Anonymous (Former Employee) – Massachusetts – October 14, 2016
While I was there, the company had been deconstructing itself, spinning off businesses in 2007 and 2012. It was also transforming from a greater holding company to an operating one focused on its remaining core businesses of life safety. During this transition, cost was being driven out of the operations over the period of several years resulting in annual layoffs, involuntary and voluntary. While compensation was good, benefits were being reduced and morale was dropping. Tyco has since merged with Johnson Controls and now operates under that company's name. Because the company I worked for no longer exists, it would be unfair for me to describe how that company now operates...but I'm sure a transition to complete the merge is ongoing. So if you like change and want to be part of making it happen, this is a great place to be.
Competitive/good compensation and reasonable work/life balance, exciting place to work due to ongoing changes
Effects of cost-out approach to management; reduced benefits, training, travel, etc.
Extremely oppressive and controlling work environment.
Core Commercial Sales Rep. (Current Employee) – Mechanicsburg, PA – October 19, 2016
I really enjoyed working for this company (Tyco Integrated Security) despite some drawbacks (not sufficient training on software systems required to complete ales cycle). Since it was acquired by Johns Controls the total environment has evolved into a completely different situation.
Plenty of products and services to offer the customer as solutions
Oppressive, controlling and restrictive work climate.
Lead Technician IV (Current Employee) – Eatontown, NJ – October 5, 2016
The hardest part of the job is the driving to job sites. I live in NJ but since the company does not have salesman in the NJ office, I need to go in NYC for the past 5 years. what I love the most is that at the end of the day seeing an happy customer after all my hard work gives results.

Machinist (Former Employee) – Mansfield, TX – October 4, 2016
I was the lone machinist. Work load was moderate most of the time. This was a good place to work at. I also ordered shop supplies when I wasn't machining parts on the lathe or mill for assemblies !Nice people to work with. Too bad they relocated! I enjoyed my job!
Special Operations (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – September 21, 2016
Overall this is a great place to work plenty of advancement opportunities within the company. New employees spend about a month in a classroom setting before going on to the floor and even then you can always contact a manager with any questions you have. Only down fall I would have to say for this job is it tends to get very repetitive leading you to feel unchallenged or bored alot of the time. Still if you don't mind sitting for long periods of time and show up to work on time this is a great place to work.

Install Coordinator (Current Employee) – Fishers, IN – September 8, 2016
This job is will keep you busy but will allow you flexibility for personal time. The management could do a better job at evaluating the employees to better evaluate who is a better value to the company and show the employee's that their hard work is appreciated.
Supervisor, Quality Control / L&D (Current Employee) – Lithia Springs, GA – August 31, 2016
Every day was different but it is nearly impossible to get a raise and all of the systems used are very outdated. I learned SO much though and really appreciate the experience I've gained during my time there. There is extremely high turnover which makes it hard to work there but the work is generally very enjoyable.
The people, opportunity for change
uncompetetive salary, mediocre benefits, VERY high turnover
Regional Commercial Installation Coordinator (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – August 10, 2016
Tyco is a great company to work for. The managers and staff are very helpful in making sure that you have all the tools needed to succeed. The atmosphere is positive and welcoming and there are a ton of growth opportunities.
Embedded Software Engineer (Former Employee) – Westminster, MA – August 10, 2016
Local management is good but the senior management does not care for the average worker. Benefits aren't bad but they could be better. Salary is good for area but lower then comparable postions with other companies.
Senior Download Technician (Former Employee) – Aurora, CO – August 8, 2016
Tyco focus on the newest customer service experience with the latest technology. I have learned to use so many different kinds of software's. Example DSC down loader, Compass Down loader, RPS, NICE, Detection System. The most enjoyable part of the job is the satisfaction of correcting or solving an issue with the customers security panels.
