Pros

Good pay Great benefits Yearly bonus You can get health insurance and be covered the day you walk in Medical debit card with $1,000 added yearly to help cover deductibles

Cons

No support between departments whatsoever You will spend a lot of time doing things that ultimately don’t matter You will be asked to work crazy shifts, come on weekends, stay late, etc Equipment and facilities are very old-no upkeep done Lots of PPE needed The environment has lots of lead in the air, as well as battery acid fumes The factory floor gets up to 110 degrees in summer Improvement projects in quality department are short sighted, provide no long term solution Basic systems like parts inventory don’t exist Employees get squeezed for all the work they can produce. Some work 12 hours 7 days a week. Lots of people are miserable

Pros

They offer health insurance first day of employment.

Cons

If you are interested in working for JCI understand you will have zero work life balance. You will work holidays and during vacations. Workers with young families will have a challenging time working for JCI. JCI bonus structure is not achievable and confusing to understand. JCI over works their employees and then reprimands them if behaviors are not perfect because of work overload. Expectations of growth are extremely high. JCI HR department is constantly changing hands with new reps. All have different ways of conducting business with no standardization. JCI does not pay vendors timely causing stresses for employees who need to use them to conduct business. JCI also demand customers to pay on time and will now punish the local branches of payment is not timely. JCI does not treat contracted customers well. Often pushing visits off to save revenue monthly. This is extremely challenging work environment especially with retaining customers. Lastly- Leadership are males, women in management are treated at a different standard. Overall stay clear of this company.

Pros

The people are great and have some of the best knowledge in the industry.

Cons

The Senior Management team is out of touch with reality of customer service. They seem to think when business is down instead of looking to improve customer service they just raise the prices. The customers are completely overlooked and it takes massive jumping through hoops to get the simplest of tasks accomplished. The field level spends 80% of their day fighting internally to service their customers. Whether it is through fighting with National Accounts or Invoicing and Billing issues. Their health insurance leaves much to be desired and is the worst plan I have ever encountered. They recently changed their 401K so they do not pay it out until the end of the year. Meaning the interest that would have accrued is depleted. The technical software tools are cumbersome and sometimes just do not work. There is a high level of frustration from the field teams trying to jump over internal obstacles just to service customers.

Advice to Management

Listen to the customers. More customers are flying out the door than in and there is a reason for it. Simplify the processes and have a higher level of accountability in response time to take action.
