    I worked at Johnson Controls (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great training opportunities, excellent salary, good people, superior resources. It's an interesting opportunity working for a aggressively progressive manufacturer like Johnson Controls.

    Cons

    Lots of pressure. This is This is not a place out position where you can create or be creative. Johnson Controls is a very structured company. They have all their systems and process in place. You need to operate within the box.

    Advice to Management

    We need to be more high touch, from corporate to the branch level, beyond the branch manager so that we understand the challenges and can better support growth and stability.

    Pros

    Down to earth people who are always willing to help as long as you put in the work. They treat their employees very well

    Cons

    The onboarding process is quite extensive. Not all crucial information is disclosed in the contract either. HR did answered every question to the full extent with honesty even providing some additional tips.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to organize more cross team meetings because communication is lacking across teams many times. This decreases productivity.

    there are to many chiefs and not enough Indians, and they plan to change things with a six sigma lean flow and you cant do that a whole lot with research and development.

    Advice to Management

    keep on keeping on. the management is good but they tend to micromanage things a bit to much, but other than that its good.
