    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Tyco full-time

    Pros

    It was a great company to work for in the beginning, great benefits, salary and work/ life balance. Also a great learning experience as there was a ton of acquisitions and mergers that grew the company.

    Cons

    Before Tyco became Johnson Controls they kept shrinking through spin offs but the employees were never explicitly told that they were gearing up to be bought out so the in the last years the atmosphere changed and it was not a pleasant place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure about new management as the company was bought by Johnson Controls shortly after I left

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Tyco (Princeton, NJ) in August 2016.

    Interview

    submitted my resume to a recruiter, was contacted about a week later and had a phone screen scheduled a couple of weeks after that. phone screen was very technical followed by an in person at tyco in princeton with the Director of Platform services. interview went well and lead engineer mentioned pushing to get the role moving but was contacted a day later indicating i did not have as strong "enterprise" experience as they had expected though i work for the DoD and in my prior role was an infrastructure engineer focused on virtualization for a 50k plus user environment with multiple global datacenters. this role has been open for some time and tyco has had issues filling it.
