    I worked at Tyco Thermal Controls full-time

    Pros

    Relaxed Atmosphere, Decent People, Paid holidays. Very easy to master the task at hand and become proficient. Best place to start a career for recent college grads also a good place for people with families because the company is understanding about the demands a family brings.

    Cons

    A lot of brown nosing to get ahead, sometimes the work you put forward just isn't good enough if you are not close with someone.
    Everyday is like the day before, not a lot of new challenges except for dealing with a department filled with young adults.
    Very easy to spot who is well liked and who is not liked.
    Not a very good place for someone who is very career orientated because there is not much you can do with the experience you get.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your eyes open because a few bad seed can corrupt the whole bunch, also managers have to try to be examples for the employees to follow.

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

    Pros

    Has a variety of jobs, skills and operates 24/5.
    Hires temporary workers as well as regular
    Benefits are good when hired for regular
    People of many culture and age are employed there
    Has a lot of overetime

    Cons

    Old line company using equipment that at times is over 30 years old. As result break downs occur frequently.
    People can be very nice, but it definitely is "old School" , don't make waves with your manager
    Located in two different cities that nearby, but you may need to drive a lot if required to service both sites.

    Pros

    good wages and benefits with an understanding management team. Work areas are usually clean due to a very diligent cleaning program.

    Cons

    work slow downs suddenly appear, no notice of them from management. It's almost like they think you'll believe that they didn't see a slowdown coming. How do you not notice orders dwindling? Some management are only in it for themselves. They don't take ideas and when they give you a decision that upper management doesn't agree with....prepare to be thrown under the bus.

    Advice to Management

    promote from within, look for the workers that are making suggestions and instead of paying lip service why not actually take them aside and explore some of the ideas?
