    Tyco IS

    Customer Experience Advocate (Current Employee)
    Boca Raton, FL

    ProsI love the company but I am frequently embarrassed by our performance.There is potential here. People are great, many long term employees. Really good technicians and installers. Good job stability and average pay. Newer CEO (G.O) has some good initiatives and has made some mistakes. Time will tell if he recognizes the difference.

    ConsLeadership is out of touch with customer needs. There is so much potential here! Insufficient manpower investment to deliver world class results to clients. NOT a pay for performance culture.(Even though that is the current mantra). With the notable exception of the sales representatives who are base+commission. When you own a customer issue/concern be prepared to sacrifice your key performance metrics to see it through.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUndercover boss! Roll up your sleeves and get in front of everyday clients. There are pockets of excellence but far too many inexcusable lapses. Provide the support infrastructure.(I.e people dedicated and empowered to resolve the problem. Don't just add the responsibility to the workload of your current employees). THEN PURGE THE CONSISTENT UNDER-PERFORMERS.Talk to every customer after the sales appointment, after the installation and after a service appointment. Recognize where we are failing and take action. Make the connection between performance and growth. Don't define people as sales or sales support. We are all accountable for sales and dependent on growing revenue. Stop giving our clients reasons to look elsewhere.

    Director Software Development

    Director (Former Employee)
    Boca Raton, FL

    ProsGreat place to work, when old management team was around.

    ConsEngineers are just a number and expendable... They are killed the golden goose when they bought the well run companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFirst it was to buy companies for synergies. Now it is split them up so they can focus on their business.... Back to the way it was. Execs get rich, everyone else pays.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Mistake from day one

    Anonymous (Former Employee)
    Boca Raton, FL

    Proslarge diversified company that promotes values internally, other Tyco groups seem to promote from within - not in retail.

    ConsManagement doesn't walk the talk, VPs especially from my experience. Planning and strategy sessions that never end, but execution that never happens.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to pay attention to the details, your message isn't executed by those that are tasked with leading.

    Lots of Opportunity for High Performers

    Senior Finance Manager (Current Employee)
    Boca Raton, FL

    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

    Good starter, not for long term

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsComfortable working facility with nice amenities.

    ConsA company that promotes work life balance but does not grant it to you. Unfair treatment amongst employees. There is little reward and recognition for hard work.

    Sr. Finance Manager

    Senior Finance Manager (Former Employee)
    Boca Raton, FL

    ProsGood benefits such as Gym, cafeteria a small starbucks and decent salary. The company offers good opportunities only if you have a good manager, good financial systems, good leadership training and six sigma training.

    ConsLow morale, not work life balance, poor management style, micromanagement style, lack of professionalism, not potential to growth they rather hire somebody from outside the company instead of promoting for within. Poor comunication. You get a sense that you can lose your job any time. The hotline system does not work potential retaliation if you complain about your manager, double standard since the rules does not apply to all the employees. Very political.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEvery manager should participate in the leadership programs provided by the company and apply them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Technologically Undeveloped, decentralized. Unhappy and Boring work atmosphere

    Unknown (Current Employee)
    Boca Raton, FL

    ProsDiversity in the Workplace, friendly people, great location, decent pay and benefits

    ConsComplex Organizational structure, directors and vice presidents are gods you don't see them. Fully decentralized, no global standards, including ERP, business processes, business templates, global reporting strategy.
    Lack of investment by an organization in team development. No holiday celebration in the departments. As the result, unhappy and boring work atmosphere.No funds for training and development, no growth opportunities. Awful office amenities, no windows, no plants.

    Advice to Senior Managementbuild a positive morale which results in increased employee motivation

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
