    I have been working at Johnson Controls full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are mostly intelligent, ethical, and interesting. The pace and workload are generally reasonable. My manager pays a lot of attention to people development, and to building coalitions across organizational boundaries.

    Cons

    The multipley-matrixed organization structure is hard to navigate, the Automotive Experience group is rather a poor stepchild within the larger corporate world, and the AE management focus is almost completely in terms of meeting monthly and quarterly financials. Pay scale is average or below for the industry; benefits also are average at best.

    Advice to Management

    Consider how the organization structural churn is inhibiting getting any real work done.
