Current Employee - Operations Tech in Sycamore, IL

I have been working at Johnson Controls full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

There is not a whole lot of good things about Johnson Controls. I have been there 20 years, so I guess it's fairly secure as long as you have seniority and work in a union shop.

Cons

Long hours, 12 hour days not unusual. Benefits suck. No chance to move up. Employees are treated as if they are stupid. No chance to use your brain, they don't believe in "thinking" employees. Plants are heavily micro- managed from corporate in Milwaukee, WI.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My advice to management would be to replace all local management team at the Sycamore, IL facility. They are destroying the plant/profit margin of this facility.

    Pros

    They believe in integrity and treating employees with the utmost respect.

    Cons

    They're in a time warp. We are a global 50 organization with little or no name recognition in the marketplace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start telling the world how good you really are, and then go out to the marketplace and prove it.

    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.
