    I have been working at Johnson Controls full-time for more than 8 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    Flexible schedule for family. Safe, clean working environment. Employees taken care of. Employees get a bonus almost every year as long as the division had a good year.

    Cons

    Hard to move up in the company. Lots of changes in the company right now and that makes employees nervous about their future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know your employees and reward the hard workers. There are some people who don't seem to work as hard or care as much as others.
