    I worked at Tyco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very few pros but, the insurance is decent and offers HSA account which is helpful at times. Not many people at the Carol Stream location.

    Cons

    They don't distribute work fairly, management is really bad there and will try to degrade you. When review time comes the the boss there will find every excuse not to give you any kind of raise because you haven't been there long enough. When you bring up a noticeable problem at work you seem to be red flagged and now watched for anything you do.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to be a good leader and reward people that actually work and help.

    I worked at Tyco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Talented people to work with, Good work/life balance, Interesting work in an area that is evolving and a lot of disruption from startups.

    Cons

    A lot of talk about innovation and quoting from books but that's where it ends. If you are in the "inner circle" there are opportunities in the company. If you aren't in the "inner circle" your voice will not be heard. For a $10B startup there's still a very heavy corporate hierarchy.

    With the merger with Johnson Controls coming there is a lot of uncertainty. The tagline is "business as usual" but with the merger coming there's a lot of "wait and see" as far as action.
