Approves of CEO

I worked at Johnson Controls full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great compensation.
Excellent internship experience.
Certain departments have a great atmosphere for developing younger employees.

Cons

Entry level jobs are very micromanaged.
Upper level management is very distant from entry and mid-level jobs.
Not enough communication between departments.

Advice to Management

Get more connected to lower level positions. It seems like upper management is not aware of what is happening day to day.

    I worked at Johnson Controls full-time

    Pros

    Compensation good, some positive people, increase number of new JCI employees which bring new positive ideas and solutions to the organisation and good company benifits.

    Cons

    -Core structure of company leadership is the key issue toward it's present and future performance
    -Intergration of York into the JCI organization a few years ago was not planed properly and has caused some major issue and concerns with JCI long term global customers.
    -Preperation of local branch management to succefully drive the company forward and show customers that JCI are the leading organization has not been the focus of the corporate leaders
    -No uniformaty of processes or procedure in the organization
    -Extreamly poor communication of leadership within JCI which has been a major issue in the branch leavel.
    -For such a large company there no real measurement of anything towards continues improvement process other then profit
    -Milwalkee Management are not open to new approches from employees who have had experiance and opportunities from other large succesful companies.
    -Corporate leadership has a large number of employees that have only been with one company (JCI) for their careers and do not want to rock the boat to improve the culture.
    -Local branch cultures towards corporate JCI are very poor and branch managers are being used by the local unions which inturn efficting customer service with are long term global customers.
    Conculding that JCI is a company that it's leadership need to getout and communicate to their customers and seek the truth about themselfs.This is a first step to success is to truly know what your falts are...... but as Jack Nichelson said in one of his role " You can't handle the TRUTH!!!!!!!"

    I have been working at Johnson Controls full-time

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for growth, great benefits. While I can't speak for the whole company, my branch is dedicated to employing quality people, so my coworkers are great. A very "family" feel.

    Cons

    Often times stressful and long hours are sometimes required. Be prepared for crises to pop up (it IS the construction industry). Not many clear career paths if you don't have a background or interest in engineering. Not much flexibility with hours or telecommuting.

    Advice to Management

    Emphasize career options for non-engineers
