Most of management spend their time asking their team to help them as they do not know the answer themselves. Promotion within the company is near none existent and if you do move department please do not expect a pay increase. Also you are more likely to get paid more working for a smaller company, which is possibly why staff turnover is very high. In the beginning it may seem like the company cares about your wellbeing, but in fact they do not. They care about work and if you are unable to work for whatever reason please do not expect sick pay it won't happen.
Pros
Colleagues are great people.
Cons
No one seems to do their job correctly.

Do it to them before they do it to you. Absolutely no thanks for working out of hours, or away from home in dangerous locations.
Also unless working on one of key products forget any chance of one to ones with management or career training.

Half the year you are put on travel bans and expense cuts but still expected to meet targets.

The higher up the ladder you get, the more cliquey management becomes.
Pros
Work from home
Cons
Need to have a face that fits

Home based office work allows for a relaxed environment ,as it is voids of office politics and allows one to focus on the tasks at hand.Working from home been a valuable tool during this global pandemic Working from home teaches self discipline.

Johnson Controls expect people to show their worth. Not a place to work if you want to skive. Quite a lot of staff turn over. If you can handle the pace, its a good environment.

The Letchworth site is run by a bully who does not listen to anyones opinions. This means nobody really bothers to raise potential problems as they at best ignored, and at worst they become a target for false accusations. The salary is poor and there is very little room for career advancement. Higher management is aware but does literally nothing to intervene, meaning the company loses many useful people.

Excellent quality inspection, well organized
Excellent quality inspection experience

Excellent management.

Excellent workplace culture.

The hardest part is when you leave Johson Controls. I love to work for them.

Everything at Johson Controls is enjoyable. It is a well-organized Engineering company.

Workers at Jonson Controls are very educated, open-minded and very friendly.

Not a very nice place to work. Was glad to leave. A lot of workplace bullying takes place. Management repeatedly abused powers to manipulate the workers.

I enjoyed the job I was doing in Export and worked mainly on my own, there was 2/3 people who worked in the warehouse picking and packing export warehouse orders. We all worked well together and communication was good between us.
I did however notice that the general moral in the place was low and management were not great in sharing information on changes/decisions. A lot of staff had been there a long time and where also set in their ways.

Not a dynamic team and work place. Narrow minded individuals with little or no grasp on reality. Humourless yet diligent they work for long periods of time achieving very little.

Good team spirit in a fast paced environment offering new challenges everyday.
Full support always available from college's through the occasional and more difficult times.

Rewarding not from just the business side but also in welcoming new college's and making of new friendship's.

My shift was the "5-day shift rotation pattern", which is the (mostly) daytime only shift pattern, which I believe is roughly defined as being any given 9 hour period somewhere between 7 AM and 7 PM. On this shift pattern, it is a 40 hour week which includes working 5 days a week total (sometimes including weekends). A typical day entails answering roughly 200 phone calls, give-or-take and dependent on your confidence, skill, and other sundry factors. This includes two 10 minute breaks and a 1-hour lunch break that can be no more than 4 hours apart, so this essentially means you're working day is 7 hours 40 minutes long in total.

What I learned was how to use service booking software and alarm monitoring software. The software that's used for booking engineer visits is called SMS (Service Management System) which is a rather outdated, and occasionally slow, keyboard-only program that will most likely take at least 1 month to get used to using to the point of any reasonable confidence, at least in my experience. For the first month, it will likely be the case that you will be taking calls and panicking on getting the right thing done on this software as it is a bit of a learning curve. I will advise you to try not to worry (although I'm aware this can be easier said than done), try to be professionally assertive on the phone. Should the customer begin to get impatient, simply explain that you're new and still learning. I found that it genuinely DOES help to do this. The most common uses on SMS are booking engineers and technicians for a variety of purposes (breakdowns and
