    Good Pay, 401K match.

    Treat your employees like you value their contributions. Treat them equally like you train them to do with your modules and ethics preaching. Stop showing favoritism. Get rid of the old boys club and the CalAir Mentality.

    I worked at Johnson Controls full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    At one time, it was a good company to work for. No longer

    Cons

    In following with the company CEO and his ethics issues, (investigated by his own board of directors) the HR department, as well, lacks in their ability to follow the ethical practice of working for the employees. Their only concern is the "image" & "spin" to protect the CEO, not the employee. Their processes of displaying a good corporate image is in total disrepair. Please read about the company CEO before deciding to work for this company.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are your asset. Learn to use employees for the reasons you hired them not as cannon fodder to protect your broken corporate image. Your CEO portrays a very poor corporate image of values and culture. A man of poor ethics and NO moral values. Don’t you think it is time to re-evaluate how he reflects on the company.

    Pros

    Opportunity for advancement, nice coworkers and management, decent pay

    Cons

    write ups, drama, dirty work stations usually shared by other employees

    Advice to Management

    focus less on trying to punish employees and more on trying to keep them from quitting. Without us you wouldn't have the customers you have.
