    no too right now that i have found but still new to the company.

    too new to have a decent opinion. Will revisit this post the 6 month and 12 month marks.

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

    Pros

    Great people and managers; lots of opportunity; great for building your resume; flexible workspace; collaborative environment; good 401k plan

    Cons

    Very uncompetitive salaries; corporate HR prevents opportunity for growth in job salary/position (very difficult to advance at Tyco); if you're in a position and they determine the position will fall under a higher salary range, they still don't adjust your salary (but all future hires will be making far more than you make); very long hours and sometimes salaried employees are expected to come in on the weekend with no additional compensation; very old and outdated WMS/ERPs; high turnover

    Advice to Management

    The managers I work with are wonderful; it's the corporate levels that really stiffen our growth because they won't invest in more advanced programs/tools/resources, nor will they provide sufficient IT support.

    I worked at Tyco full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Opportunity for growth if you want to relocate
    highly intelligent employees

    Cons

    Workforce not replaced as they leave, too many things piling up on one person.
    Once stellar service is starting to fall behind

    Advice to Management

    Remember your customers, if they leave due to service, all the new sales in the world will not bring back your market share.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Tyco full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits if you can get through the red tape of doing your job. Metrics have driven many to just not care about the real job (taking care of the customer) and focus on making them correct.

    Cons

    Constant harping on metrics, not enough support from office and management. Treats employees like children and don't seem to trust the people doing the job.

    Advice to Management

    Close up shop the culture you have cultivated will go no where and you will continue to lose employees. OR change your view on employees and make them valued and if you ask for an opinion from them at least take them at their word.


  9. "Service Technician"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Neutral Outlook

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

    Pros

    Tyco has a friendly environment that will allow its employees to have a cohesive environment to work in.

    Cons

    There is not much communication between the higher ups/management and the employees. This causes turmoil amongst all. There is also no follow through with what was told to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    communicate with employees and follow through with what was told to them

    Pros

    Working at Tyco has been a great experience. I have learned a lot, I enjoy my coworkers, and am proud of the work that we do.

    Cons

    There is no investment on employee growth and development - the tools are just not in place and leadership has no clue as to where to begin. The company is perfectly happy to let you sit in the same position that you started in for 15+ years if you let them.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to grow employees. Unfortunately, you will be stuck with lackluster staff if people continue to feel that there is no where to grow.
