I worked at Johnson Controls full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good, cheap benefits
Good opportunity for advancement
People are generally very nice
Corporate focus is on ethics, security and sales.

Cons

typical large public company, with focus on quarterly sales
Not sure if it's a con: growth is generally by acquisition
Non-mainstream business units get ignored for the most part
Not as much focus on the customer as there should be

Advice to Management

Being a public company, internal change can be slow. Trust that your employees want to do right by the customer. Often what holds them back is policies that management has made.

    Pros

    This is a company that truly values diversity and empowers employees to make decisions an contribute to the greater good in the company. It has a strong history. I left the company and returned. Great company to work for. I am in my 3rd position in 4 years. There are tons of opportunity to grow and develop

    Cons

    The pay is pretty well, they could improve benefits and vacation time. Very metrics driven, you can get lost in the number and the Tactics, abd lose focus on strategy or why we are doing something in the first place

    Pros

    My direct supervisors are great people and great to work for.

    Cons

    Corporate could care less about their employees bettering themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Provide clear paths to achievement. Set clear expectations as to what it takes to better yourself inside the company. Do not let HR come from Corporate office and tell your staff that they are stuck in a dead in job at their current location.
