Global organization with lots of interesting challenges
Senior Program Manager (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – October 30, 2016
The organization is currently going through a period of change that is absolutely necessary to bring it into the modern era. The culture is something that is changing as well with many people moving from positions that are not the right fit for them. There is a need to follow more strict processes. There is unfortunately issues with change management and a lack of accountability. The most difficult part of the job is trying to get consensus across the organization, it takes a lot of coordination and requires many meetings. The best part of the job is being able to get through the phase exists and show that you are bringing products to market.
MAINTENANCE MECHANIC B (Former Employee) – Florence, KY – January 13, 2017
JCI was an extremely rewarding company to work for and they took great care of their employees! They have spectacular insurance and benefits as well as pay and advancement opportunities!
The ONLY negative aspect of this position was the last minute "hold overs" of when you were expected to stay late (after shift hours) in order to complete a task but that wasn't an issue unless I had an appointment or obligation that was scheduled immediately after work.
All in all, Johnson Controls is one of those companies where everyday people (with or without a college education) can build a future and a life for themselves with the right amount of effort and hard work.
COSC Billing Rep (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – January 11, 2017
Typical day is pounding work out like a factory. Then you have linear minded management who presses for faster work. Also, you have audits continuously, you have to have almost flawless accuracy on everything. Don't slip up on production, if you do, you will be put on a PIP, a performance plan.
I was told to just press refresh continuously to get work and compete with 46 other people doing the same thing. Keep those numbers up.
In meetings if you debate or explain anything you get an email after the meeting about everything you talked about peppered with negative comments.
If you are looking at a job in what is called BRC COSC, a must stay away.
health plans, 401k match
debating life decisions the got you in this position.
Electronic Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – Holland, MI – September 7, 2016
Over all the local facility in Holland, MI is a decent place to work. Usually there is opportunity to work overtime, it used to be mandatory 12 hours; however management has changed how they account for their production and have encouraged a positive life/work balance by scheduling eight hour shifts. Good profit sharing plan, benefits for full coverage is very expensive.
A great place to learn, management gives quite a bit of latitude to learn and grow into your job.
A tendency from management to over use temporary employees.
Materials (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – November 30, 2016
Worse place I have ever worked! Zero work/life balance. Couldn't schedule vacations or get off for a funeral. Never any positive feedback, only what you do wrong. And apparently nobody does anything right. Everyone I spoke to was in fear of losing their job on a daily basis in the departments I had communication with. No Loyalty. Set-up to fail from the start.
Customer Service Agent (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – January 2, 2017
This company started off really great, however, they were understaffed and management was not supportive when the work load and stress levels were over compensated. The company would have been a better place if the hiring manager could do a better job at selecting the best honorable people.
Assembly Line Worker (Current Employee) – Sycamore, IL – December 8, 2016
My time at johnson controls was a very rewarding i got to spend most of my days with amazing people. I was able to learn time management skills and also how to become a more productive person in the workplace and also at home.
free lunches during holidays and also great healthcare benefits
Administrative Manager/COA I (Former Employee) – Honolulu, HI – October 17, 2016
Work was very busy and there was always something new to learn. Diverse working environment and pleasurable co-workers for the most part. Management could definitely use some tweaking or extra care given to communication techniques.
Pleasurable atmosphere, compensation and benefits are exceptional
Management needed to work on communication skills.
Accounts Receivable Coordinator (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – October 4, 2016
Worked days. Company is greatly influenced by Wall Street analyst advice. Management reduces US employment to take advantage of lower labor costs abroad sacrificing quality control for short term gains. Recent merger and inversion issues have a great impact on US jobs.
Good place learn from, and to gain experience from.
DAS Operator (Current Employee) – Sanger, CA – December 11, 2016
You work a full 8 hours a day. It's Monday - Friday, and you have weekends off. I learned how to operate heavy machinery, and the safety procedures that are there. My co-workers are easy and fun to work with. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the fiberglass. The most enjoyable part of this job is that it's fast paced.
Assembly Line Inspector (Former Employee) – Georgetown, KY – December 26, 2016
The pay compensation is good, with raises every 6 months. It is incredibly hard on your body, not your mind. Your hands will hurt, but eventually you build the muscle up, to where it doesn't hurt anymore.
Assembler (Former Employee) – West Point, GA – September 21, 2016
I enjoyed working in a fast paced work environment with my co-workers. The hardest part was being laid-off because I was with the company for three years. This job taught me about quality, assembly lines, working as a team to reach your goal.
Business Units are excellent to work with and leadership within the Building Efficiency group is excellent
Talent Acquisition Manager (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – June 15, 2016
Working with and supporting the business units is great. Stronger Corporate leadership is required, Work volumes are extremely high in Talent Acquisition and we continually are asked to do more with less tool and financial support. The team is excellent very strong technically and professionally they are the most enjoyable part of the job. There is a true lack of work/life balance as well as an inequity in the compensation packages.
