    I have been working at Tyco full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary IF you know how to negotiate. Opportunity for technical training on various systems (fire panels, security,cameras, nurse call, etc). Vacation plan, PTO, 401k matching, (usually) good quality fire alarm systems, opportunity to move to another city/district, new every 3 years take home laptop computers.

    Cons

    Forced overtime because of time mismanagement from service dept/SRC, managers that pay more attention to GPS tracking of what time you started truck in am, what time you got home in pm, than your well-being. Beancounters at every level & more middle managers than you can shake a stick at. Low field staffing. Project 'managers' who are 100% clueless, a parts ordering system that even google can't manage, lawsuits left & right because the company doesn't honor prevailing wage laws, ugly uniforms with idiotic mall security looking PATCHES on the sleeves, manufacturing that moved to Mexico & China and now produces unreliable junk. Rising healthcare costs even when Obama said costs would go DOWN, 'managers' who are 100% lacking in people skills, employees fired for discussion to unionize. Centralized billing and centralized service-call taking. From the greatest Central Station alarm center in the Simplex days to the WORST central station operators leftover from ADT?

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people before they take care of your business, themselves. Stop counting the beans and printing off your P & L reports and start appreciating your people. Be as ethical as you expect your field employees to be. Try to pretend you appreciate and like your people instead of them as a $$ liability/expenditure. If you had a great enviornment and took care of your people they wouldn't be looking to unionize!
