    Professional workers, but non-professional managers

    Principal Software Engineer (Former Employee) Albuquerque, NM

    ProsI found the work in Albuquerque NM interesting and challenging. Developing Embedded applications for avionics.

    ConsThe managers, in the team I was in, did not seem to want to manage people. They would avoid any chance to work directly with people. Of the 3 managers I had contact with only one truly wanted to manager people

    Advice to Senior ManagementSelect managers based on their desire to manage people. Skilled workers who only want to manager jobs should not be assigned to manage people.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Typical large Corporation

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) South Bend, IN

    ProsStable company. Flexible work schedule.

    ConsFrustrating, non-value added work. Honeywell seems to create its own problems. Communications are not very good. Vendors do not seem to be very developed or supportive.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMove away from "check the box" management style to actually trying to define problems and fix them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Only certain types of people will get promoted

    Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) Coon Rapids, MN

    ProsPeople are friendly.
    The work is fun.

    ConsThere are better salaries elsewhere, and promotions only come if you brown nose your bosses.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote based on quality of work, not who goes golfing with the boss.

    Just isn't the same..

    Senior Manager (Former Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    ProsGreat, hard working dedicated people. Use to have good benefits, competitive compensation, plenty of training opportunities. Sr Manager down, great leadership. Plenty of upward mobility

    ConsCompany is only focused on shareholder satisfaction and stock performance, Benefits are getting smaller and smaller, Cutting costs at every opportunity with very little to no focus on the future, the employees or the customers... Sad.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop the short term mindset, take care of your people, ride out the low times and focus on the future, not today and tomorrow. Invest heavily on future technology, that is what made us so successful in the first place. Put more thought into the betterment of the company and employees as appose to your bonus.

    Not what it used to be

    Engineer (Current Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    ProsTalented and hard working fellow employees, good starting pay, decent benefits. Line level supervisors are generally excellent and supportive. Flexible work hours for some.

    ConsCorporate leadership out of touch, poor new recruit retention. Honeywell no longer recognizes value of employee experience. Many of the better benefits are reduced for new hires.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive young talent a promotion path, allow different divisions some autonomy, ditch the old G.E./Allied Signal way of doing things. Stop trying to hammer square pegs into round holes with the One Honeywell model.
