    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.

    I worked at Tyco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very caring and stress free environment
    Friendly and supportive team leads and managers
    Embracing educational and technical development
    Payment was always on time
    Very flexible on work time and team leads almost always trusted developers
    Strict on core values

    Cons

    Each year you may expect termination with no or almost least meaningful reason (According to colleagues)
    Sometime you may feel number of members in team are more than enough which can slowdown overall speed
    Some projects were at risk because of weak time estimation and management
    There were some complains on performance evaluation

    Advice to Management

    Use professionals for marketing and system integration. They are core to right project definition which should be delivered on time to market.

    Pros

    I had a great boss, great teammates, great work environment.

    I was laid-off because of the impending merger, and my job was moved overseas to Ireland. I had to train my replacement, who was incompetent.

    I worked at Tyco full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay. That is the only "Pro" I could come up with.

    Cons

    Terrible training; no one cares if you complain or have feedback to give since they're a Unionized company; terrible workplace culture and morale; no room for advancement so whatever you get hired for is what you'll be doing the entire time; company keeps getting bought and sold so upper management constantly changes every few years.

    Advice to Management

    Train, and give your Trainer some training at your Toronto location to gain better people skills to administer better training!

    I worked at Tyco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy going. Feels like a government job. Good technical experience.

    Cons

    Low pay and no room for advancement.

    Management always tell you what to do instead of taking feedback on what the product should be. They try to please everyone and make the product more complicated filled with useless features. Sometimes it feels like there is no vision. When layoff cycle comes, they lay off people who they don't like.

    Only people who suck up to management or people who are good friends with them seem to get ahead. Lots of favoritism, even though they say they don't favor people.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Keep your good talent and weed out the bad apples.
