Good Experience, Good Company

Quality Engineer (Former Employee)
Holland, MI

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

ProsGood 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!

ConsHR 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 Senior ManagementFocus 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Product engineer in interiors group.

Product Engineer (Current Employee)
Holland, MI

I have been working at Johnson Controls full-time for more than 3 years

ProsLower management cares about employees and tries to maintain a small company feel. Numerous positions within the organization so you may be able to transfer to another group to try something new.

ConsAutomotive division is in flux with electronics being sold, visors & headliners being sold, and a joint venture happening soon for interiors. Many people are nervous about losing their job or the Holland facility closing. Although this can happen at any company, many people are anxious about not knowing the future of the Holland campus.

Numerous levels of upper management with people or structure changing every 1 to 2 years. Company has a "large company" feel.

Advice to Senior ManagementCut some layers of upper management. Stop reorganizing. Pick a structure and stick to it.

Engineer (Current Employee)
Holland, MI

I have been working at Johnson Controls as an intern for more than a year

ProsGreat People, Great environment, knowledge people. The products are cool and the technology is up to the date. worked in the AE department for 2 years within different teams. all the managers I had are great great people.

Consprocedure is slow. It takes too long to process anything. JCI is trying to get out the AE department and I think this is just a bad idea. Some people dont fit the corporate culture but I think it is more about their problem.
