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

Pros

Excellent training facilities and time is provided to ramp-up to the level of the job, before they expect a certain amount of work output from you. The team I work with is fantastic and the best in the country to use innovative methods to calculate savings. Great team to work with.

Cons

1. Lacks consistency in management. I have had 3 bosses in the last 3 years that I have been with this company.
2. Sales does drive everything, but retaining Customers is also very important. Let's not lose focus on that!

Advice to Management

Please don't take advice from consultants to change the ENTIRE corporate structure, just because they feel there is more business to go after, in this bad economy. We, as a company, are doing well, even in a bad economy and that is a good thing, but changing the structure and laying off new hires is not a good idea.

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

    Pros

    Strong brand in the market
    Nice people who think about work/life balance
    Pockets of excellence
    Fair compensation for the amount of work that is expected

    Cons

    Senior leadership in building efficiency very weak. In fact most of them should be replaced, but more likely they will move the deck chairs around again. CEO/CFO pay themselves a ton while the company continues to underperform and be forced to lay off workers. Unable to leverage scale to deliver superior product to end customers, instead act more like a slow moving glacier. Innovation a talking point, not a part of culture.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to the board. Replace the senior leaders. In fact you should question why you have three divisions, the company would have more value broken apart. There is no benefit having all the divisions under one roof. All attempts to shift expertise between divisions fails, and investors cannot invest in a pure play business.

    Challenging and fun place to work
    Upper management is transparent and approachable
    Excellent work culture and work pressures are manageable enough to maintain work-life balance

    Cons

    Since organization is tied to the fortune of the auto-industry, at times the pace of the organization is sluggish.

    Advice to Management

    Diversification by adding related product lines can create necessary opportunities
