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.

    I worked at Johnson Controls full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits and perks. Big company, with lots of opportunities. You can learn a lot in a very short amount of time, everyday there is something different or new to work on. Fast paced environment, things move pretty quickly. I really liked the people I worked with, which made the job that much better. People are friendly and actually hang out after work. It's in a good location. Enjoyed going to work everyday, actually kind of miss it!

    Cons

    HR is slow to hire and get paperwork done. Some overtime is required during certain times. We worked some Saturdays, but got paid for the overtime so not a big deal. Can be stressful at times which may be a con for some people, but I enjoyed it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on the fundamental quality principals that are in place and actually enforce them. Things would improve greatly if the enforcement came from the top down. Follow through on promises. Earn the respect of the employees.
