    I have been working at Johnson Controls full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, free coffee and once a year BBQ & corn roast. In leap years maybe ice creams.

    Cons

    Where to start. In more than a decade they delayed 3 times the annual merit increases to 18 months. They put you to learn you jobs (for what you never applied or hired) and giving you nothing more. There are no compensations based on merit only on other unknown criteria.

    Advice to Management

    Try to know your people and see what are their quantities and their interests. This could help you and the company in the long run.
