      Pros

      Lucrative if you are willing to work hard. Some team members are the best in the industry. Opportunity to be entrepreneurial. A lot of work time flexibility. Some products are top of class. Great brand name in the industry. A HUGE line card.

      Cons

      Leadership is drastically different depending on location. Some branches are very poorly managed and that shows up in their market penetration. Some products are not high quality (RTUs and some controls components). A lot of corporate layers and some big company headaches.

      Pros

      JCI provides many avenues for career growth opportunities. Training is exceptional.

      Cons

      JCI and most publicly held companies are very demanding of your time and expect significant investment in personal time to serve the needs of the company and its shareholders.

      Offer great training opportunities. Ability to learn different parts of the business is endless. Strong benefits: company car (all expenses covered with monthly fee), company credit card (customer entertainment). Team environment where people cared to help you out when needed

      Cons

      Hard to implement change, “good ol’ boy” network is strong within, very hard to bend for customers, they throw you into the fire immediately

      Pros

      Benefits and pay are competitive. They really try to promote philanthropy. They also really try to keep the organization productive and healthy.

      Cons

      Size can sometimes result in decisions that seem 'one size fits all'.
