Hardware-Software Integration Engineer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 October 2013
I haven't learned so much since the work environment and the tasks assigned were not challenging and the work culture is not a really good one. No team work at all. I had young but very un-experienced supervisors. Not too experienced HW/SW director.
No team work at all. Not a challenging environment. Not good management. No career development.
Product Manager (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 1 October 2013
The most enjoyable part of working is the people around you. Those people make it all worth the effort to get up in the morning and look forward to coming into the office. Those people were plentiful.You always learn. I look forward to learning new things everyday. Working with our suppliers and manufacturers representatives was also a highlight. Reviewing new products and getting insight into whats coming were most enlighning. Perhaps one of the most satisfying areas dealt with providing support, on site or over the phone, for our Sales, Service and Installation teams. If I didnt have the answer readily available, I would get it and get back to them. It was no different when it was necessary to provide solutions/corrective actions for our Residential or Commercial Customers. It was the hearing the all familiar "Thank you" when the issues were taken care of. To me, that's what its all about, your customer's satisfaction.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 30 May 2013
Each day at work was busy as my task was primarily to document and check every visitor to the site and call Human Resources to let them know of the arrival of that person on site. Officers would have already checked the daily list of expectant visitors on line. I checked the bag of every employee or visitor leaving the site through the East Gate turnstile. Any one who refused to show bag would be reported.As they swiped their access cards,their names would appear on the Chubb System. Co- workers basically did the same thing and were easy to get along with making my job easier.I loved shifting from the East Gate to the North to the Corporate Offices. The respect I had for management was reciprocal. From this job I gained a comprehensive knowledge of fire alarm procedures and the importance and being in a constant state of readiness for any eventuality.
Security had free access to Pub and Canteen to purchase or make coffee, in the Corporate Office these would be given free of cost to security.
We had no breaks but could have left the Guard House at safe periods, we made purchases or skipped across to the Corporate Office for snacks.
National Project Manager (Former Employee) – North York, ON – 14 May 2013
I fielded calls from across Canada sometimes starting at 5:00 AM from the Atlantic region till 7:00 PM from the Pacific region. The people I worked with were great! The managers expected a honest day work for a honest days pay, but they were quick to point out that there were 24 hours in a day!
Hardest part of the job was coordinating the different parties.
Best part of the job was being able to travel across Canada.
Secrétaire, Répartiteur - service à la clientèle (Former Employee) – Québec, QC – 3 April 2013
Receiving phone calls from technicians from different parts of the world. Verifying there needs and transfering calls. Part of the French comity to make sure everything was written in french and english within the company according to laws. The management was very flexible and human when needed to meet with them if an issue occured with customers. Hardest part of the work was working on shifts. Enjoyed the team and help traine new employees on the system.
Tyco security integrated is a very good company. Thus, it is the best school. It thought me true discipline and mostly how to work well in a group. We're all on an equal scale since we're unionized. It is truly a philanthropic environment. The managers are always there to help and we have constant training to perfect our skills. It makes you grow as a person and teaches you authentic respect.
excellent workplace, feels like a big family.
24h central - the hours of operation are very difficult.

Employee (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 25 June 2012
A typical work day is full of challenges. There are constant changes that you need to deal with. i have learned that although lots of emphasis is put into core values it is not being practiced over here. They don't practice what they preach. The management is micro managed and it takes more than a month to hire or replace employees. The co-workers are great and they always work as a team to help the company progress. The hardest part of the job was no matter how well one preformed the management was never satisfied with it. Everything was always taken negatively instead of positive outlook. The most enjoyable part of the job was stand up meeting where the manager explained the upcoming events.
social club do their best to keep everyone involved
