    JCI was once headed in the right direction but the impact of bringing in poor leaders from Power division is showing.

    Pros

    Good people and great products.

    Cons

    Internal focus and constant shifting of strategies in Building Efficiency compounded by very poor leaders brought into BE from Power has driven best leaders out of company. Wall St seems to be tiring of lack of delivery.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Planning process is a demotivator to field mgmt. JCI is too internally focused and siloed. CEO has the right stuff but too many division leaders don't.

    I worked at Johnson Controls full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Strong brand in the market
    Nice people who think about work/life balance
    Pockets of excellence
    Fair compensation for the amount of work that is expected

    Cons

    Senior leadership in building efficiency very weak. In fact most of them should be replaced, but more likely they will move the deck chairs around again. CEO/CFO pay themselves a ton while the company continues to underperform and be forced to lay off workers. Unable to leverage scale to deliver superior product to end customers, instead act more like a slow moving glacier. Innovation a talking point, not a part of culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is to the board. Replace the senior leaders. In fact you should question why you have three divisions, the company would have more value broken apart. There is no benefit having all the divisions under one roof. All attempts to shift expertise between divisions fails, and investors cannot invest in a pure play business.
