    Pros

    1) Johnson Controls can turn to be a tough negotiator while doing business deals, but knows how to make money.
    2) Senior management able to find right opportunities and pursue those opportunities.
    3) Diversified work force, You will see the world working here.
    4) Most diversified business among fortune100. All three diversified business (power solutions, automotive, building efficiency) running in profit. Stable source of income.
    5) They had put all there eggs in sustainable business, so stable.
    6) Innovator of many modern day power, automotive and building technologies. starting from the first thermostat.
    7) Paying good dividends and investor returns
    8) Good work life balance, but sometimes you have to burn midnight oil, depends on the project situation. But company recognizes the individual employee efforts.
    9) The most Green company among fortune 100.
    10) Benefits are good.

    Cons

    1) Doesn't take much risk while doing business. Only going for deals when they smell money and are sure that they can make money. Sitting on a cash pile company should take more risks, while adopting technology.
    2) Pay is not top notch, but above the industry average. Bonus is the key. If you get good bonus(based on company performance) you earn better than much of your peers in other companies.
    3) 140000+ employees, solid block, promotions are tough.
    4) Missing to identify talents working on the end of the hierarchical chain. Sometimes missing to put the right people at the right spot.
    5) No fun at workplace. I had previously worked with technology companies the crowd is younger , there are more employee fun events not only business update meetings. That's very much missing.

    Advice to Management

    1) Good Diversified work force, but need to think more like a company having global workforce. Long term cross boarder transfers of employees and collaboration with other offices should be strengthened. Should go more global.
    2) More brand awareness need to be created as a Technological leader. Attract talent in technology to become more sustainable. Bring in more younger workforce and fresh blood. Pay more and bring in talent from technological companies. Have more employee events (not business related) younger talent will automatically get attracted, will boost the morale of existing employees.
    3) Accelerate the pace of growth in Emerging markets (mainly China and India) ,at current pace JCI will miss lot many growth opportunities. Go for inorganic growth if needed. Tap the local talents in those markets well like (eg. Software talent from India)
