I enjoyed working for Johnson Controls because it was a safe place that valued it's employees opinions.

Facilities Coordinator (Former Employee)
Southfield, MI

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

ProsI was part of a team that initiated improvements within Johnson Controls. I was compensated accordingly, and the management treated non-management staff with respect. Johnson Controls provided safe equipment or reimbursed us for the safety equipment we purchased. They made me fell like a valued employee.

ConsIn such a large corporation, you don't get face to face time with people. This can make it more difficult to have good working relationships.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work.

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

First class organization that requires strong business ethics, safety, performance, accountability.

Manager (Current Employee)
DFW, TX

I have been working at Johnson Controls as a contractor for more than 3 years

ProsA safe work environment is provided always. Well organized managemant structure that practices good leadership. Better than average pay with expectations of required performance.
Managers are given a great deal of autonomy within the company ethical guidelines; in which to operate.

ConsA very large organization that you can sometimes feel miniscule as a part of. A lean organization that reduces workforce vs workload - they don't carry any extra people. Work-life balance is good if you are not traveling much.

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