    I worked at Tyco (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers, not much else besides that.

    Cons

    Management. They choose favorites despite work ethic and are creepy towards white females who are always promoted even after a month or so. Definitely not fans of people of ethnic backgrounds.

    Advice to Management

    Stop creeping on women

    I worked at Tyco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Equipment is new.
    Supplies and work materials always available.
    Competitive salary.
    Many opportunities to advance and learn.

    Cons

    Little to no support or direction to take advantage of the opportunities offered by corporate.
    Too many channels to navigate when support needed.
    Too much "red tape" when something simple is needed.

    Advice to Management

    Screen/vet management better. Specifically TSMs. (eg 20 years in sales doesn't qualify for such a technically based management position) Unqualified TSMs overworked, unfamiliar with departments being overseen.
    Make the opportunities that are offered more accessible to all employees.
