    I have been working at Tyco

    Pros

    Like everything it would depend on who you work with and for whom. I have been very lucky great group of people to work with. I can see in the long run it would be a very lucrative position. - uncapped commissions lots of career advancement IF you're willing to move.

    Cons

    Long sales cycle, takes a while before you get running. Management is really hung up on meeting quota's and pressure to meet them, not really caring about the current customer as much as gaining new business. Way too many parts and pieces, more is not better in this regard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More attention needs to be addressed to existing customers and making our current customers happy then just getting new accounts and selling security products.

    Pros

    Decent Benefits and Time off.

    Cons

    Management cannot sustain goals enacted by company, worse than that to compensate it tries to enact rules to govern employees reducing morale. Bad History of corruption.

    Pros

    Company car if you are lucky enough to get one. Decent people that work in the field for the most part.

    Cons

    Oh boy! Where do I start. Low wages, terrible raises, no room for growth within unless you are in the boys club! Hire temp employees all the time instead of getting a full time guy and teaching them how to do the job. They would rather pay a temp more money then you make to do half the work that you do. Take my advice run! Stay away from this company biggest mistake I ever made in my life was working here. Glad I got out of this place. They watch you like a hawk here always monitoring your GPS on your company vehicle. You could work overtime everyday and not claim it on your time sheet then one day you get home literally 1 min early and you catch hell about it. It's all about numbers here it's a numbers game they would rather make there numbers look good then worry about the customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Big problems here hope you can get it figured out so the employees can stop hating there jobs.

    Pros

    The best parts of working here include making your own hours, deciding your own limit, and the company benefits

    Cons

    Expendable. If you're not hitting your sales numbers, they will find a reason for you to go.
