    Pros

    I work in IT and for the most part it is a good stable area with some growth opportunities. Great benefits, Good Salary and Decent Bonus. Good work -life balance.

    Cons

    Johnson controls is not an IT hot-bed of new technologies and software dev. If you are looking for excitement and use of cutting edge technologies this is not the place.

    Advice to Management

    I know the feeling is as multi-industrial / non-auto company the stock price will soar and borrowing will become less expensive. It a shame that the CEO and Board is so fixated on stock price. Auto Seating has carried the company for years!!

    Pros

    Efforts are typically rewarded fairly, great (and improving) benefits. Wide range of product and service offerings to serve various aspects of the building and construction markets.

    Cons

    Numerous changes to staffing and management over the past few years has left field employees unfocused and left to perform tasks they were not always prepared for.

    Advice to Management

    Re-focus on personnel development

    Pros

    Automotive Electronics division (now divested)- extremely well managed, good talent, strong leadership. Company knew its weaknesses and worked to improve

    Cons

    Decided to divest this division to the detriment of the employees

    Advice to Management

    I question the rationale for some of the automotive divestments. Think clearly before such radical changes to the portfolio.

    Pros

    Great company to work for for a good reputation, decent benefits, VERY involved in the community/corporate responsibility. Excellent pay and perks/discretionary benefits

    Cons

    A lot of layoffs followed by a hiring frenzy. Very hard to move to certain areas of the company...a LOT of who you know and not what you know goes on there.

    Advice to Management

    Give equal opportunities for all employees to learn, grow then move to other areas of the company. Don't extend promotions to "cliques" of people who clearly are not outstanding performers, but simply a part of the "in" group.

    Pros

    The freedom to be able to swift task every hour was great in terms of wear and tear in the body. The company would show its appreciation from time to time with free meals.

    Cons

    Working overtime was continuous when Toyota were running in high demand. Expect at least 7 hrs of OT a week, which still isn't bad

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up
