    Toxic environment, Upper management up to CEO is ineffective. On my Division kantech in one month they lost 90% of R&D only two person stayed, Even 3 middle levels managers quit during this time. The VP visite the division after hear all the complains the answer for those how stayed was. I can't do nothing about it.

    I have been working at Tyco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They pay you money to be here. That's the only pro and even then, if they could find a way not to pay you, they wouldn't.

    Cons

    Lowest factory pay in the area. Terrible employee benefits. Near constant overtime, can't have a life outside of JCI. Takes responsibility of upper management and dumps it on their shop floor employees. Refuses to shut down production during a pandemic, still posts mandatory over time, tells parents they have to use all their vacation and sick time before they can have unpaid time off to care for children during a health crisis. Takes chairs out of the lunch room to practice social distancing, while insisting they keep operations going. Allows abusive, toxic supervisors to terrorize employees. Places importance on production and profits over employee's own well being.

    I worked at Tyco full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Compared to other entry-level positions with minimal qualifications, the starting pay is reasonably high with average benefits. The food at the cafeteria is great, though it closes fairly early (1:30PM). If you enjoy working extra hours you can expect to make a good deal more money as there is nearly always overtime.

    Cons

    There is nearly always overtime, to a ridiculous degree. At the end of each month there is a crunch with extra hours piled on as the sales team pushes through all the orders they were lazing about with earlier in the month. The exact last day of the month you'll work all day to 9-10 PM. It is not rare to work 6-day weeks, and to work multiple double-shifts each week. The work/life balance is simply atrocious. There is rarely any room to move up past lower management. Lateral moves can be made aplenty but you must retain your position for a full year first. Middle management have their hands completely tied to policy that extremely favors the company over its workers. Upper management treats the front-line employees like work-horses and don't care about you being over-worked. Management is slow to respond to problems; the departments are only just now expanding their numbers to keep up with the work after a year of being understaffed.

    I worked at Tyco full-time for 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.

    I worked at Tyco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Managers are some what flexible with your schedule. There was a good work ethic and most other employees were very nice people.

    Cons

    I have really nothing bad to highlight, my experience at Simplex Grinnell was great where I made good friends. The only strange thing I noticed was that upper management had an impressive turn over.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN
    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Tyco full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Decent benefits; Weekly payroll; Ability to earn monthly Incentive bonus; Some small opportunity to flex start and end times; In last several years, no weekends except for overtime offerings, Often released from the office early for holidays; Lower level and middle management generally friendly, open and invested. C-level management, the same; Opportunity to advance is noted and regularly discussed throughout the corporation. Ability to purchase hot lunches at work during normal business hours about 3 days weekly.

    Cons

    Pay is not always commensurate with experience nor is it competitive with local market rates except in management; Insurance deductibles are incredibly high; Upper Management at the location are distant and detached from the majority of the employees; and in one case openly hostile to employees; There is not a human resource person at the site available to answer questions and assist employees/management; There are no longer employee centric activities to have a little fun occasionally.

    I worked at Tyco for less than a year

    Pros

    Mostly good people at the ground level. Nice building.....

    Cons

    Management being more concerned with metrics than customer satisfaction. Mandates from upper management drives sales reps, install managers, install technicians to make EXTREMELY unethical decisions that negatively impact not only the customers but the ground level employees dealing with the install process (or lack of....). Extremely high turn over in sales dept. makes for bad customer experience. Expect Johnson Controls "merger" to clear out a large portion of of redundant or unnecessary positions.
