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

Pros

Very deep support for empolyees;
Safety concerns at all levels;
Well funded programs;
High value brand

Cons

Profits above people was expressly communicated by managers;
Unreasonable Profit margin expectations in down economy

Advice to Management

Stop the revolving door. Remove layers of managers rather than field workers who made this company into its current state through hard work and customer focus.

Never again state in a staff meeting that while we know that times are tough out there, "but we still have quoteas to hit no matter what."

    I have been working at Johnson Controls full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There is not a whole lot of good things about Johnson Controls. I have been there 20 years, so I guess it's fairly secure as long as you have seniority and work in a union shop.

    Cons

    Long hours, 12 hour days not unusual. Benefits suck. No chance to move up. Employees are treated as if they are stupid. No chance to use your brain, they don't believe in "thinking" employees. Plants are heavily micro- managed from corporate in Milwaukee, WI.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to replace all local management team at the Sycamore, IL facility. They are destroying the plant/profit margin of this facility.

    I have been working at Johnson Controls full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They believe in integrity and treating employees with the utmost respect.

    Cons

    They're in a time warp. We are a global 50 organization with little or no name recognition in the marketplace.

    Advice to Management

    Start telling the world how good you really are, and then go out to the marketplace and prove it.
