    Pros

    JCI is a Fortune 100 company and it's something you can really feel while working here. It is a global workplace in a true sense of the phrase and you get the opportunity to work with people from different backgrounds

    Cons

    If you really want to make it to the top, you have to be in Milwaukee. As much as it is global, the core is still very much in Milwaukee and there is little space for people from other parts of the country and the rest of the world. Also, the standard of salary increases is below par... There are promotions that occur when they are earned, but the benefit from them other than the recognition itself is very, very minor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You always say that your people are you most valuable asset, and I couldn't agree more. However, it is difficult to live this opinion when you don't show it through financial means. It's not only the ability to attract the cream of the crop, it's the ability to retain them as well that will make this company even greater.

    Pros

    Like most large companies with a sales force - Work ethic and travel are a must. However, many of their solutions are easy to sell with the right knowledge and skills.

    Cons

    Live and die by the spreadsheet. Johnson Controls talks about account management, but does not practice in any way. They sell a solution to a customer and walk away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what the sales force is asking for - tools and resources
