    I have been working at Tyco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, great perks, I like the work.

    Lots of different tasks to break up the day.

    I get the support of management needed

    Cons

    Benefits could be better but they are still okay.

    When I get the support of management I get the minimum, nothing more

    Advice to Management

    Good job

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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!

    Pros

    Good starting pay, automatic periodic raises until you reach your cap in 3 years + cost of living increases. Full benefits, sick days.

    Cons

    Management has unrealistic expectations and mechanical way of imposing those expectations. QA standards are ambiguous and unclear. Work environment is extremely hostile and unpleasant. Lots of overtime if you want it.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to integrate desire to reach goals and quotas with the well being of staff.

    I worked at Tyco full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Reputable and stable company. Great local staff. Competitive compensation plan. Pay could be better. The company hasn't given raises in several years.

    Cons

    Constant changes in middle management and having people that don't know and don't care to learn the industry run the departments. There is no consistency. People walk around fearing they will lose their job. The company doesn't invest in their employees. They'd rather find a new person to do your job rather than work with you to succeed. Company morale is extremely low. Toxic environment. Management does not promote teamwork.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees. Just because the company had a bad month/quarter doesn't mean you have to fire half the company. Take care of your employees and in turn they will take care of your customers.
