    decent company to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosmanager was great to work for

    Consinstall department was difficult to work with. CRM worthless. Overhead and margins price you out of bid jobs and price competitive jobs

    A short stop while looking elsewhere

    Program Manager (Former Employee)
    Westford, MA

    ProsSome good people, interesting technology, division is growing revenue wise.

    ConsGrowth through acquisitions has produced many disjointed processes, each location does things differently. Not conducive to the "One Tyco" mantra. Very slow to back fill positions vacated through attrition. No real incentives for retaining good employees. Lots of overworked employees. HR is abysmal.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize and promote good talent when you have it. Provide retention incentives outside of the Engineering Management structure. Bonuses, ISO or RCU's. Provide clear career ladder guidance for those who ask about it. Clear out the Westford HR group and re-populate with professionals who will be responsible and work with the management team to help entice people to want to work there.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not a happy place

    Commercial Sales Executive (Current Employee)
    Earth City, MO

    ProsIt's a job. They give you the bare minimum base plus commission

    ConsMicro management. Upper management is full of nepotism, plus they are detached bean counters whose only concerns are with the shareholders... Employees are second class.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop hiring your buddies that have no experience in sales or security and try taking care of the people that create the opportunities for you to get paid.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
