    No major changes with the new JCI ownership. It feels like they are trying to make as smooth a transition as possible

    Pros

    Tyco sells a broad range of industry leading security products, making sales roles at TSP that much easier. They are a large well-funded organization and relatively stable. Employee retention is strong.

    Cons

    It can be tough to make changes quickly in a company this size. Not all management is easily accessible, which can make sharing ideas upstream difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Enable more skip-level interaction to increase vertical mind share.

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    No support from local or upper management. Incompetent overpaid coworkers no accountability for many. Workload is put on the few competent workers without any additional compensation.

    Cons

    Too much pressure put on sales which puts great stress on field guys to make the impossible possible with no chance of success. Being at the bottom when the job fails as an installer you are the responsible one the accountable one.

    Advice to Management

    Try and listen to your guys in the field. Get feedback from the ones you can trust not the ones that are trying to manipulate things for themselves

    Pros

    Managers are some what flexible with your schedule. There was a good work ethic and most other employees were very nice people.

    Cons

    I have really nothing bad to highlight, my experience at Simplex Grinnell was great where I made good friends. The only strange thing I noticed was that upper management had an impressive turn over.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
