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

Pros

Market leader. Nice people. Lot's of experience in the major metros.

Cons

Very top heavy at corporate. Regions know and run their business. Milwaukee (Corp) adds very little value. Lots of report ups.

Advice to Management

Stop taking the smart people out of the regions and moving them to MKE where they are ineffective. If you need to know the earnings just look at SMIS and hold the region accountable to its accuracy.
MKE is no use to the regions and keeps the regions from being in front of customers with all the reporting.
