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.

    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.

    Pros

    Decent Finance organization that does far more than they normally do at a company.

    Cons

    Not a very long term view. Insular culture. Just give me the money attitude.
