    Zero Direction

    Senior Financial Analyst (Current Employee)
    Milwaukee, WI

    ProsFantastic campus and great co-workers. Get to work with people from all over the globe. Great work / life balance.

    ConsZero challenges. Continual reorganization plans. Constantly spinning your tires as management changes their mind on a month to month basis on what they think is important and what they want to see. Feel like you're consistently doing busy work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide some consistent direction.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good company built on good values

    Director (Current Employee)
    Milwaukee, WI

    Pros- Strong corporate values
    - Foundation of operational excellence
    - Opportunities for advancement (if you know the right people and do well)
    - Decent benefits
    - Passionate, driven, dedicated colleagues
    - Strong personal connections among employees

    ConsWork life balance is often a challenge. Paths for development and advancement are unclear. Diversity is sorely lacking in upper and middle management. Office politics can run unchecked, leading to lost productivity and employee dissatisfaction.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't sacrifice the future to near term priorities, nor rely solely on our operational excellence for long term results. Take care of, listen to, and respond to your people.

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

    Rewarding

    Finance Project Coordinator (Former Employee)
    Milwaukee, WI

    ProsTreated with respect, integrity and honest communication are valued, good opportunities for advancement, you just need to be proactive, rewards and recognizes hard work

    ConsIf you are at a smaller location it's harder to network with other individuals in other parts of the company. Large corporate environment, you can feel like a number.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees, they have good insight on what's happening within their team and within the organization

    Good Job

    Project Manager (Current Employee)
    Milwaukee, WI

    ProsEmployee Loyalty is very important in the company if you do a good job. This is rewarded by usually working with you to find you the right job till you fing the correct fit within the company.

    ConsLong Work Hours weem to a prerequisite, whether working form home or trying tocomplete projects. Also to get further within the company relocation and moving family seems to be the norm to get diverse experiences as this is an intermational company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo a good lob to keep the company successful for over 125 years

    Finance Intern

    Finance Intern (Former Employee)
    Milwaukee, WI

    ProsJohnson Controls is a global company with a strong reputation. The internship program gives you exposure to upper level management through a speaker series.

    ConsJohnson Controls fails to give interns a lot of responsibility. The work is often times monotonous, and the work environment can at times be tense.

    Stable company, nice people

    Senior Program Manager (Current Employee)
    Milwaukee, WI

    ProsNice people, interesting work. Great location for Summer Fest. Make an effort to plan goals and conduct yearly reviews, even if goals are not tracked throughout year.

    ConsToo caught up in processes. Company is a dinosaur that moves too slow. Needs to streamline in order to react to market changes quicker. Can't get out of its own way.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet back that enterprising spirit and stop burdening yourself with over the top process requirements.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
