    Pros

    Fast paced, challenging. The people all pull together as a team to get things done. Very talented people associated to the project.

    Too much management. The safety department is the most powerful department in the company. Hinder getting anything done for the most part. Lots of levels of management which is very confusing..

    Advice to Management

    Encourage innovation. Help made things easier to get done. Less paperwork and meeting.s to contend with. More training and resources for the engineering dept CAD department.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time

    Pros

    The salary is reasonable the facilities at the plant i worked at were good. The opportunity for advancement is present but limited to your political skills rather than your technical ability.

    Cons

    The company's current trend is moving manufacturing to lower cost labor regions.

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn't take advice.

    Pros

    This company offers decent pay and plenty opportunity for overtime. This company will also recognize and attempt to retain hard consistent workers.

    Cons

    Promotions are made strictly on a political basis. Production is always valued over proper and safe procedures. Numbers are expected to be met seemingly by any means necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Management should step back expected production numbers in order to improve quality, safety, and to reduce the unnecessary stress put on workers who are always aware that rules must be broken to fulfill orders, but put their safety and employment at risk. They should also have more personal communication with employees.

    Pros

    The work can be interesting, depending on your site and role. Most people want to do a good job. To move up in the company, you will often have to change locations.

    Cons

    Annual raises have been low for the last 10 years or so and many benefits have been taken away. Many managers seem to be unwilling to "do the hard thing" and terminate employment for employees who should have been let go long ago.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need more training, people get promoted because they need a "next step" and they often have no clue how to manage their employees.
