    Negative Outlook

    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
