Former Employee - Senior Business Systems Analyst in Phoenix, AZ

I worked at Honeywell full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Stable company with great growth potential. Competative compensation package in US and Europe. Diverse workforce with many opportunities for contributions leading to advancement.

Cons

Focus has shifted too much away from a best-n-breed product and customer satisfaction centric to become primarily globalization push (cost reduction) and share holder profit centric. A US based company that has moved over 50% of operations away from home and appears driven to continue this trend....profit, profit, profit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reverse the trend and concentrate on helping America and Americans.

    Pros

    Participation in manufacturing high tech, state of the art equipment, privileged to work with talented professionals.

    Cons

    Only CEO seeing the bucks. Big, big bonus for him. Since Allied Signal came, company got very cheap, they don't buy any new test equipment unless they find a way to make the customer pay for it. Implemented a plan called 5S which "cleaned up" the factory but also got rid of all engineering supplies too. Impossible-to-meet schedules, which mgt. calls "challenging". Don't replace people who leave, others have to take on the work no matter how full one's plate already is. When one takes vacation, they end up giving half or more back with unpaid overtime the following week. Very, very heavy workload of no-value-added "process" means even more unpaid overtime req'd. Impending mass exodus from HI if/when economy improves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop charging the customers, especially the U.S. Government, for overtime hours worked when the employees are working unpaid overtime. That is bad business. Constant 50-60 hour work weeks are going to kill your employees.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Four huge businesses - Automation Control, Transportation, Specialty Chemicals, and Aerospace.
    Good technology, particularly Aerospace products.

    Cons

    Aerospace is moving workforce and locations out of N. America, very clear direction & directives.
    Creation of numerous functions with multiple VPs in each function generating isolated processes have removed focus from customer to functional area. This continues to impact our customers, decision making, and morale. Fewer and fewer employees care any longer due to all the top down decisions, constantly reduced benefits, and higher process expectation without any additional people to support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strength of any business is the employees. Most agile organizations have decisions made at the lowest level of the organization. Eliminate ineffective products (sell them) and build a product line organization with rewards to product lines that make their products better (more profit, more sales, higher customer satisfaction).
