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.

    Pros

    Overtime helped compensate for low hourly rates.

    Cons

    Long hours required doing boring, repetitive assembly work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management not intimate with process flow, quality issues, and origin of issues. Poor lighting in some of quality check areas and acceptable check parameters often poorly defined. Tools used to perform checks properly often came up missing.

    I love my job and the team I work with, but I can't speak for the rest of the departments.

    Pros

    Excellent training facilities and time is provided to ramp-up to the level of the job, before they expect a certain amount of work output from you. The team I work with is fantastic and the best in the country to use innovative methods to calculate savings. Great team to work with.

    Cons

    1. Lacks consistency in management. I have had 3 bosses in the last 3 years that I have been with this company.
    2. Sales does drive everything, but retaining Customers is also very important. Let's not lose focus on that!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please don't take advice from consultants to change the ENTIRE corporate structure, just because they feel there is more business to go after, in this bad economy. We, as a company, are doing well, even in a bad economy and that is a good thing, but changing the structure and laying off new hires is not a good idea.
