    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Johnson Controls full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    As I worked for a global brand Tyco/Johnson Controls provided great opportunities to travel and see the world to visit customers as a key part of my role. I made many friends across the organization throughout the years and the welcoming hospitality when visiting other sites was always appreciated.

    Cons

    It was a challenging time to be part of the organization during the merger between Tyco & Johnson Controls. There was a considerable lack of investment in the brand that I worked for at Tyco/Johnson Controls, both in people development and headcount. This led to a lot of folks double-jobbing and taking on more responsibilities which ultimately left them them too thin on the ground to make any tangible impact. Coupled with a lack of leadership and strategy at the VP & director level of the organization it was hard to compete against the market during this time. There was also a lack of understanding about Product Management throughout the company and a lack of senior leadership supporting this function. In this sales led business, revenue was prioritized time and again to deliver for shareholders in the short term, at the detriment of the product offering and customer satisfaction.
