnson Controls seems like a good company, but they don't plug in new hires.

    Pros

    Most of the people are nice, the facility is nice. The incumbent personnel who have been there for a while are like a tight-nit family, and have a clear direction and sense of responsibility and accountability.

    Cons

    They seem to skimp when it comes to travel arrangements, tools you need to do your job. Management is not receptive to ideas, and they hold on to old technologies and programming languages, not employing the latest proven technologies, methodologies, and best practices. They expect developers to work well over 40 hours a week to compensate for still using procedural programming, and they wonder why deadlines are missed and bugs are prevalent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because innovation is written on your banner doesn't mean you truly embrace it. Let your engineers spread their wings and use all the skills they have to grow your products.
