Pros

This type of business does not suffer as much as other companies due to a recession. Most products are necessary, not optional. Several large projects due in the next few years will make this company somewhat recession proof. This company continues to grow, and is actively hiring new employees for many different types of jobs.

Cons

The manufacturing plant is old fashioned and a lot of the most experienced employees are close to retirement age. This means that much of the expertise will retire also. This company is very conservative and slow moving, and therefore is slow to develop and introduce new products.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue current path and focus. Leave this small division of Tyco International to manage itself.

    Pros

    The salaries at Tyco are very competitive. The compensation packages aren't bad either. Another reason to work Tyco are the many locations and offices located across the world. If you ever needed to transfer, there's a good chance that a Tyco would be nearby.

    Cons

    The size of the company is too large and you are treated as just a number. This I think is the big contributor to the low morale seen through out the company. The lack of direction seen in the sensormatic division is a major drawback. Because the many SBU's are part of the large Tyco conglomerate, this limit the choices of the presidents of each division in their quest to grow the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should try boosting employee morale somehow.

    Pros

    Diverse group of people, interesting product lines.

    Cons

    Promotions do not seem merit based

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the qaulity of work as the determining factor for salary and promotions. While being able to maneuver politically is fine quality of work should take the top spot.
