Former Employee - Marketing Manager says

"Work you like DOGS, Constant Worker Lay-Offs, NOOO Employee Loyalty, Lack of Upper Job Growth or Long-Term Job Security, Mid-Year and Year-End Performance Reviews! They force you to take furloughs, stop your merit salary increases and they only care about their stock price EBT!"

Current Employee - Sales says

"Everything, you are overworked, management is non existent or in another state, procedures change every week, you fight with your own company to get your jobs booked."

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"Toxic environment, caused by management"

Former Employee - Service Coordinator says

"Poor management, American jobs have been sent to Mexico and India. If you're a dedicated employee and do your job well, you are sure to be let go. The company keeps the slackers, the people who don't care about their job and the one's who never show up. If you are one of these people you will have a long career with this company."

Former Employee - Install Coordinator says

"Under paid, to much drama."

Former Employee - Inspector says

"Everything else sucks about this company"

Former Employee - Manager says

"CEO and other executive leaders"

Former Employee - Senior Manager says

"All about metrics & how the data looks vs. taking care of the employees & customers"

Current Employee - Management says

"Many...Corporate described as tinmen, 507 as scar crows, and the leadership as sea-gulls who lack the capability to balance value add direction and leadership. Slow to move on bottoms-up initiating ideas, and highly political."

Current Employee - Account Executive says

"The work environment is toxic. As a Sales Account Executive, they nickle and dime you, change compensation mid year. Senior management is non-existent. There is no accountability. Our region got a work rating score of 12 out of a hundred and the senior manager got a promotion!!!!"

Brazer/Assembler/lead (Current Employee) says

"No place for advancement, Pay not great, empty promises from management, no life-work balance, point system is flawed, supervisors don’t know what they’re doing, no proper training, hard workers aren’t acknowledged, a lot of misinformation about covid"

Several Positions (Former Employee) says

"Don’t take the job, your just a number to them.They expect you to travel to other offices but refuse to let you work from home.The company has a no tolerance for harassment but did nothing when a manager harassed me for a year before covid hit and I was laid off.NoneEverything you can imagine"

Emergency Dispatch Operator Customer Service (Current Employee) says

"This is not a job you want run find something else not a job you want bad management bad working conditions bad raises suck the canceled our 401 k contributions for this year"

HVAC/R Technician (Former Employee) says

"The managers are clueless. They don’t care about the employees and will throw you under the bus in a heartbeat. They don’t reach out to customers and aren’t helpful at all to the techs. They leave it completely up to the techs and admin staff to deal with angry clients. If they don’t like you, they will use “safety” to get rid of you. Union is weak. In short. this branch is the Cincinnati Bengals of the HVAC world. Don’t do it unless your stuck and even then watch your back.MehToo many to list"

Account Executive (Former Employee) says

"● Work-life balanceThey keep trying to do more with less people● Pay & benefitsCompany is always changing things.● Job security and advancementPromote people they know● ManagementThey are to expensive and only care about the numbers. They really have no idea what goes on at the local level. Have and will continue to lose good people● CulturePeople are overall very unhappy● OverallI transferred from Florida Virginia in January 2020. I had over 23 years combined between Tico which Johnson Controls purchased and now JCI. I relocated my family sold my house in Florida moved to Virginia and was let go along with about 50 other people. Treated poorly"

Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) says

"The Mainrenance manager and supervisor does not know how to manage. They do not have any leadership abilities what so ever. If you are a military veteran a good peace if advice for you would be to stay clear of any Johnson Controls plant.NoneTreatment of employees and military veterans"

"terrible place, revolving door, mechanics quit all the time, toxic, bad supervisors, bad managers, no team work, they dont have many guys left, they dont provide any training, no guidance, if you want to waste your time and deal with attitudes come herenot muchwhere to start"

Deputy Manager - Operations (Former Employee) says

"Not a professional organization, dont know of other branches are, but Indian counterpart of JCI is surely very unprofessional. After hiring on the next day you may listen that " You have been hired wrongly, actually we dont need any new employee now " . That time you would wonder, what is my fault, I have left a secured job and joined JCI thinking that this might be a good organisation. After that, they will not involve you in any thing, you shall keep on sitting days after days. You might hear from you super boss that " for you I could not hire one of my relative, be ready you have to go". And suddenly one day you might hear from HR that, you have to leave on that same day. This is the culture of Johnson Controls. Now they have started sacking so many employees. I would not recommend any body to join this bad organisation.NothingEverything"

