    I have been working at Johnson Controls full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Hours and pay are very fair, especially considering the work and the environment. Very quick to learn and easy to progress for a first full time job.

    Cons

    Upper management/big wigs are pretty out of touch and seem to lag a few months behind what is needed at the customer facing levels. Retention time for new employees is pretty poor, maybe 40-50% of new classes (usually 4-8) actually stay through training.

    Advice to Management

    Be more in touch and aware that your customers should be the #1 priority, when 10% of the customer calling in are upset about 10-15 minute wait times to get a person it's a pretty bad situation. Then when you speak to them and they're in the wrong department, you have to transfer them, and sometimes can go from annoyed to irate quickly and it causes more problems than it's worth.

    Pros

    They have a lot of company events when economy is good.

    Cons

    They used to say, no one stays for the pay. If high rages is an issue for you, look elsewhere. The pay is low to fair, but do not expect to do better than that. Also, it's a specialized industry. Skills are not transferrable. So If your not interested in doing this for the rest of your life. You need to look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you have training in place for your new engineers.
