    I have been working at Tyco full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity to meet great clients, design solutions and stretch goals and thinking. Commission potential makes up for the below industry average salary.

    Cons

    Communication from Install and Service Departments to clients is continual struggle, oftentimes causing Sales Rep's day to be filled with putting out fires rather than productively seeking new business.

    I worked at Tyco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company car with paid insurance, service and Fuel card. The office environment is calm and sterile. They provide you an iPad and company laptop.

    Cons

    A review for a company with numerous problems threatens to become a list in this category: The structural process for completing projects is haphazard and often places salesmen at the brunt of the blame unfairly. Without proper support and job expedition, this company routinely shoots itself in the foot. If your manager fails to foster a learning environment conducive to building team morale, as in my case, you are screwed. The corruption comes down the pecking order of management in your office. Tyco IS is also overpriced with their security solutions. There are numerous vendors that can do the same for a fraction of the cost. The chain of command in this organization ineffectively runs this haphazard business process. That is where the roots of the problems mainly lie. If you don't have a supportive manager, you are on your own. Nepotism and corporate backbiting is sure to a play a role in this monopoly.

    Pros

    Provide insight and guidance on best practices and tactics that maximize returns on investment. I am confident that I provided enthusiasm, dedication and sales management experience necessary to successfully contribute to your professional organization.

    Cons

    To little vendor training on new product introduction. Which in my opinion is necessary to build customer added value.

    I worked at Tyco full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Everything is laid out for you, company cars, company generated leads, training. Pay based on cost of living by particular state. Paid weekly.

    Cons

    Tyco has no sense of respect - I was the #2 CJE rep in the country and got laid off the next year. No warning, no explanation, nothing to do with performance. Micro Management if you don't hit quota in 2-3 months. Career Growth almost impossible with # of tenured employees.

    I worked at Tyco full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company is truly a one stop shop for having the opportunity to sell the latest and greatest technology. Initial training on how to sell the "Tyco” way is good. Direct access to manufacturers for help on designing solutions was a plus.

    Cons

    Working space / cubicles were very small and it was difficult to layout large floor plans and work. Management expects reps to sell plus engineer the job providing no additional compensation for the expertise. This also held up installs due to lack of missing specific items mostly because of lack of product knowledge. This happened frequently due to upper management focused so strongly on quota rather than quality. Often as a rep you spent more time designing than selling which ultimately impacts quota. There is very little opportunity to advance in the company unless working in larger markets.

    I worked at Tyco full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Large company with a deep service and installation infrastructure. A large base of knowledge. Strong buying power. Occasional company provided training. Lots of existing customers. With the right branch and local manager can be an enjoyable job.

    Cons

    The management culture is only concerned about quotas and their own production. Always searching for new sales with very little regard for the existing customers--especially when customer issues do not directly contribute to immediate sales production. Management from the top down.

    Pros

    Some of the people. Benefits are not to bad. Had very high expectations for this company. Very disappointing.

    Cons

    Management!! Disconnected from reality. Poor management from executive level on down. Installations. Over 4 weeks for installs. Salary is awful. Training for 2 weeks out of state. Kept in contact with other reps from training class. Huge issues with company as a whole all over the country.

    Great people to work with, freedom to work out of the office.

    Cons

    Lack of company vision, departments don't work with one another. Charge backs for improper installations. Forget annual pay raises unless you get 100% to quota.
