Looking for a company that takes pride in being innovated and team oriented.
Supply Chain Purchasing Buyer/Admin Assistant (Former Employee) – Menlo Park, CA – 12 June 2013
A typical day for me would be making sure my planner is well organized and prioritized. It allows me to utilize my time wisely and helps me in making sure nothing gets missed. I've learned throughout the years that we can't depend on our memory. My Coworkers always know me as the person that's willing to help others and find pride in teaching others. The hardest part as a buyer is working with people overseas due to the time difference. The most enjoyable part is working with Development, Operations, and Engineering staff. They are great to work with and find an interest in new technology.
High stress, High expectations, but with low rewards.
Technical Support Specialist (Former Employee) – North York, ON – 12 October 2017
This company has turned from a great place to grow to a horrible place to work at. Multiple company rebranding and restructuring resulted in horrible management and training. With the management ignoring any suggestions from the workers.
Great member benefits
Long hours, high stress, horrible work environment.
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 September 2017
My day could be busy when all couriers and mail show up at the same time. I learned about to do scanning for reports for management to put into the system for accessibility for various departments. Management was sometimes helpful when I had issues regarding situations at my front desk but not always there in person. Communication was mostly via email or voice mail. The hardest part of my job was getting people to understand how I could not leave me desk to do things and would have to get someone to come out and assist me or I would have to do it on my time with no compensation. The enjoyable part of my job was giving associates their service awards for the time they have been at the company i.e. 10, 15 and 20 year service awards. They were fun to see what people had selected and their faces when it arrived.
Free lunches, farewell get togethers and supporting our local city with draws
People forgetting badges, expectation was for me to open doors, hard to do when I am on the phone. Noise in Reception was sometimes loud.
Support Rep (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 28 August 2017
Company seems to be ok but DSC technical support department is too much micro managed. The managers sort of bully you and are always on your heads . If you are not the favourite one it is not easy to survive. HR department ; even if is aware about the situation acts like they are completely unaware and give you falsee hope of turning things right. Good salary but too much of politics and no scope of growth. I will never recommend anyone to join it.
Sr. Manager (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 24 July 2017
Tyco is a great place to work. If you are willing to put forth a big effort to show you want to advance then the doors will open for you. It is a corporate world and decisions are made upon what will drive the stock.
Regional Technical Coordinator (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 8 May 2017
no team work, no management for years, disorganized unsafe procedures salary is a joke technicians have no clue and no experience what so ever half the techs are on stress disability most of the year no respect among management and staff
N/A (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 25 April 2017
Most positions overworked, and underpaid. Still using very old technology. The new Tyco advances safety and security by finding smarter ways to save lives, improve businesses and protect where people live and work around the globe.
Organized, friendly staff willing to go above & beyond
Fire Alarm Technician Assistant (Former Employee) – Dartmouth, NS – 28 February 2017
A company you don't want to miss out on! Excellent at valuing each employee equally and working as a team. Great way to grasp a foundation in electronics and as well, the fire industry in Canada as a young professional. Security in positions for valued technicians.
Individual Contributor (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 15 February 2017
The culture is suffocating as there is a lack of proper vision and leadership within the management and senior leadership teams. Projects are not properly planned or executed. There is no organization portfolio to properly understand the companies strategy and how individuals contribute to the success of these objectives. Performance rating and evaluation are never taken seriously and compensation therefore suffers as low preforming individuals are often recognized by management do to personal relationship and high performers are not rewarded for their hard work and ethics.
Peers are nice to work with.
Long hours, lack of vision, planning, execution and direction. Low salary compensation.
