Solid company - but don't expect much
Systems Engineer / Architect (Current Employee), MilwaukeeOctober 28, 2014
Pros: consistent. decent pay
Cons: poor leadership. zero chance to move up or even laterally.
JCI will probably be around for a long time. But IT will slowly move to outside resources. No room for advancement.

Good life, for the non-family man
Machine Operator (Former Employee), Holland, MIOctober 23, 2014
Pros: pay.
Cons: dirty, little man stepped on
Working 3rd anywhere is rough, but going in new to a company where everyone else has been 20+ years, makes it even harder.

Management is awesome here, VERY communicative.

But the company had a fall-out (got sold) a while back, and all the employees took a hit and are still hurt/angry about it. and that shows.

The warehouse is FILTHY. If you care – more... about your lungs, need not apply. There is plastic shredded in the air all around, and cleaning is LAST on the priority list. – less

Selling Out for Cheaper Labor from India
Building Automation Systems Technician (Former Employee), Lynnfield, MAOctober 23, 2014
Cons: typical corp
Learned a lot about how corrupt big companies can be and why they sub contract and hire cheaper labor from overseas just so they can make their numbers every month and brag on how much they made for the stock holders, while laying off their subs when ever they want and placing all their workers on salary only to work them to fall asleep on the job. – more... Overall I would never work for this company again. Sell outs – less

High School Atmosphere
Seat Assembler (Current Employee), Sycamore, ILOctober 22, 2014
Pros: pay
Cons: evertyhing else
Everyone is for self. Supervisors are trying their best not to get fired. They try to find a way to blame production workers for anything that goes wrong to keep management off of their backs. No one listens to anyone. Management makes drastic changes without consulting with the people who are actually doing the work and just make things harder. The – more... day starts with a very brief shift meeting about how terrible we were the day before and what we need to do to improve.
Each shift does ergo stretches before they begin and then everyone goes to assigned jobs. They rotate every hour to different jobs and there are about 5 or 6 jobs per rotation. The production members are expected to be robotic slaves who never mess up. – less

This company has been good to work for, they have done nothing to me personally. It is a successful corporate company that is good at making money.
Warehouse Manager (Current Employee), Holland, MIOctober 22, 2014
I do not have issues with JCI as a whole. Its a good successful very profitable company with good benefits and a good track record. The reasons I am looking for a job have to do with the company making moves to become profitable. About a year ago they decided to break off our service team into a seperate division called GWS. About a month ago they announced – more... publicly that they are going to divest our part of the company. That means 1800 employees are going to be sold to an undisclosed company, at least as many as the buyer wants to keep. I run a specialized program called furniture recovery and it is a rare bird in the industry. Meaning that it is unlikely another company will see the value in recycling furniture because of the cost to run the program. It is my belief that my part of the team will not make it through the sale. I have great references within JCI, there is no personal issues with me as an employee, it just appears that my position will no longer make sense. – less

Good place to work, met a lot of good people here
Commissioning Technician (Former Employee), Houston, TXOctober 20, 2014
Pros: work truck, gas card, tools
Cons: healthcare, problems that trickle down to the field level.
At work I would be in Classrooms, Hospital rooms, Mechanical rooms, Office space, anywhere there were HVAC systems. It was my job to make the temperature in these areas comfortable. Really enjoyed working with my co-workers, we were diverse, different talent levels working together for one common goal, Success. Hardest part of my job was navigating – more... through some of the software in complicated programs, Best part of my job was meeting so many wonderful people on day to day basis, both workers and customers. – less

While at Johnson Controls
Labor Accounting Representative (Current Employee), Milwaukee, WIOctober 14, 2014
Pros: friendly co-workers & associates

I assisted in processing the monthly union remittance reports for roughly 300 U.S unions, while also updating fringe & wage rates as necessary per the unions collective bargaining agreements.

I have constant – more... & regular interaction with our clients with answering roughly 800 phone calls and emails per month to answer questions regarding hours entered on employees time sheets, adjustments needing to be made to them, and other tax & deduction related inquiries. – less
