Pros

Fair compensation but not top level

Cons

Cultural and diversity issues drive business decisions. Assurances from management not always honored. For a company that very publicly displays its diversity and ethics it lacks corporate integrity when decisions are made when compared to their public image.

Advice to Management

Honor your agreements. If allowing lower level senior and mid-level managers to make decisions then the executive officers should have the integrity to follow and abide by these decisions. Be careful that your diversity culture does not end up running the company. If asked, I can honestly say that I would not recommend to a friend that a job with JCI would be a good career move. This is hard for me to say because I had a strong belief that JCI was a company worth staying at. A company that was worth the investment. I was wrong in that assessment.

    Pros

    You learn a lot about the industry. As a large supplier you really learn how to work with suppliers and customers. You learn about lean manufacturing and what it takes to make a profit in a difficult industry. The people are great. They are smart, strong and dedicated. They have a strong team environment. Teams are comprised from a cross functional background. This gives you the opportunity to work with many different disciplines.

    Cons

    The politics. As with many big organizations your promotion is unfortunately linked to who you know, not what you know. The strong players are kept at their current positions to carry the weight of the workload.
    A second downside is JCI is predominantly an automotive supplier and the company takes a hit when the big 3 take a hit.

    Advice to Management

    Be more respectful of the people. A better system for promotions and same grade job changes needs to be implemented.

    "Great company but slow HR staff"

    Pros

    Great benefits, upper management is quite motivated to improve the overall opinion of the employees. The potential is limitless and the tuition reimbursement is wonderful. They paid for $12,000 a year for graduate school so getting a masters is basically free. They pay for masters in basically any field that the company has a job in any department. Getting a PhD paid is much harder but not improbable. They determine on it by a case-by-case basis.

    Cons

    The HR department is horrifically slow and it can take months to get hire so potential candidates get discouraged and take a job somewhere else

    Advice to Management

    Better training for middle management. The ideas from Senior management don't really make it to middle management. It's hit or miss if you get a good supervisor
