Lots of Opportunity for High Performers

Senior Finance Manager (Current Employee)
Boca Raton, FL

I have been working at Tyco full-time for more than 3 years

ProsTyco is a large global company with many business segments, creating lots of room for advancement. I enjoy a great deal of flexibility in my schedule as long as the work gets done.

ConsDue to the recent split of the company from ADT and Pentair, there has been a great deal of shifting strategies and focus. Though i expect this will work itself out in the near term.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great company with great products!

Senior Director Engineering (Former Employee)
Boca Raton, FL

I worked at Tyco full-time for more than 10 years

ProsTyco successfully navigated the tedious and incredibly difficult process of integrating multiple (hundreds) of acquired technology and service businesses and is well on its way to delivery of highly featured and advanced security technology products to a global customer base. Tyco is a company to consider if you are looking for a global manufacturing, engineering or sales experience.

ConsBecause the company grew primarily by acquisition ( as opposed to organically ) there are still "seams" in the fabric that make little sense ( unless you understand how the seam got there in the first place ) and can be very frustrating with which to deal. On the other hand ... these are also opportunities for assertive and wise managers.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to work at finding ways of keeping your most experienced and capable talent working on the most strategically important projects. You have much work to do as the needs of the security solution buyer are growing faster than you can deliver.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
