    A great company abundant with opportunities–many unrealized.

    Pros

    Honeywell Aerospace is a fascinating place to work with elaborate systems to facilitate its' global position. Its' products are highly valued and brought to the marketplace with a keen understanding of the political and economic climates in which they operate. Their strategies for global growth seem well balanced between conservative application of capital and leading edge innovation.

    Cons

    A highly compartmentalized culture which struggles to maintain the momentum and responsibilities necessary to achive the growth results expected from local sites (South Bend). Local sites are often starved of resources and capital as the profits are allocated to the global expansion of Honeywell International. Too much 'change for change's sake' without measureable results other than unrealized productivity and waste.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Honeywell full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company encourages promotion through taking on new roles, whether that's switching from engineering to a business role or finance to a sourcing role, once you're hired in Honeywell, you can construct your career as you like. Promotions and new opportunities are generally secured through networking.

    Cons

    I definitely experienced some sexism, given the demographic of the company is largely baby-boomer white males. There is a large generational gap as well, which can be positive for ambitious young employees looking to climb into middle management, but is difficult when often times your manager is struggling to understand what drives your generation. Benefits such as money towards grad school and 401K match only reseeded while I was employed at Honeywell. Work/life balance is not a top priority, especially as you move up the ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower young people by giving them significant projects in addition to their jobs that can help them spread their wings and feel meaningful in the organization.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with people all over the world. Remote working is ok and even encouraged

    Cons

    Focus on quarterly profits at the expense of customer relationships and long term growth. Medical benefits are poor. Not a lot of respect for domain expertise gathered over many years by management which constantly changes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many chiefs and not enough Indians to do the work.

    Pros

    The work and responsibility entrusted was awesome. Learnt a lot from both the work and the people working with. Fun, positive looking team

    Cons

    Disappointed that they did not come through for me when I needed a relocation. Each one looks out for themselves and inspite of putting in multiple years, you are left high and dry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look out for your employees, especially the ones who want to make a career with Honeywell.

    Pros

    Ability to work remotely
    Good holiday time off, vacation, PTO and STD benefits
    Some managers encourage individual growth

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be challenging. Health care is way too expensive and what you get is not worth it. Many inconsistencies between organizations and leaders. Raises are laughable if they even happen. There is no cost of living raises any more. Leadership is more interested in the bottom line rather than the people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to focusing on your employees. Happier workers make for productive workers.

    Pros

    Very large company with a lot of world wide influence. Salaries are generally good.

    Cons

    In general people are not treated very well. Benefits, specifically insurance, for a company this size are not good. Very large turnover rate a the facility I worked at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your people, you say they are your most valuable asset yet you treat them as second class citizens. Your turnover rate should give a clue that you have a problem

    Pros

    Workers are friendly and you could feel proud of what you do if you were allowed to.

    Cons

    Management has their head in the sand. They ask for suggestions on such things as Quality, but never use the suggestions. They hire good talent on contract & then let them go in 2 years or less thus letting talent & experience walk out the door, When your constantly revolving people you are in a constant training flux, thus the quality goes down. Stupid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN to the suggestions!
