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

Pros

It's good work environment with lots opportunities for growth and decent training programs. There is a very hardcore safety culture at JCI and they take safety VERY seriously so they really do put the employees health and safety 1st .

Cons

JCI is a publicly owned company and thus falls victum to it's own bean counting. This is good for employees since it makes JCI reliant on it's own workers. It's business practices make working within the company convoluted and full of silo walls. All the bean counting and mimizing of sub-department budgets leads to bare minimum budgets which complicates the daily routine with minimul support and substantial over-head. All of this creates real job security for employees who have worked there a while and learn all the hoops to jump through. Anyone making a valid effort to do their job and do it well is appreciated and given their regular 3% raise per year. So even the cons can be pros, although there are a lot of head-shaking moments of disbelief.

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

    Pros

    Nice people, interesting work. Great location for Summer Fest. Make an effort to plan goals and conduct yearly reviews, even if goals are not tracked throughout year.

    Cons

    Too caught up in processes. Company is a dinosaur that moves too slow. Needs to streamline in order to react to market changes quicker. Can't get out of its own way.

    Advice to Management

    Get back that enterprising spirit and stop burdening yourself with over the top process requirements.
