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

    Pros

    Ability to work independently. Manage your own schedule/business/travel. The industry is loaded with long time employees. Business owners/customers for this role are down to earth and very easy to talk with.

    Cons

    Training for new products is minimal and not executed well. Development of valuable product training to the sales team is critical. Employees will not speak out to push better training.

    Advice to Management

    No

    Pros

    Great People and positive trend

    Cons

    Too many chiefs with different objectives.

    Advice to Management

    Decentralize, but standardize. Stop trying to control everything in Milwaukee and just standardize your system (SAP). Every plant manufacture's processes are the same so stop customizing the system to suit one Plant Manager's needs. Say "see BI".
