    I worked at Tyco

    Pros

    Like most sales jobs, you get what you put in. The job has a great work life balance. Awesome training in Boca Raton, FL. Great benefits: Health, Dental, Vision, Company vehicle with all insurance, gas, and maintenace
     paid. Good company to get your foot in the door and get professional experience.

    Cons

    Numbers numbers numbers! They hound you for proposals! It seems that proposals are more important than sales. Lots of little conference calls and webinars that waste your time and get your out of the field during prime selling hours (although they are working on it) They don't use salesforce, but use their own propitiatory system which blows. Lots of company leads also suck--you are really on your own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop implementing procedures and targets that don't make sense for a field rep!

    I have been working at Tyco

    Pros

    Benefits, training, company vehicle, pay within industry standard.

    Cons

    Sr management has lost sight of what serving customers is actually all about. Cutting costs and beating down the employees is driving good technicians away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pull your head out of your conference calls and take care of the delivery process. The rest will come.

    I worked at Tyco

    Pros

    I did like the fact that the company does put you through an extensive training for 2 weeks. The company does provide you with a company car and gas card.

    Cons

    In my particular case, I ended up in the hospital and home for 2 weeks soon after I finished training. I was anxious to get back to work to not fall to far behind. For some reason, I couldn't any time with my sales manager to get caught up on some things. They have a complicated database system for finding parts, recreating contracts and proposals. The biggest problem though was that in the beginning of your training, you really have to depend on sales engineers to put together fire proposals as well as some other products and that can take weeks to get the plans back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think more emphasis needs to be placed on mastering their database system before you hit the field, because you can't even spit out a proposal without that. If the manager is not going to support the reps, at least set up a pairing with an experienced rep for the first few weeks out of training. There are a lot of moving parts to wrap your head around in the beginning.
