    I have been working at Johnson Controls full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Enjoying the work I do and the people I work with. I am a former Tyco SimplexGrinnell employee and being a part of this team has been satisfying from day one. Great pay, good benefits, computer based and classroom training, etc. Overtime is always offered and there are commissions you can earn as a field technician.

    Cons

    The workload can be too much at times and you have to learn when to say no. (Work Life Balance). Also, it is a massive company and it is easy for things to take long to happen because of the many channels requests must go through before they are executed. (For customers and for employees.)

    Advice to Management

    Remember your field staff faces the customer daily and has valuable input on ways to improve on the execution of goals and daily initiatives.

    The company provides all the necessary tools and resources to sue your job. Your available chances to advance your career are amazing.

    Cons

    The usual big corporation issues; takes time to get it help, decisions, too many meetings, which are easy to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking out for everyone on the team. Ensure that recognition is in a group setting, and continue doing so via certificates, plaques and bonuses.

    I worked at Johnson Controls full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Interesting work, regional and international opportunities

    Cons

    Management since 2013 has only been interested in stock price and cost cutting to bolster stock price. Not interested in product investment or innovation. Answer for most issues was to fire someone.

    Advice to Management

    Look at longer term performance and stability rather than chasing Wall Street ratings

    I worked at Johnson Controls full-time

    Pros

    Great place to learn about the automotive business

    Cons

    The budgeting and forecasting talent was always a weakness.

    Advice to Management

    Stop doing layoffs and paying bonuses in the same breath, a company of that size should have their budgets and forecasting under control.
