Current Employee - Fire Alarm Inspector in Sacramento, CA
Current Employee - Fire Alarm Inspector in Sacramento, CA

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

Pros

Large corporate structure with lots of money and locations

Cons

Bean counter mentality with a large force of paranoia forces techs and other employees to watch their back. Most of the people I work with a fearful, day to day, of losing their jobs. From the temps and new hires, all the way to the 30 year veterans, there is a sense that there could be potential, but because of inadequate management and friends hiring friends, there will not be any growth potential unless you rub the back of the right person.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start listening to your employees. Provide ON THE CLOCK training. Hire people that better the company and the other emplyees instead of who you would like to go golfing with.

    Former Employee - Electrictronics Project Manager in Oklahoma City, OK

    I worked at Tyco full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The reasons are simple, Great Techs, Company Truck, adequate pay, great benifits. While being allowed free rain to come and go as you please. Who wouldn't want that?

    Cons

    The downside is not enough tech help, long hours, poor management, dis-organized warehouse, no means of back stocking material for emergancies, no means of hiring help for emegencies or when work load requires it, no real estimators, constant brow beatings about loosing money, the mentality that everything is either the tech's fault or someone else, to much finger pointing when things go wrong.
    And the 401k is only matching funds after a 3 year vestment period. It was never revealed to me as such and was a direct reason for my taking the job. So when you leave at 2 years and 364 days that $30k you think you are going to roll over is only $15k. THIS IS NOT RIGHT!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the CM he's a functional alcoholic and 90% of the problem. Hire some estimators, salesmen sale and estimators should estimate, period! Throw away the GPS on the trucks and get the guys in the field some help and a raise. Shore up your warehouse and get some delivery personnel. Yes it is true; Cost is Cost, Cash is King but it is not always the PM's fault or his responsibility to fix.
