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

Pros

Interesting work for the position, and managers who seem to be sincere in their support of personal and professional development. Company well-positioned in emerging markets. Flexible about work hours and work-from-home while remaining focussed on how employees can add value.

Cons

HR was somewhat obstructionist / rather rule bound. Salary offered was low for the industry, education and level of experience. Very difficult to maneuver to get things done, because the management hierarchy is so complex and responsibilities are unclear.

Advice to Management

The management structure is so complex we spend more energy on internal coordination than on serving customers. That aspect is the biggest dis-satisfier and the biggest threat to our success.
