    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 Management

    -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.
