Pros

It's a job, which, is better than not having one.

Cons

Seems that some are favored over others based on how well you can hang out with the management or how pretty you might be, or cool. Based on previous management promotions, most all persons promoted lack the skills to do the job promoted too. Even when this is discovered, it takes way to long for the problem to be remedied. Another problem is the pawning off of duties. More and more sales persons at SimplexGrinnell are expected to cover the tasks of designer, and project manager while keeping the numbers high. This leads to much time spent working on parts ordering, scheduling, tracking down infomation, work that a project manager needs to do and gets paid well to do.

    I worked at Tyco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cutting edge video and security technology with good chances to work in performance engineering.

    Cons

    Compensation could be better.
    Suffers from an US centric management which often fails to recognise contributions from satellite sites.
    Can be very political at times.

    Advice to Management

    Adopt a merit based approach and actually apply a fair appraisal process. Would be a lot easier if the compensation improved.
