Current Employee - Senior Human Resources Manager in Norman, OK

I have been working at Johnson Controls full-time

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 ManagementAdvice

. 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.

    I worked at Johnson Controls full-time (more than 5 years)

    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
