    Pros

    Leading change in formerly stagnant environment. Selling off parts of business that don't make sense. Top Leadership being brought in with Global perspective and diversity

    Cons

    People just don't say hello at Corporate HQ. I think there is a Midwest mentality of not being comfortable with others.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and execute the CEO's plan, then address his integrity issue

    Pros

    You can literally go anywhere you want to go Excellent opportunities for advancement Good career prospects

    Cons

    Communication is a significant issue within the company, should be a significant area of concern. Moving around within the company is more about who you know rather than what you know. It is expected that you will do the job for some time before you receive the compensation for the higher level job.

    Advice to Management

    Be clearer in what is going on within the company. Provide better support for the people because it is after all the people that make a great company

    Pros

    JCI is a very results-oriented company. Managers will not micro-manage you if you're doing your job and delivering positive results. Although JCI has a fiercely competitive culture *see Con's below) the company also has a very family friendly culture and encourages a balanced work-family lifestyle. I can honestly say that I love working for JCI.

    Cons

    JCI is a Fortune 100 company that has undergone several "reorganizations" since I started with them 3 years ago. This is common with large-diversified companies but is still frustrating. Also, with these "reorganizations" they are known to "merge" regions and let go of the least-senior counterpart within the two regions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for growth and development

    Cons

    You have to be flexible with change and the pace at which it happens. If you don't like change, you will struggle. It's a very dynamic environment.
