Recognizable brand, stable but can be boring and slow. Very good benefits, decent salary. Need to improve promotions!

Pros

Respected Fortune 500 company. Pay is decent, line of work can be interesting. Good health benefits. Flex Time was great! Tuition reimbursement is awesome (I was in a decent group with decent managers); they covered everything and never hesitated to do so even though my degree would eventually let me switch to another role (as long as it was something Honeywell was into it was supported).

Good to have experience of how a big company operates and understand different processes. There's an effort to get everyone Six Sigma certified. Huge plus to have on a resume.

Cons

Lots of knowledge is stuck in the brains of old timers that are on the verge of retirement or have already retired. A better process is needed for information retention.

Work is isolated to certain technologies and can be done without seeing the bigger picture of the product. It's nice to have visibility into what you're working on beyond its immediate purpose.

Working in a big company can be slow and bureaucratic. If you want quick results and accountability (rather than deal with people who can keep their jobs and do little to nothing) then get on an active team with important projects or look elsewhere.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote people within a reasonable period of time, especially when they have shown an obvious growth in skills and responsibilities (and also have been given Bravo awards). Do away with the ridiculous quota of only being able to promote X amount of people per quarter based on team size (or increase the amount of X) and thus making people that deserve a promotion wait because of other people being in line for a promotion based on seniority. In addition, filling a spot for a senior position and not promoting from within is a great way to demoralize people.

Pay your employees for overtime. Get rid of the 6 hours of donation needed to get paid for anything above 6 hours - that's a huge rip off.

Finally, improve information retention. Document everything. Hiring young people to teach won't do; retention rate isn't what it used to be so knowledge isn't going to stay for long.

    Pros

    Great place to work due high level of communication and career counseling but number one is the required respect for others in all interactions. Wife works for a company where yelling and name calling is tolerated. That kind of behavior could get you verbal and then written warnings within Honeywell and, if not corrected, lead to loss of your job!

    Cons

    1. Compensation can be higher in other companies for same job. 2. Sometimes frustrating when management won't do the right thing to solve a problem because it's not part of the current strategy. Mostly, the right thing IS done though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the needs of the customer. In IT, this means internal more than external. Customer service is provided lip service - and the aerospace infrastructure team and focals live it and are truly amazing - but other support groups still have room to grow/excel. Also, don't put all your eggs in one basket when implementing new software! Use a couple of vendors to see who has the better software and support.

    Pros

    Work on very important products.

    Cons

    Moving towards having Engineering workforce outsourcing oversea's. Bennefits have slowly dimished since started working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at hidden cost of using overseas manufacturing and engineering.
