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

    Pros

    Top Notch employees and very good/loyal customer base

    Support your people! They are the face of your business. This must happen top to bottom all of the way through the leadership structure

    Pros

    Easy to get hired, not a difficult job, lots of opportunities for advancement.

    Underpaid for doing multiple roles, management needs better training, managers play favorites. Management does not have an open door policy. Management does not work towards Tycos motto. No integrity at all with management.

    Advice to Management

    Show a little compassion for the employees, they are human too not robots. Hire people who want to work not who are there only for a paycheck.

    Pros

    It was a good opportunity to learn and take on additional responsibilities. The constant change within the organization created career paths.

    Solid company with decent benefits including 401K, several healthcare options, dental, vision, and life insurance.
