    I have been working at Johnson Controls full-time (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

    Great Benefits and access to tools that allow you to be successful. As long as you are meeting your goals you are given the autonomy to manage your own business and sales efforts among your assigned accounts.

    Cons

    It seems like this company is driven by excessive micromanagement from corporate and regional managers, however, at the local level management will focus on minimizing road blocks to ensure success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less focus on old, internal process that adds no value to our clients.
