Pros

. Very determined and committed leadership
. Forward thinking business approach
. History of impactful innovation
. Insistent on financial results

Cons

. Too focused on metrics, often at the expense of people
. Dogged determination to make the numbers, almost at any cost
. Runs way too lean; most people doing 2-3 jobs after RIF's with no title or pay adjustments
. Overworking people; sometimes run production people 7 days/week
. Overly structured; not enough flexibility about roles
. Too many decisions made at Corporate for field or plant locations by people who do not know the businesses or the people
. Really bad at change management, especially after M&A's (Attitude is "we bought you, so just do what we say.")
. Many fake processes in place (like a global employee survey that people lie on)
. Johnson Controls really c-o-n-t-r-o-l-s.
. Seems very willing to cut people or change their roles without their notification or buy-in.

Advice to Management

. Give people the recognition and opportunities they deserve.
. Don't put all the best jobs in Milwaukee if they don't have to be there.
. Stop micromanaging. Let people do their jobs.

    Pros

    Very good pay and benefits

    Cons

    Because Johnson Controls is always seeking to cut costs to improve their financials, your job or entire department could be eliminated in a flash

    Pros

    GREAT People, Super Values - Integrity, Innovation. Love the 10 year marke objectives - global growth and employee engagement are so important! Great work location, wonderful gym - Affinity networks rock

    Cons

    Churn and Burn - Hard to balance your Life. We work lots of very long days especially when we are on global initiatives.

    Advice to Management

    Be nice to the people that actually do the work because they will be the last person you see as you are being exited out of the building.
