    Former Employee - Project Manager Intern in Cranston, RI

    I worked at Tyco as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    My direct manger was a great supportive person but was clearly and often struck down by upper level mangers. The office (Cranston) I worked in had a great culture, but I was told that was pretty unique to our office.

    Cons

    I have never seen so many filling cabinets in my life. Tyco is an old school company and it was clear during my time there that becoming more modern and adopting new technologies was causing growing pains.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace technology its coming.

    Pros

    Large company, with good products

    Cons

    The environment is very political, with people focusing only on their survival.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not consider people who work outside the US as second class employees.

    Walk the talk! Be serious on how you mange your human resources

    I have been working at Tyco full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some really good people throughout the company; especially at the technician, support, and sales levels. There are always opportunities of higher positions as people are constantly leaving.

    Cons

    Senior management is clueless on what is happening in the field internally and externally. HORRIBLE SERVICE to our customers!!!! NO TRAINING (new or continuous besides some etools check the box type of stuff), have adopted Acclivus but only have budgeted for introductory class. Getting paid is a nightmare and understanding pay plan requires a degree in mathematics. Uses Salesforce.com as a forecasting, micromanagement tool only. Has no clue how to maximize on a CRM tool for the good of the external customer, not senior management. President of the company is a bean counter; not a strong leader at all. Its really an unhealthy place to work! Would never want my kids to work here; just not worth the stress and overall misery.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your people.

    Reassess the way service strategy and delivery is being measured. Regional and local companies are mopping the floor against us.
