It depends on what type of tcas you are using. If it is TIS no it wont
if it is a true tcas installed in an aircraft that interegates other
transponders yes it will work.

Why does this sound negative to me? Are there major disadvantages of TCAS
that outweigh the advantages (besides the cost)?

The DHL midair in Europe a few years back comes to mind - although I
think that was more a case of two different schools of though in dealing
with TCAS alerts.
