Negative Outlook

I worked at Johnson Controls full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great salary and benefits. Mid level people can be great despite terrible managers. Learned a lot because of survivor-like atmosphere.

Cons

No work life balance, lack of growth opportunities, no resources -- sink or swim. No one is accountable but want to micromanage and then point fingers if anything goes wrong. No training. Expect more layoffs if Management above GWS does not take an interest and fix the systemic problems in the operating model.

Advice to Management

No appreciation of its people. Seen as arrogant in FM marketplace. Senior management will throw you under the bus after not supporting on tough to impossible assignments. GWS has lost its focus - too much overhead, internal bureaucracy, no accountability.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    JCI has an enormous support system within their Intranet System for training and general process as well as corporate information. They are a leader in the technology field.

    Cons

    Typical Large Corporation. They are not concerned with you as an employee or as an individual. Their bottom line is all that matters and jobs are eliminated to suit their needs without consideration of your performance, loyality or experience.

    No opinion of CEO

    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.
