    I have been working at Tyco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They pay you money to be here. That's the only pro and even then, if they could find a way not to pay you, they wouldn't.

    Cons

    Lowest factory pay in the area. Terrible employee benefits. Near constant overtime, can't have a life outside of JCI. Takes responsibility of upper management and dumps it on their shop floor employees. Refuses to shut down production during a pandemic, still posts mandatory over time, tells parents they have to use all their vacation and sick time before they can have unpaid time off to care for children during a health crisis. Takes chairs out of the lunch room to practice social distancing, while insisting they keep operations going. Allows abusive, toxic supervisors to terrorize employees. Places importance on production and profits over employee's own well being.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Tyco full-time

    Pros

    There are NO positive aspects of this organization. I very much regret ever working for TYCO. I was misled to believe that commission payouts negated the low salary and that there was career opportunity to join other divisions within JCI.

    Cons

    Literally pay at poverty level and look to swindle you out of commission whenever and however possible. Management must be given incentive to minimize commission payout, because I have never experienced an organization so adverse to paying their reps. Instead they have $25 sales contests and hand out $10 Subway gift cards like it was the year 1919 instead of 2020.
