    Pros

    Large Company, Competitive Pay, Good Benefits, Opportunities for Advancement.

    Cons

    Upper management decisions are sometimes erratic (mostly when there is a change in leadership)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold managers more accountable and try to set an overall strategy. Frequently itt looks like you are making it up as it goes along.

    Pros

    The benefits are good. And most of the people in the supporting roles are reliable and great to work with.

    Cons

    The corporate beings are unreliable for the most part and are out of touch and aloof.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your best to become more in touch with all aspects of every part of your company. Just because you have been told about it or read about it doesn't mean you know what really goes on. Try to see the actual process of every job and function for yourself and realize that your employees enter some of the most hazardous situations and environments every time they leave their service vehicle.

    Pros

    Constant volume of work, you should never run out of work working for this organization

    Cons

    Challenging management style. Constant financial pressure to do more with less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch turnover. You are losing good people due to morale issues, you are replacing quality people with lower quality individuals. Reduce your turnover of employees.

    Former Employee - Engineering Intern in Boca Raton, FL

    I worked at Tyco as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Resources of big company. Was good if you were in a role where you got to contribute to decisions. I had no training, no evaluation, and very loose internship goals. Seemed like most people were only working 40 hr/week and had pretty good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Everything seemed to move really slowly. I was not blown away by the other employees. There are very few females.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your people more, and focus on better communication between departments and levels

    Pros

    Company car, ability to develop as a leader

    Cons

    Micro managing bosses, mentors that won't let go, even after several years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your people lead, you want to have great customer relationships, let your managers make the decisions they need to retain customers, not just make metrics look good.

    I worked at Tyco (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There were great opportunities the company itself had such a wonderful product that everyone wanted to get there hands on because it was one of a kind and could not be gotten anywhere else except thru the company. There were a lot of good people that worked there and we became like a family.

    Cons

    If I had to choose a challenge I guess I would have to say not enough communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just get to know your employees .... you would be surprise how talented some of them are.

    Current Employee - Administrative Assistant
    Current Employee - Administrative Assistant

    I have been working at Tyco full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pay is decent and benefits are pretty good compared to what most offer (401K match, bonuses for completing healthy activities, insurance isn't as expensive as other companies)

    Cons

    No room to grow. Quick to hire upper management and sales people from outside, but not so quick to hire the inspectors to support the new sales. Frequently let people go, then ask current employees to perform previous employees job duties for months or longer at a time (assuming the people they let go are ever replaced). Management and Sales team can do whatever they wanted while admin and inspectors are considered below everyone and treated as such.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that the people who bring in the revenue are the people at the bottom. Give more opportunities for growth from within rather than always hiring outside of the company.

    The Best

    I have been working at Tyco

    Pros

    The best company I ever worked for, the people are great and they are the reason I stay and continue to love going into work

    Cons

    Salary increases are average; don't expect a lot when it is time for a increase; use your sick days as personal days

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your all of your employees; everyone is working towards the same goals including the people who do their jobs and don't look for rewards
