Pros

Nice people, interesting work. Great location for Summer Fest. Make an effort to plan goals and conduct yearly reviews, even if goals are not tracked throughout year.

Cons

Too caught up in processes. Company is a dinosaur that moves too slow. Needs to streamline in order to react to market changes quicker. Can't get out of its own way.

Advice to Management

Get back that enterprising spirit and stop burdening yourself with over the top process requirements.

    Pros

    If you're in need of money, the pay is good to start and you have access to ALL the overtime you could possibly want. The benefits are great, company stock usually does very well and there are a LOT of employee discount programs, including vehicles

    Cons

    The plant where I work is very unorganized as far as how well they manage the inventory for spare parts for machines, some of the simplest least expensive things can be out of stock when you need them, making your job unnecessarily harder, also the training program needs some work and there needs to be a program for tuition reimbursement for floor workers to advance their careers...strangely there is one for the people in the office (most of which have to already have some college to be IN the office) but the floor people are on their own in this area

    Advice to Management

    Train people better, keep parts in stock and it gets 5 stars

  2. Highly rewarding

    Pros

    Intellectualy stimulating, great salary and benifits , intraprenural opportunities, and visdionary management. These are all the reason I enjoyed working at Johnson Controls.

    Cons

    willingness to work long hours and travel where ever and when ever you are needed along with a willingness to do whatever it takes to get a job completed to the customers satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    grow your Research and development groups and spend time thinking from the end in order to prevent technological supprise from both internal as well as external competitors.
