    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.

    Good Benefits
    Fitness Center
    Cafeteria(slightly subsidized)

    Cons

    Recently taken over from Tyco when JCI purchased
    Working facility is in a state of flux
    JCI employees out of Boca area treat Boca employees as if their opinion is irrelevant which could be an issue

    Advice to Management

    The Legacy JCI employees need to treat Legacy Tyco employees with a little bit more respect as befitting their experience, vs. always the JCI way, without understanding how the business actually works.

    Pros

    Training is encouraged, good benefit package, and branch offices are supportive
