    I worked at Honeywell full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Personal growth is there if you push hard enough, promotions vary by department, benefits were once very good.

    Cons

    Lack of loyalty. Benefits have declined over the years but upper management gets rewarded bonuses for work that someone else is doing. Credit is not given where it need to be leaving low morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You people are your assets not your product. Once this is realized morale will change as long as environment changes with it.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time

    Pros

    Pay is competitive for my band scale
    Retirement pension is rare in today's industry. Honeywell is one of the few
    401k matching is excellent especially after 3 years

    Cons

    HOS is bulky and slows everything down with over analysis of the basics
    Production Driven instead of people driven
    very little to now progression or pay raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to learn to balance the workforce progression with longevity. HOS is not always the answer! Common sense should be the first rule of thumb.

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

    Pros

    Honeywell invests in its employees and is truly dedicated to employee growth and development.

    Cons

    You have certain managers in leadership roles who shouldn't be managers, not of their own fault mind you, they simply haven't been mentored or provided with enough leadership training. Its very evident however and it represents a serious problem to moral in certain parts of the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention - you have some managers who don't belong managing people, you know who they are and you have certainly received enough feedback from the Honeywell Clearwater site to know who they are, you simply refuse to act on it and make the changes necessary to coach them and remove them.

    Pros

    Most people in corporate and on site are truly well educated dedicated professionals. You can learn something new everyday.

    Cons

    The Honeywell Operating System requires excessive resources to complete, such as formal group meetings to discuss simple actions and too much justification for slipping on schedule A to meet an urgent schedule B, and the CA system is way over the top on time needed to close non important issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Customer Satisfaction and OTTR is better managed working with the customers and internal staff, not spending the majority of the day trying to collect data and prepare for the next meeting.
