I worked at Johnson Controls full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Johnson Controls has many channels and opportunities for value to be added to a person's professional experiences. The tools and range of resources available to a professional are many and wide. Johnson Controls is well known throughout the country.

Cons

The company's foundation is one of low risk and smaller-margin operations, and as a result is losing touch with it's most important asset...it's people as well as the customer's people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen - openly. Invest in broader resources especially in leadership. People make a difference. Technology helps, but it is only an AID to people - both in your company and for the customer.

    I have been working at Johnson Controls full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people are mostly intelligent, ethical, and interesting. The pace and workload are generally reasonable. My manager pays a lot of attention to people development, and to building coalitions across organizational boundaries.

    Cons

    The multipley-matrixed organization structure is hard to navigate, the Automotive Experience group is rather a poor stepchild within the larger corporate world, and the AE management focus is almost completely in terms of meeting monthly and quarterly financials. Pay scale is average or below for the industry; benefits also are average at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider how the organization structural churn is inhibiting getting any real work done.
