    I worked at Honeywell

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity due to the variety of businesses that are part of the Honeywell business groups - different businesses with different markets

    Peers knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful

    Cons

    Work/life balance is a dwindling concept - many roles require hours well beyond a 40 hour work week

    Professional development opportunities need to be improved

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow discussion and understanding rather than simply making demands. To focused & motivated on your annual bonuses at the expense of subordinates

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and leave time. Some training provided. Sometimes lunch provided at All Hands meetings.

    Cons

    Two times during my employment there I witnessed women who were very flirtatious rise up the ranks to high paying positions while the rest of us more qualified and educated persons are left in the dust. This location (Blount Island - Jacksonville, FL) is run by many retired military men. They don't seem to understand that these women are only flirting with them to get bonuses and raises and that the women never (repeat NEVER) will go out with them!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit promoting based on how much a woman flirts and charms you - she doesn't really mean it, she just wants more money and she's making a fool of you! You have more qualified and educated women working there who will do a much better job for you, if you'd run the place with your brain and not your johnson.

    I worked at Honeywell full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good, stable, work with not much worry of lay-offs. Decent amount of overtime (voluntary) depending on which department. Paid personal time off, holidays, vacation, life insurance, retirement plan.

    Cons

    Not high paying or great health benefits. Feel like just an employee ID number when working for a big-name company.

    Pros

    Great company for a self starter with lots of initiative and willingness to work in a variety of settings
    Lots of opportunity due to the variety of businesses that are part of the Honeywell business groups - different businesses with different markets, maturity and challenges

    Cons

    Slow to accept new ideas and implement
    Limited support for middle management from an HR and leadership perspective
    Culture is still very much dominated by caucasian males with US-centric views

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase diversity in leadership positions and refocus HR support to drive human potential through proactive support of internal growth

    Former Employee - Systems Engineer I in Albuquerque, NM

    I worked at Honeywell

    Pros

    Worked with some very intelligent and bright people. There are incentives to publish patents.

    Cons

    As with most large companies, politics and office drama were heavy there.

    Want design work as a new guy (ie 0 - 10 years) think again. Much of the design work is given to the senior engineers, who have been there for close to 30 years while the less experienced engineers are left with paperwork.

    The career advancement path heavily pushed towards people management and not technical management. Was told on many year end reviews that pursuing a technical path was a waste of time.

    Raises were based off high level company objectives that didn't always align with the current position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow the employees to choose there own advancement path.

    Distribute the work load evenly and fairly (don't play favorites).

    Pros

    Interesting products with focus on engineered content.
    Good profitability and good long term potential for the company to stay in business which offers security

    Cons

    Very quarterly and share holder focused
    Not strong at investing in people and process if it incurs a short term cost

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more product focused and less market/finance focused. If you build it, they will come.
