    A company who's work culture fails to meet advertised values.

    Pros

    This is a conservative company that will be around for a long time to come. They have some brilliant marketing people.

    Cons

    You will be put in one situation after another where the company fails to deliver as promised and the employee is left holding the bag.

    Pros

    -Great tools for the field, very adaptive and flexible to program ( especially the mstp system). -Current leadership is supportive and quick assist as long as you communicate properly and update regularly.
    -Decent pay with LOTS of OT if you are willing/able.

    Cons

    -PMs are decent but slow to respond many times.
    -Tools,support,and documentation is not always provided to technicians as it should be. Many times you fulfill multiple rolls, especially as a technician.
    -Depending on PM ( more so LSS's) the manager may not be knowledgeable of the system OR project due to their own overly large work load. (I can think of two immediately, out of 5 LSS's)
    -Technicians are not paid enough to keep them long especially if they are knowledgeable, hardworking, and honest. JCI infrastructure just does not support large or quick raises. So a capable employee is left to wait for an opening in a more advanced position, or work alot of OT, to increase their pay by any substantial amount. (Average system tech pay = around 50k at JCI. Elsewhere experienced controls technicians can make 68-90k. )
    -Technicians are held accountable for management screw ups by customers, and are usually the face of good customer reviews, although PM and LSS are only recognized on successful projects.
    -Training is done on your own time and not paid for typically.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Pay for technician training.
    -Support field techs more.
    -Increase pay scale for higher level technicians ( you cant keep good people otherwise, even if they actually like the company).
    -Allow smoother role transition (I.E- ST -> SD ->SE, LSS -> SS -> PM) instead of forcing good employees to wait for position handouts.
