    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
