    Pros

    Good Benefits, some good managers, but very few.

    Cons

    No management structure, upper management is totally out of the loop of what actually is going on with the customer and they have no interest in knowing, its a swing door company, high turn over rate, and don't make waves or your outta there. Keep your mouth shut or your done, don't question anything.

    Advice to Management

    Get a CLUE on how to run a real business, if you want to be a Tier 1 supplier, look at how others are doing their work and the products they sell and do it better, ever heard of reverse engineering....yep thought not.

    I worked at Johnson Electric full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits that at end due to heavy workload could not even be used. Global work environment and some very nice people to work with in USA and China

    Cons

    Too many tasks required to be performed on urgent basis and not enough support provided. Orders were not on EDI and overwhelming to be processed manually!

    Advice to Management

    Management was aware of problems and capable to correct encountered issues but failed to provide adequate work support. They eliminated some positions and personally had to end up with a lot of work that for a single individual could not be at all tolerated!

    I worked at Johnson Electric full-time

    Pros

    Good group of co workers, diversity,

    Cons

    Employees do not rate management, tenure does not equal good manager

    Advice to Management

    Remove bullies, just because a manager works 7/24 does not equal a good manager. Look at how many people leave under the manager. Someone will bring laws for hostile work environments

    I have been working at Johnson Electric full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The organization is rich with diverse cultures. Focus change from being a product supplier to being a customer solutions provider is exciting and shows how well this organization is forward thinking.

    Cons

    The organizational structure is confusing by multiple levels of management without the proper staff support to meet the challenges necessary to perform efficiently. Each site uses a different ERP system with different general ledger processes, which makes it difficult to analyze variances across the region. Sometimes continuous change is counter productive without a clear focus on the end goal of improving efficiency and measuring real positive change.

    Advice to Management

    Need to streamline the hierarchy organizational structure by uniting the regional heads to a common goal, which will benefit the corporation as a whole instead of fracturing the structure by having competing corporate focus.

    Less management the better
