Service Representative II (Former Employee), Gaithersburg, MD – July 5, 2013
Pros: good coworkers
Cons: the project manager
JCI is great company for the most part, I enjoyed my work. Hours were long but the results satisfying for the most part. Would have been better if management could have figured out which direction they wanted to go in. Consistently changed work specifications and had his favorites who did no wrong. If you weren't the "clique" your job security was minimal.
Mechanical Service Journeyman (Chiller Technician) (Former Employee), Fayetteville, NC – February 24, 2014
Pros: great pay and benifits
Cons: not a good working environment. no sense of team
I worked for them for 6 months. When I was hired on plenty of work was available but it dwindled due to poor choices from sales team and management causing the loss the customer base. I was laid off just before Christmas. Since I was the last hired I was the first to go. Before I started I had heard rumors of them doing this kind of thing but I didn't – more... believe it.
Sr. Project Manager (Former Employee), 29 Palms, CA – February 24, 2014
Pros: project longivity
Cons: lack of customer funds to continue
I was on a field assignment at the MCAGCC, 29 Palms, CA where I was given the opportunity to manage over $140M of energy savings and Marine comfort projects. My JCFS on-site staff & c-workers were top of the line in every aspect. The most difficult part of the job was establishing a team of subcontracting partners, which once developed made the job – more... the most pleasurable. – less
Sales (Current Employee), Milwaukee, WI – February 22, 2014
Pros: good salary, great place to work if you're in the top 10% of sales people
Cons: no real internal relationships, all about the numbers
Many levels of upper management, sometimes telling you to do things different ways. They are all about the numbers and making stock holders happy. I hear more customer complaints about how jobs are performed or various aspects of the general terms of contracts. Sometimes its hard to do business with a company so large and in turn, its hard to work for – more... a company so large. – less

Pros: free lunches sometimes
Cons: short breaks
I learned how to build KIA motor car seats, typical day of work would be standing on the line making sure the line keeps moving without any stops or gaps. The hardest part of the job to me would be picking up someone else's slack. The most enjoyable part about the job was meeting different people.

Parts Sales - Customer Service (Former Employee), Louisville, KY – February 11, 2014
Johnson Controls is a very good company. The most enjoyable part of my job is I was allowed to grow my territory and not be micro managed. I learned how to spec out valves, how to help customers decide on which building automation parts would best fit the application they had. I really enjoyed my position and was sad when the position was eliminated.
