    I worked at Honeywell full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Solid big Company in many fields of en-devour they They have Reasonable benefits and salary along with plenty of opportunities for training and growth.

    Cons

    Almost too big, they are big and slow to change. along with that many of the decisions are made irrespective of logic. Thinking that they can offshore the work or just buy competitors and chop them up and distribute the pieces around the globe. Not always the best pieces just the ones that got there first. In short the company is a bully

    I worked at Honeywell

    Pros

    Peers knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful

    Cons

    Medical benefits deteriorated (worked there seven years), no work-life balance, compensation below market, professional development lacking, focused on profit at employees' expense

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked for a subsidiary that was bought by Honeywell. Employees at the subsidiary should receive the same benefits and compensation as corporate Honeywell employees. Work-life balance policies need to be established and enforced. (I worked an average of 80 hours/week during last two years of employment.) Professional development opportunities need to be improved. Training benefits were cut during the last two years of my employment, but we were still expected to complete 20 hours each year out of our own pocket.

    I worked at Honeywell

    Pros

    Established brand name, mature processes, some smart people

    Cons

    Too process driven, no sense of empowerment down to mid management layer. Don't forget your people ultimately will make the difference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees more, and value work life balance more so you don't burn them out and lose them.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time

    Pros

    - Salary is high for the area (rural), especially considering the cost of living.
    - Direct boss is good at defending our time and shared similar views regarding the job we were *actually* hired to do.
    - Honeywell is a big brand name that impresses outsiders.
    - The safety-first culture is real and permeates well throughout. People may gripe about the rules, but a safe workplace is the best industrial workplace.
    -Opportunities are always available to apply to, but relocation is practically universally required.

    Cons

    - Health benefits are a complete joke and encourage employees to seek coverage elsewhere.
    - Honeywell's corporate "lean" system is a hodgepodge of, at best, well-intentioned requirements that leave no room for making the system work on a plant-to-plant basis. All these corporate musts fall on the shoulders of engineers that should be focusing on process-related projects, not time-consuming charts and graphs and pretty pictures.
    - Middle management has the unenviable job of catering to higher and higher management levels while attempting to delegate increasing amounts of action items to their people.
    - Corporate greed seems to drive every decision. There is no camaraderie when you can feel every penny pinched.
    - Priorities change constantly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow discussion and understanding rather than simply making demands. Stop being so obviously motivated on your holiday bonus at the expense of the respect of those under you.

    Is impossible to move up, unless, become a brown nose.

    Pros

    Good pay
    Clean environment
    Great safety processes

    Cons

    They say the company says that they're doing well and there will be no layoffs no matter what three weeks before Christmas I leave work on a Friday night I get a call on Monday morning that it's not my place of work anymore and Friday was my last day, I don't have a job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow a spine.
