    I have been working at Johnson Controls full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    My career has benefited from the variety of training opportunities which are offered both locally and corporately. I have enjoyed the on the job training which have solidified my HVAC knowledge of how a building works and how the customer requires us to perform.

    Cons

    Work life balance as a field employee can be taxing. Many times you have to work late keep up with the demands of the construction of a building.

    Pros

    Great Benefits and access to tools that allow you to be successful. As long as you are meeting your goals you are given the autonomy to manage your own business and sales efforts among your assigned accounts.

    Cons

    It seems like this company is driven by excessive micromanagement from corporate and regional managers, however, at the local level management will focus on minimizing road blocks to ensure success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less focus on old, internal process that adds no value to our clients.

    I worked at Johnson Controls full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    There are no PRO's to this facility, I worked in the Middle town , Delaware Plant in the Battery division. It was the worst experience i have ever had in a work related field. I have over 20 Experience in the Management field. I word NOT recommend this place to my worst enemy .

    Cons

    GET RID OF THE UNION, or at least get them under control THEY RUN THIS FACILITY AND MANAGEMENT LET'S THEM, EVERYONE IS FRIGHTEN BY THEM.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow a pair! and really take a look at how this facility is run. NOW i can't say all of Johnson Controls are like the one in Middletown , DE or at least i HOPE.but the upper management needs to go in there and clean house.

    WORST PLACE EVER!

    I have been working at Johnson Controls

    Pros

    The people that I worked with are great people. Most have been a long time employees.

    Cons

    Once you get to the certain level of management, the politics and bureaucracy started to take over. It seemed that the strategy was constantly changing. Risk averse prevented innovation. Moving up requires one to understand how to navigate the politics landmine (and not necessary have to deliver on the performance)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to listen and not worry about the appearance of beautiful presentations.
