    Great company, but very silo'd

    Former Employee - Human Resources Manager in Milwaukee, WI
    Former Employee - Human Resources Manager in Milwaukee, WI

    I worked at Johnson Controls full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Huge company with great benefits and very friendly and personable coworkers. Company consistently grew year over year and it was exciting to be a part of it.

    Cons

    For how big a company it is, JCI operates in silos - that is to say that the different divisions don't talk to one another and it is very hard to transfer into another group. Stress can be high at times during the year, especially around Aug/Sept right before the close of the fiscal year. Variable pay (bonuses) don't start until you are at Sr Manager level, which is a very small % of the employee population...and even then the bonus % aren't very high and seldom get paid out at 100%

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote more across the enterprise - between divisions. There should be a "One JCI" atmosphere instead of a division first attitude.

    I worked at Johnson Controls full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I worked with a small software development team in Connecticut. The team was truly agile, almost every member of the team worked remote, however this did not affect the work culture at all, we were one cohesive team. Every member of the team was well experienced, and had different areas of focus and strength, and was open with sharing their strengths with the rest of the team. The work culture of the team was excellent, ethics of the broader company was great.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, keep up the great work
