    Pros

    Diverse, Great Lunch, and Wonderful Place.

    Cons

    Low Pay and Too Much Turn Over.

    Advice to Management

    The Turnover Needs To Be Addressed. When getting rid of FT workers and bring on contractors in their place is not good for moral.

    I worked at Johnson Controls as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Was given great projects where I was able to make a positive contribution to the engineering team that I was assigned to.
    - Interdisciplinary projects consisted of collaborating with different kinds of engineers as well as with the upper management.
    - Manager was transparent and laid down what I had to do, while helping me stay on track.
    - Great support from my mentors and clear guidance
    - Pretty laid back management, as long as you get your work done
    - Overall pretty cool place to work and gain experience

    Cons

    - Although the projects I was assigned were great, at times I felt I could've been doing something more interesting/exciting. Other than that, nothing much to say.

    Advice to Management

    - Perhaps think about helping out of state interns a little more with finding housing.
    - Other than that, great job with the internship program!

    CEO needs to be more of a role model. His extreme success in business is respectful, but he isn't a very good person out of work.

    Pros

    Lots of little benefits and perks the company gives to its interns to make summer fun. We got free summerfest tickets, museum passes, and social gatherings. There was a gym in our building with free classes available to all of the employees.

    Cons

    I think depending on which team you worked under, some people did not get a lot of work. A lot of times interns sometimes just sat around waiting for orders.
