Pros

Fair compensation but not top level

Cons

Cultural and diversity issues drive business decisions. Assurances from management not always honored. For a company that very publicly displays its diversity and ethics it lacks corporate integrity when decisions are made when compared to their public image.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Honor your agreements. If allowing lower level senior and mid-level managers to make decisions then the executive officers should have the integrity to follow and abide by these decisions. Be careful that your diversity culture does not end up running the company. If asked, I can honestly say that I would not recommend to a friend that a job with JCI would be a good career move. This is hard for me to say because I had a strong belief that JCI was a company worth staying at. A company that was worth the investment. I was wrong in that assessment.

    Poor on training at the branch level as there needs to be leadership not the good ole boy club.

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits for the employees.

    Cons

    Poor management and leadership skills are very distrubing for a Fortune 75 company. The customer's needs are not always in the best interest of the company. It's all about the margin dollar.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your managers the training or better yet- hire qualified managers!

    Johnson Controls, once a great company to work for, is now getting lean for the down economy.

    Current Employee - Account Financial Manager  in  Plymouth, MI
    Current Employee - Account Financial Manager in Plymouth, MI

    Pros

    You learn a lot about the industry. As a large supplier you really learn how to work with suppliers and customers. You learn about lean manufacturing and what it takes to make a profit in a difficult industry. The people are great. They are smart, strong and dedicated. They have a strong team environment. Teams are comprised from a cross functional background. This gives you the opportunity to work with many different disciplines.

    Cons

    The politics. As with many big organizations your promotion is unfortunately linked to who you know, not what you know. The strong players are kept at their current positions to carry the weight of the workload.
    A second downside is JCI is predominantly an automotive supplier and the company takes a hit when the big 3 take a hit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more respectful of the people. A better system for promotions and same grade job changes needs to be implemented.
