    Pros

    The culture was incredible - great balance between working hard and playing hard. A lot of opportunities to get promoted within. Great pay and benefits. For such a large company, you feel like you actually have a voice that is getting heard (which I've found to be rare within large organizations).

    Cons

    In all honesty... no cons come to mind. As long as you are willing to put in the work, you will be recognized and rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    Former Employee - Marketing Communications Manager in Milwaukee, WI

    Pros

    Very forward and marketing-oriented thinking for an engineering-based organization.

    Cons

    The company doesn't always do its due diligence when hiring. Tendency to overlook key gaps in both skill sets and personality/management style in deference to hiring someone from a Fortune 100/500 company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not overlook talent because they do not have a "pedigree" or are over 40.

    Intellectualy stimulating, great salary and benifits , intraprenural opportunities, and visdionary management. These are all the reason I enjoyed working at Johnson Controls.
