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

    Pros

    Flex time (for some), telecommuting (for some)...some decent people.

    Cons

    Layers upon layers of management.
    Constant upheaval and change.
    Lots of "Our Employees Matter Most" talk, not a lot demonstrated.
    Lots of new people in management positions that have little industry experience.
    Long term knowledgeable people seem to be dwindling.
    Lack of innovation and creation of new products....possible because the people who do the innovating, do it for someone else now.
    Completely disconnected senior leaders from the employees below.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put some meaning behind all the slogans and catch phrases.
    Create some new products.
    Thin the top of all of the org charts before they tip.
    Outsource less and try to build up and retain some knowledge again.

    Pros

    Good benifets. Some great people.

    Cons

    Middle management is killing them. Company moral is way down. Comp plans adjusted every year so you make less money. Once your on the GM's bad list, your done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about employees as much as numbers.

    Pros

    Large Company, Competitive Pay, Good Benefits, Opportunities for Advancement.

    Cons

    Upper management decisions are sometimes erratic (mostly when there is a change in leadership)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold managers more accountable and try to set an overall strategy. Frequently itt looks like you are making it up as it goes along.

    Pros

    The benefits are good. And most of the people in the supporting roles are reliable and great to work with.

    Cons

    The corporate beings are unreliable for the most part and are out of touch and aloof.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your best to become more in touch with all aspects of every part of your company. Just because you have been told about it or read about it doesn't mean you know what really goes on. Try to see the actual process of every job and function for yourself and realize that your employees enter some of the most hazardous situations and environments every time they leave their service vehicle.
