    I worked at Tyco full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company at my specific branch were all very friendly and helpful with basic day to day tasks. Nice new office and they give you a car for your travels.

    Cons

    If you don't know something, good luck figuring it out cause there will be no help from the management. They provided minimal support and education on the the products you are asked to sell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start the new people off with ride alongs, making sure that those who are selling your products know what they are talking about.

    I worked at Tyco

    Pros

    Like most sales jobs, you get what you put in. The job has a great work life balance. Awesome training in Boca Raton, FL. Great benefits: Health, Dental, Vision, Company vehicle with all insurance, gas, and maintenace
     paid. Good company to get your foot in the door and get professional experience.

    Cons

    Numbers numbers numbers! They hound you for proposals! It seems that proposals are more important than sales. Lots of little conference calls and webinars that waste your time and get your out of the field during prime selling hours (although they are working on it) They don't use salesforce, but use their own propitiatory system which blows. Lots of company leads also suck--you are really on your own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop implementing procedures and targets that don't make sense for a field rep!

    Pros

    Benefits, training, company vehicle, pay within industry standard.

    Cons

    Sr management has lost sight of what serving customers is actually all about. Cutting costs and beating down the employees is driving good technicians away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pull your head out of your conference calls and take care of the delivery process. The rest will come.

    I worked at Tyco full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent salary, most managers are flexible to allow for decent work/life balance, good knowledgeable and friendly employees.

    Cons

    Upper Management always says that "Our employees are our most valuable asset" and they always talk about how much free cash we have available. At the same time they are quick to outsource and lay off their "most valuable assets" and not replace the voids making more work for those left behind. This has employees always looking over their shoulders and making the work environment unfavorable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Truly invest more in your people instead of just saying you are doing this. Stop getting rid of your "most valuable assets" and keep the people who have helped you achieve all the free cash you have on hand and again invest in them.
