I have been working at Tyco full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Large corporate structure with lots of money and locations

Cons

Bean counter mentality with a large force of paranoia forces techs and other employees to watch their back. Most of the people I work with a fearful, day to day, of losing their jobs. From the temps and new hires, all the way to the 30 year veterans, there is a sense that there could be potential, but because of inadequate management and friends hiring friends, there will not be any growth potential unless you rub the back of the right person.

Advice to Management

Start listening to your employees. Provide ON THE CLOCK training. Hire people that better the company and the other emplyees instead of who you would like to go golfing with.

    Clear performance measurement system; good "salt of the earth" type people; strive for excellence

    IT systems about 10 years behind; new ideas take time to take root; sometimes a "yes man" culture; employees not very diverse, especially at headquarters

    Advice to Management

    take some risks; bring IT into the 21st century; encourage creativity and true diversity
