    I worked at Tyco full-time

    Pros

    The Office space is nice.

    Cons

    Low salary; appears to value their employees but doesn't. Doesn't know how to manage people to make a profit. Fear, understaffed and underpaid does not create morale and happy and satisfied employees satisfied who want to work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being a wolf in Sheep's clothing. Passive aggressive management garners fear and disrespect. Be true to yourself. If you want your own way at any human cost than be open at least people will know what to expect

    I worked at Tyco full-time

    Pros

    Great products. Good reputation. Pay and benefits are very good

    Cons

    1) Management has, more than once, decimated service and support groups, even immediately after investing in them. (To keep dividends & executive bonuses high?) 2) I have personally witnessed high level executives have a temper tantrum so keep your head down worker bees. 3) Despite many long term employees, there is absolutely no job security here so take the money and keep your resume fresh. 4) Trust nothing!

    Advice to Management

    Remember who does the work. It's not the upper management that keeps the money coming in.

    doesn't matter, it seems majority of the senior management, no longer works there
