Customer support - alarm responder/dispatcher (Former Employee) –  Aurora, COMarch 16, 2019
once an alarm comes in trouble shoot what it is and your next steps to take. Johnson Controls gave me the training and insight on dispatching. The management there really helps you out if you need help and trying to help you move forward to the next step in your career.

Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Kernersville, NCMarch 15, 2019
Don't work here
Bad union environment. Do not recommend this company to anyone looking for a secure future. They have a culture where everyone's job is easily replaceable.

Disconnected Management
Commercial Sales Rep Johnson Controls (Former Employee) –  MinnesotaMarch 14, 2019
Upper management is totally disconnected with what sales people deal with on a ground level. Sales quotas are not in line with realistic with the current local market competition . They continually hire managers and sales people from outside the industry leading to poor training thus leading to high employee turnover. The software systems are based on archaic DOS platforms. Great exposure to commercial projects but poor management overall. This company has gotten so big it trips all over itself with all the systems and internal policies in place. There are layers of management approval just to get a quote in front of a customer. JCI has a vision of the more proposals you pump out the higher close ratio will be. That is a small business model that does not work for the commercial world. Commercial proposals can easily take 2 plus hours to complete that frequently need a 2nd set of eyes to review especially if you do not have the correct part numbers. 24 proposals monthly are required. An acceptable close ratio is approx 20%. I would rather put in 10 quality proposals with a 60%-70% close ratio than 20% on 24 proposals. The company car is cool but they only tell you after being hired that you have to pay about $190 monthly for the unlimited mileage and personal use. So if you already have a car payment, guess what, you will have another one.
Pros
Flexible Schedule
Cons
Management at every level is disconnected from the local marketplace.

Good place to work, but good luck if you're a contingent anywhere BUT production
Quality Assurance Inspector (Current Employee) –  Marinette, WIMarch 13, 2019
I work as a contingent in QA. I have been here over 11 months and not hired on yet. I have been given numerous excuses, reasons, and cop-outs as to why I have not been hired on.
My immediate supervisor is cool, but our Department head is overstretched and needs more people to help him. Big Brass in Milwaukee and else where continue to push us to do more with less.

The company was going to get behind the local drug court program, but decided it was not "cost effective", but they will hire people with a record. Lots of long hours, and you are expected to work 6 days a week if mandated. They don't care if you got kids or whatever. Sickness/illness they are not so fussy about as long as you have a doctor's note.
Pros
Changing the work culture, High performance teams, wellness program
Cons
High insurance cost, not quick to hire temps/contingents, too much overtime

Stressful and Overworked
Quality Engineer (Former Employee) –  Florence, SCMarch 11, 2019
Management is constantly being fired / resignations etc. No stability at the Florence DC plant. Not enough Quality Engineers to handle the amount of work so expect to work weekends, long days and holidays. Trying to get improvements in the plant is impossible.
Pros
Pay is good
Cons
Everything else

Really not a bad place to work but needs lots of improvements.
Anonymous (Current Employee) –  Albany, MO 64402March 9, 2019
Normal working schedule is 8 hours and regular overtime. If overtime is scheduled it will be scheduled by working 10 hour days Tuesday through Friday with the potential of working 6-8 hour Saturdays. Can only work 3 Saturdays in a row during winter and 2 during the summer.

There is little or no standardized training for anyone coming into the plant no matter the title or position. The company has been taking steps to make this better and we are seeing improvements frequently.

There has been some changes in management so the working relationship between the production floor and management is really getting better.

The hardest part of the job is being flexible because you may not be doing the same job all week especially if others areas are ahead or behind.

The most enjoyable part of the job is all the people that work here.
Pros
Continiously Improving to make things better for everyone
Cons
Training, Role Clarity, Communication

Highly Intelligent Co-workers
Contingent Worker (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIMarch 5, 2019
Johnson Controls has a corporate culture that's very competitive and forward-thinking in terms of it's technology products and business solutions. I like working with incredibly intelligent people who are working together to shape tour future. Most of my co-workers are leaders in their respective fields so any all teams tend to challenge each other to innovate and improve. The company is also extremely large so there are a lot of different career opportunities to pursue.
Pros

Cons
Working across multiple time zones, not enough time off to travel

Horrible work environment.
DISPATCH OPERATOR (Former Employee) –  Aurora, COMarch 4, 2019
In my career I have NEVER found a more disgusting place to work.
I cannot speak for every call center facility Regarding the company, but the one I was employed at was Absolutely disgusting.

There were constant complaints of bug infestation, more commonly Cockroach and lice. All of which were ignored until a call was made to the Health Department. At which point the company was forced to hire a cleaning crew, the extend of which was a steam clean.

There is no assigned desk, so it is first come first serve. This would not be an issue save for the fact that MANY other employees were incontinent, meaning MANY of the chairs were stained. See above compliant for why that was an issue.
Pros
None
Cons
Poor management, poor facility.