"I went in through I temporarily service they where nice to get you in the door an after that come to work on time everyday or be fired what you day doesn’t matter it was the supervisor or the employees in any situation"

projecr engineer (Former Employee) says

"if you work there just know that the management are sneaky and deceptive. They will smile in your face and give you a hug just to find the soft spot before they stab you in the back. You can't trust them, they will have you thinking you're doing a great job then fire you for no reason thw next day. It was not only me I saw plenty of turn over at that company while I was there. One gut almost had a heart attack"

Emergency Dispatch Operator (Former Employee) says

"The work environment is TERRIBLE & all that matters is numbers numbers numbers. The office furniture is terrible. The computer system is a joke and SUPPORT is non existent."

Former Employee says

"Extremely poorly ran company, the worst I have ever seen. The company is the epitome of corporate profit and greed. JCI has hired consultant Mckinsey and Company as their hencemen to implement 1800\'s style management. 50 hour plus work weeks but pay you for 40. Continually take away benefits every year. Annual increases are below the rate of inflation, if you are lucky enough to get any at all. CEO and VPs are collecting high salaries but cannot run the company without consultants, what good are they? The board of directors should terminate them and replace. SEC should also investigate their books, there are a lot of shenanigans going on with this company. "

Alfred Higgs says

"very hard to do business with this company. Unproffessional they scam contractors and they use very low quality machines. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE"

Kevin worrell says

"This company is a joke, they advertise for professionals over the internet in gulftalent and for the past 2 years the site says there is always an error. Real amateurs"

John Hawthorne says

"If it was possible to give no stars and leave a review that’s exactly what would happen here . I have waited over 8 months for Johnson Controls Glasgow to install a standard ADT wireless monitored home alarm .Each time the engineer attends they tell me that they have still to bring another item of equipment needed to complete the install just before they leave Question (WHERE IS THE JOB PLANNING ? ) Answer (THERE IS NONE ) I have had 4 visits in total ,multiple excuses and storylines to explain away the problems ,I am sorry extremely sub standard service does not sit well with me ! I notified ADT through their contact us web page that I was deeply unhappy with the performance of Johnson Controls Glasgow office and told them that I had put an end to this Charade and instructed the Glasgow office to remove the partial system install that has taken over 8 months . ADT came back very apologetic and stated that we will get this sorted out ! Let’s see how long this takes them to get to the bottom of the problem ,in the meantime I got an automated call from ADT as I am a key holder to tell me that there was a problem with my Alarm system that’s not bad it only took 26 hrs to flag that there was a problem with the alarm . Johnson Controls Glasgow have clearly not informed the monitoring centre or system of the update and removal of the alarm . I am just curious to see how long it will take ADT to understand the problem given the fact that it took Johnson Controls over 8 months to complete only a partial alarm system install using standard parts ? No wonder there is a growing market for Yale wireless alarm systems and a growing number of DIY self installs taking place given the extremely poor level of service supplied from the OEM alarm manufacturers Johnson Controls Glasgow what a waste of time ! If you plan on getting an ADT alarm system please make sure you get another office to deal with your install as this Glasgow office is chaotic and non functional at best . Johnson Controls are dragging the good name of ADT through the mud and tarnishing their brand name and reputation . It’s not the alarm system that’s needs to be monitored ADT should be keeping a careful eye on the poorly run Glasgow office to make sure they don’t continue to serve up substandard service to their new customers . A PATHETIC DEMONSTRATION OF EXTREMELY POOR SERVICE AT ITS WORDT AS I DONT BELIEVE ITS POSSIBLE TO SINK ANY FURTHER THE GLASGOW OFFICE HAS HIT ROCK BOTTOM HERE ! Dealing with the Glasgow office of Johnson Controls is very much like a game of snakes and ladders 2 or 3 moves forward then over a dozen moves backwards . Johnson Controls sort your selves out and this particular office for the sake of the reputation and good name of ADT .! At least ADT attempted to get in contact with me and tried to resolve the situation , unfortunately it’s a waiting game now ,as Bella from ADT didn’t leave any contact details or e-mail addresses for me to follow up with ,only a brief message saying that it would be handed over to the appropriate department ,let’s see what happens and exactly how long it takes them to swing into action and turn things around I am only glad that Johnson Controls are not dealing with the complaints issue or I could be in for a painfully long wait . ADT please stop calling the key holders to inform them that there is a problem with the alarm now that the alarm is no longer installed !"
