    I worked at Tyco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work arrangements, decent pay, generally good teamwork. Benefits are average. Opportunity to work on global initiatives. Decent compensation packages.

    Cons

    Leadership at the top is clueless and have no vision or strategy. The new CIO is solely focused on cost (meaning headcount reductions mostly) which what he focused on at Tyco. JCI is a very different company with different objectives and he does not get that. Sad to say but he may be in over his head. Big "good old boy" network - roles are based on who you know not what you do. Not a great work environment now with merger activities.

    I have been working at Tyco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity to meet great clients, design solutions and stretch goals and thinking.
    Commission potential makes up for the below industry average salary.

    Cons

    Communication from Install and Service Departments to clients is continual struggle, oftentimes causing Sales Rep's day to be filled with putting out fires rather than productively seeking new business.

    Advice to Management

    Ask frontline Sales what is working. Many practices in place are antiquated and ineffective. Just because "that's the way things have always been done," doesn't mean they work. Embrace change.

    When trying to help customers finding out their Salesman would not be available to them when they have questions only he can answers, once they close the sale they leave the customer out there which is frustrating to me as A customer rep
