    I worked at Tyco full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    When you work there it has a family type atmosphere. If you need help there is someone to help and guide you

    Cons

    Like I said above it is a family type setting. Just like family there are people that will stab you in the back to make themselves look better no matter how much they have to lie about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have HR take a better look at the personal

    Pros

    Great environment and fantastic people. A great mix of challenge and reward along with day to day almost familial bonds with co-workers. Great balance of work life balance and awesome flexibility.

    Cons

    Very difficult to advance in this company without a degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better decision making and planning ahead. Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat. Think ahead.

    I worked at Tyco full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great general counsel. Very open and collaborative legal team. Lots of upward advancement opportunity. Interesting global work in a very matrixed environment.

    Cons

    Change is constant. While legal department is stable, and for the most part happy, other functions really struggle with leadership, ambiguity and receiving feedback.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication with employees.

    Pros

    Great people and work environment. The work is steady and not overbearing. When interacting with other colleges, everyone is friendly and helpful. Managers are not harsh or abusive, they expect you to keep moving forward on your projects, but provide great guidance and advice when you may need it.

    Cons

    The Economy has caused some incentive promotions and cost of living increases to be short in the last few years. The out of pocket cost of health insurance has also increased.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are always there to help , guide and support. keep up the good work.
