    I worked at Tyco full-time

    Pros

    weekly pay, bonus depending on position, flexible, people there are great to work with, except for some management.

    Cons

    management is difficult to work with, they expect way more than what is advertised for the position, barely any advancement into management, high turnover. Different managers have different expectations, even though everyone is supposed to be on the same team

    Advice to Management

    be consistent with everyone, everyone is on a different page and seem completely fake

    I worked at Tyco full-time

    Pros

    It was a great company to work for in the beginning, great benefits, salary and work/ life balance. Also a great learning experience as there was a ton of acquisitions and mergers that grew the company.

    Cons

    Before Tyco became Johnson Controls they kept shrinking through spin offs but the employees were never explicitly told that they were gearing up to be bought out so the in the last years the atmosphere changed and it was not a pleasant place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure about new management as the company was bought by Johnson Controls shortly after I left
