    Pros

    Good coworkers and stable.
    Good name in industry and they have the resources to develop new products.

    Stick to your core values, not only on product offering but also on your core sales channels, and core competencies on manufacturing capability.

    Pros

    Community of people, lots of social opportunities for networking, quiet and respectful office professionals. The President and the Human Resources team at the time of my employment was approachable and super understanding. I hope it remains the same today.

    Sometimes too quiet. Gives you time to think about other non-work related stuff.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let employees take advantage!

    Company has lot of potential and history

    Cons

    After getting sold and a new management took over, things have changed for worst and company sr management have no power to defend and protect the interest in front of the new management.

    Understand H&C culture, heard the entire company got sold out once again. Perhaps Johnson Controls will bring back the glory
