    I worked at Honeywell

    Pros

    Interesting work, opportunity to learn manufacturing of small parts, nice location and good lunchroom

    Cons

    Management bias is very strong. If you're not ex military then this may not be the place for you. Always some reference to how this is how it's done in the military and disagreeing with corporate philosophy. If you disagree with something or someone they will immediately reference some story from when they were in the military. Lack of professionalism is rampant as there is no room for differing opinions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More diverse workgroup will provide better work environment for all. Employees are not enjoying being managed like they're soldiers. Provide professionalism in the workplace training for transitioning military so they understand the differences in workplace culture.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Only been with one team my 2 years here, and enjoy the work and team I am with.

    Cons

    While my 2 years here, I've gone through a management change where I've never had a manager longer than 6 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your people. Let them know that you appreciate the hard work they are doing.

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

    Pros

    Pros of the job include: People, Travel, Engaging work and developing industry with IT Security

    Cons

    The cons of the job are: Low amount of PTO, Limited career progression,Small office with limited interaction with Honeywell Corporate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Development of the cyber-security services should be a different business line away from aerospace. Without moving it into a different business line the priorities don't always align to support the services.

  7. The corporate office was out of touch with needs in Massachusetts and forced us to lose our state contract and our jobs.

    Pros

    Very concerned with employee personal safety. No micromanagement, you are on your own.

    Cons

    No training on tasks performed, just on corporate boilerplate. No coordination between coworkers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let local management guide you to issues at hand locally.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    In Aerospace, product development is 110% engineering driven. I haven't heard of a project being pushed through without total consensus from all parties. Schedules are driven at a high level, but each group has the time to do their job with appropriate thoroughness.

    Little to no politics, bickering, or personal vendettas, at least at the lower levels.

    Stable work. Enforcement of local department processes and spreading work out helps prevent individuals from becoming protective of their knowledge and/or unfirable single points of failure.

    They don't "do" mass layoffs like the other defense companies. When they do get rid of people, it's for true incompetence or rulebreaking, and it's targeted.

    Work-life balance is good.

    Cons

    Work output and deliverables are highly standardized. If you're here for 20 years, you won't have 20 years of experience - you will have 1 year of experience 20 times over.

    No opportunities for advancement unless you apply for a job in another department through the careers website like an outsider.

    Micromanagement gets very annoying, but at least you usually only have to make your front line manager happy.

    Rigid enforcement of roles means that if you have skills outside your job title, you will be discouraged if not punished outright for doing anything that another group is supposed to be responsible for.

    Cafeteria isn't the best, off-campus food options are limited

    Benefits are awful. No 401k matching the first year, only 3% the second year, and the health plans are mostly high deductible HSAs.

    IT is a godawful outsourced-to-india-can't-understand-a-word-they're-saying waste of time. Takes 3 months to get a new employee a computer, but at least you don't have to go through that very often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand why a lot of the 'cons' are the way they are, and some of the 'Pros' wouldn't exist without them. But you really could have better local IT support. BMC Remedy just gets in the way, I need a local contact I can IM.

    Maybe get some better pizza in the Torrance cafeteria too.

    I worked at Honeywell

    Pros

    There are some really smart and great people to work with and tremendous individual contributors and a very broad product line that has good revenue potential across many diverse fields.

    Cons

    There are some issues at leadership, with constant overturn and reorganizations and if you are at the Manager/Director level or above your at risk of being cut every 12 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really need to have a better system of taking new manager level employees and putting them on a path to success and promotion within the organization.

    Pros

    Lifetime job, if you are capable

    Cons

    Advancement stops after you are promoted out of the junior engineer ranks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop killing your employees with boredom

    I worked at Honeywell full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Large company means projects get approved, job security, and room to move around. The work was always interesting.

    Cons

    They suffer from the big wall-street facing problems of quarterly scrambles to make their numbers financially. Even when employee raises were cut, the CEO is still getting his 20+ million dollar bonuses. I understand it's the new common thing, but still annoying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing I say here will matter. It is what it is. I dislike the CEO's style, but the company stock did go up, and we were stable.
