Johnson Controls is a great place to work, grow and advance, if you’re up to the challenge. I was surrounded by great people with a wealth of knowledge.
Pros
Great working environment
Cons
Many business responsibilities placed directly on you.

Horrible management that doesn’t care about you as a technician unless your in the coveted inner circle of good ole boys! Impossible environment to work in. They don’t care about their techs. Steer clear!

I would have loved to have a life long career with this company, unfortunately they feel like the management is strong and point fingers at there technicians when repairs aren't being made after the said technicians have constantly email documented issues to management. The company uses the union as a loop hole to get away with issues in regards to pay, benefits, and vacation. Your expected to drop your life to provide assistance to emergency calls over the weekend even when you are not on call. They have lost a lot of there business due to poor management and leadership that is supposed to provide proper service to there customers and can not seem to see any of the problems after there employees communicate issues to them on a day to day basis.
Pros
none
Cons
everything

If you're single with no family or friends and have nothing to miss while working 50+ hours a week. This is the job for you. If you have a family, friends, any kind of personal life, and realize you work to live not live to work than this is not a place for you.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Heat, smell, no work/life balance

Johnson has since sold this department to CBRE. Management was very understanding and allowed much room for freedom. High expectation of personal responsibility,

Working here was wonderful. The office had a great dynamic and the technicians were knowledgeable and friendly. They also did a wonderful job of making sure all employees had the freedom to purchase needed tools and parts when needed with a minimum of hassle.
Pros
Great Management
Cons
None I can think of

Training available if approved by your immediate supervisor. don't get on the wrong side of them or its to the back of the line with you. Too many bosses, those same bosses have so little working experience in the trade or even controls work. several managers, several area foreman, areas not sharing with others when times are slow. Sales in the service department simply don't exist, you can't send a sales person who couldn't pick out a chiller in a mechanical room to meet with a customer about their mechanical needs.
Pros
fellow mechanics
Cons
big company problems

Johnson Contols is the most mismanaged company I ever had the displeasure to work for! Beware any job posting stating "Looking for an overhead and pedestrial door mechanic" This job is a nightmare! You are forced to work with a drug abuser with a serious attitude problem. He has to be the dumbest person I ever met in my life and his supervisor isn't much better. They welcome workplace harassment and teamwork doesn't exist!Be warned STAY AWAY!!
Cons
everything!

Johnson Controls is by far the single worst place I ever worked. My Managers have their little pets who were more than welcome to break all the rules and do what ever they felt like even harassing fellow employees.Human Resource is non exsistant and who make and break their own rules. Integrity means nothing to these people the managers lie constantly to cover their own rear ends. A few employees are on drugs and this is welcomed at Johnson Controls. Hard workers are spat upon and treated like second class losers and driven out of the company, while the female managers are in love with the male porters it is a sick thing to witness. The company is a joke they lie cheat and steal no one in their right mind should ever work for or hire Johnson Controls anywhere in the world. Voted the worst company ever!
Pros
non
Cons
everything! its a horror movie gone wild!
