Fast paced environment with unlimited learning protential
Tyco Technical Consultant DSC (Current Employee) –  95 Bridgeland Ave, Toronto, Ontario, M6A 1Z526 November 2017
In a call centre environment I evaluate and respond to authorized security technician queries and provide technical solutions in a timely, friendly and professional manner. Management is always available willing to respond to any questions or concerns. The workplace is face paced and sometimes stressful as we are supporting life saving products and services. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to provide quality support and helping other technicians out in the field.

corporate restructing
Industrial Service Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB8 November 2017
JCI could be a great place to work if you don't get flushed out in their restructuring program. every 4 years or so about 15% of the global work force loose their job. The share holders seem more important than employees

Big disconnect between words and action
Quality Engineer (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON25 October 2017
There were lots of plans and talk of change but no action. Managers said one thing and did another.
Managers spent much time trying to prove they could do the job they wanted and neglected their current position. This was the culture the Plant Manger encouraged.

Opportunity for advancement is outstanding.
Deficiency Sales (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB12 September 2017
A typical day includes quoting each deficiency that the fire alarm and sprinkler inspectors note. I have learned from this role that follow-up is important to have success with sales. Management is at different levels within the company. The workplace culture is very easygoing with many different generations. The hardest part of the job is repetitiveness. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing you have helped people to stay safe.
Pros
Amazing Benefits

nuance I work for the montreal CMC- if you are about money it's ok but the management has a culture of bullying that is unappealing
Emergency Dispatch (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC7 September 2017
Management has a culture of bullying which hides behinds corporate.
Current manager has threatened to attack an employee in front of witness, other current manager has harassed more than a few employees. This place is great if you just want money and are an in and out type of person.
Pros
overtime
Cons
bully culture/no advancement

Branch Install Mgr/Major Projects Project Mgr (Former Employee) –  Canada23 August 2017
Though a very large corporation, Johnson Controls has an atmosphere of being a smaller operation. Everyone I interacted with at Johnson Controls internally, whether from our local Edmonton branch or from one of our international support branches, was welcoming, thoughtful and knowledgeable in their field.

Co-workers are great. Management towing the line till retirement and don't care much
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON10 April 2017

Pros
Great co-workers
Cons
below standard benefits
