I have been working at Johnson Controls full-time

Pros

Nice work and life balance. Excellent benefits with average compensation. Company is rapidly expanding to attempt to capture growth opportunities in foreign markets.

Cons

Middle management has a narrow focus and cannot think outside of their domain. Company seems to want to be a diversification play but may not have the resources necessary to successfully run three individual businesses.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on improving talent throughout the organization by expanding outside of internal promotions.

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

    I worked at Johnson Controls full-time for more than 10 years

    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.
