    I worked at Johnson Controls full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company Car - Salary - Office space and supplies
    Denver training is top notch.
    Product and services are needed. You are always busy building quotes or making new opportunists.

    Cons

    The new brand for Security is Johnson Controls. This is a weak brand in a crowded space. You get next to no leads. Your cold calling leads to people asking "who did you say you were with again?". Sales process can take 10 hours to build a single job, using 90s software. Jobs are usually outbid by 90% of competition. Your main product lineup is company owned equipment. Competition offers full suite of products. On the job training is weak due to experienced reps guarding their time and knowledge to protect their own sales. Leadership from top to bottom is quite. Literally, nobody communicates. Email is slight in this company. Product reps struggle to train due to lack of buy in from leadership. So support suffers.

    I gave good time to make this position work. I was loyal and positive. I kept waiting for a positive to present itself. One never did. If you are not in the industry of building security then stay away. Other companies are not likely better. Mergers and acquisition have eroded this space. Johnson Controls will likely sell away the Tyco employees stealing their company owned products. More drama in the industry.

    Lastly, and import, the benefits are terrible. 24B a year and no company support with health care. You will get better benefits in many companies. Know you are sacrificing income because your benefits will cost so much to actually use.

    Advice to Management

    IBM runs commercials during sporting events. Not so soccer moms will call, but so C Level execs can see the brand and make decisions and take action. ADT is a known brand, Johnson Controls is not. Invest in some branding and allow your people to be better received.
