No opinion of CEO

Pros

Large stable company. Profitable and financially well run.

Cons

Despite being a large company (130,000 employees) the company is split into 3 divisions with numerous sub-divisions. Collaboration and synergy between the sub-divisons is derisable. Very little integration of systems and processes so it can feel you are working for different companies. Senior management tend to be imported from the US - to do Europe - and focus on short-term cost cutting to boost profits rather than sustainable sales growth. The company is in the right space but is seriously underperforming despite the opportunities.

Advice to Management

Develop and stick to strategies that will grow the company not kill it.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Like most large companies with a sales force - Work ethic and travel are a must. However, many of their solutions are easy to sell with the right knowledge and skills.

    Cons

    Live and die by the spreadsheet. Johnson Controls talks about account management, but does not practice in any way. They sell a solution to a customer and walk away.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what the sales force is asking for - tools and resources
