    Pros

    The best reason to work here is they let you do your job. They give the freedom to employees to use their skills and knowledge.

    Cons

    It is a big company and you may get lost in all people that need to be involved in decision making.

    Advice to Management

    The sales people run this organization and it is all about sales. Need to focus on the delivery of the products - not sales.

    Pros

    Tyco is more streamlined than it has been in 15 years. The people and work are great, employees are asked to be successful and are generally left alone to do their jobs.

    Cons

    Management can sometimes, be short-sighted, with evaporating investment budgets and lack of follow-through on stated strategies.

    Advice to Management

    Put your money where your mouth is. Entrepreneurial behavior is all about top-line growth, not in maintaining stock price. You say your employees are your #1 asset, so stop killing motivation and morale through short-sighted controls, layoffs and busy work.
