    Pros

    Reputation of consistently delivering on customer expectations. Often hear from customers that JCI are great to deal with.

    Cons

    Australia business is very conservative and traditionally have taken very little risk in emerging markets, pefer instead to follow trends as opposed to being the market leaders they are well positioned to be. Do not leverage extensive global expertise very well. Geographical structure creates challenges to service large national and multinational customers.

    Advice to Management

    Business revamp to better suit customer changing needs by adding value and providing solutions to their business challenges. Products focus and transactional mentality needs to change to reposition JCI in the marketplace as a service and solutions provider

    Pros

    Great benefits, fair pay. Most co-workers are highly motivated and smart Get their work done. Locations was central to most things which was nice.

    Cons

    Large company, so not alot of face time with the higher-ups. If you want to make a change, it first needs to go through the management channels, which takes a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Work on communicating upcoming changes within the company. It's nice to have a sense of what is on the horizon instead of hearing things last minute or from other departments.
