    I worked at Johnson Controls full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are good if you can stay long enough to accrue. Some managers have been trained how to get the best out of their employees, and are a pleasure to work for.

    Cons

    Rather than using existing employees in different capacities, upper management uses periodic mass lay-offs, which are a waste of human capital and company resources. Some managers are not trained in effective leadership and psychology, and make decisions based on emotion instead of logic.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage and hold managers accountable for recognizing unique skills of their employees and promoting job advancement.


  2. "Good stability, growth not promising."

    I have been working at Johnson Controls full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The job is pretty stable as it produces a high volume of product coming in and out of the door. The benefits are pretty good as it has a good company match and other discounts on random purchases you may want to have.

    Cons

    They don't want to put in the time and energy to develop you to get to the next level. Management does a poor job communicating.

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn't do a good job communicating as there are a lot of last-second decisions made.
