Former Employee - Global Work Place Solutions - Mid-senior Position in Milwaukee, WI

I worked at Johnson Controls full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great salary and benefits. Mid level people can be great despite terrible managers. Learned a lot because of survivor-like atmosphere.

Cons

No work life balance, lack of growth opportunities, no resources -- sink or swim. No one is accountable but want to micromanage and then point fingers if anything goes wrong. No training. Expect more layoffs if Management above GWS does not take an interest and fix the systemic problems in the operating model.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

No appreciation of its people. Seen as arrogant in FM marketplace. Senior management will throw you under the bus after not supporting on tough to impossible assignments. GWS has lost its focus - too much overhead, internal bureaucracy, no accountability.

    Pros

    Staff and management are friendly.

    Cons

    Seems to be a big communication gap between former employees of York and new Johnson Controls over decisions and responsibilities.

    Pros

    Safety concerns at all levels;
    Well funded programs;
    High value brand

    Cons

    Profits above people was expressly communicated by managers;
    Unreasonable Profit margin expectations in down economy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the revolving door. Remove layers of managers rather than field workers who made this company into its current state through hard work and customer focus.

    Never again state in a staff meeting that while we know that times are tough out there, "but we still have quoteas to hit no matter what."
