poor management and big turnover
Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) –  Port Arthur, TXDecember 13, 2018
Johnson controls Port Arthur Texas has large management turnover issues due to heavy workloads and jobs always being threatened by corporate office. When management people leave most of them resigning due to heavy workloads and jobs always being threatened and eventually terminated if you don't leave on their own.The work load when someone leaves just gets passed onto the remaining employees and jobs never filled to the point that people are all overworked and constantly stressed out . The company is run in total disorganization and management is constantly having meeting , but still never gets things right.The original company was bought out over 4 years ago and people still don't know how company benefits work or how to train new employees because nobody knows how to do certain jobs due to massive turnover. The employees have no HR dept. to help set them up to do there so employees are forced to work with no emails, computer access to do you job, so many employees are forced to violate company policies and use former employees log on credentials to try to do the many jobs they are being asked to do. The company is big on the good ole boy system and even if you do a good job they find a way to run you off. They overload you with so much work and you always have 4 different people that aren't even you boss telling you 4 different answers and giving you things to do and pay increases are very rare.
Pros
Full benefits, starting pay
Cons
poor management, overworked stressed out employees, no room for advancement, no raises

Horrible culture and manager
SENIOR IT BUSINESS CONSULTANT (Current Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIDecember 11, 2018
The JCI management culture is very top down. They don't value or respect their employees or contractors. The give them impossible deadlines that set them up for failure. For example, a project team will analyze and plan out a project. They will present the scope, budget and timeline to leadership who will demand they add scope and cut the budget and timeline in half or more. The project team accepts the terms knowing very well that it will be the quality of the project that suffers. Then people kill themselves to try to make the timeline but in the end it usually takes longer and costs more money than originally planned. There are a lot of power struggles and waste at that company. It's truly who you know not what you know or how capable you are.

Account Executive Owner Direct (Current Employee) –  NHDecember 10, 2018
Johnson Controls compensates employees very well however the company moves to slow when decisions need to be made to satisfy the customer. Company also raises sales quota to a point where the rep can no longer meet the target.
Pros
Salary
Cons
Red Tape

Fire Inspector II (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILDecember 7, 2018
Not much room for advancement at my time of employment. Great benefits, company vehicle, sense of community and a good work to life ratio. Great company to work for overall, just was not the right fit for me in my season of life.

This company has NO support. The company has no direction and is the worst company ever. If you are looking for a great company this is not it . Worst quality of life, worst management, worst HR, and very stressful. The Florence SC site has NO direction they change as they see fit.

Manufacturing Operations supervisor (Former Employee) –  Wichita, KSDecember 1, 2018
Upper management struggle to understand and help fix road clocks of the lines. The quality of hourly employees you get as a supervisor makes it hard to hit aop and there is a very high turn over rate.

Pros
big company, a lot of learning and growing opportunities
Cons
cutting corners internally and externally to meet Wall Street expectations

Plant too small for movement
Associate (Former Employee) –  Georgetown, KYNovember 30, 2018
There is little room for movement due to the size of the staff. If you want a temporary job then this would be ok. If you are looking for a place to stay, keep looking.
