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 Management

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

    Approves of CEO

    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 Management

    Senior management should try boosting employee morale somehow.

    Current Employee - Summer Temp Inspector in Harrisburg, PA

    Pros

    You get to see a lot of interesting businesses/buildings. The company is really a leader in its field as you will not find a superior fire safety product out there. The management really seems to care about its employees (most of the time).

    Cons

    While the company gives you vehicles to use, up to one hour of travel each way is not compensated. If your job location is far from the office expect an 11 hour day while only being paid for 8 hours. The dispatching system isn't the most organized and can cause customers to already be upset upon arrival.

    Advice to Management

    Give new inspectors better standardized training instead of on the field observation. If you're with an inspector who doesn't know what he's doing you're going to learn how to do things the incorrect way.
