    Pros

    Above industry average in benefits and compensation. Big company, lots of safety, until the day it ends. In the meantime, there are lots of opportunity, flexibility and freedom.

    Cons

    Big conglomerate. It's like a mutual fund. There are dogs and stars in Honeywell's global portfolio. It depends on which part of the business you are in. I was part of the cash-cow, something to be proud of since it gave cash to fund Hon's other growth, But the company just expects to withdraw from the cash cow, rather than feed it when the market (customer) wants something to keep paying the margins that has fuelled the cash cow giving to the other growth businesses.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to apply one principle fits all. Not all the segments are the same, and not many can support the overhead burden expected of it, especially when the business is a low;y invested cash cow. Adding more overhead (HOS, safety, lots of bureaucracy, plenty of VP-style visits) draws upon the overhead receivers the poor cow can't give.

    It's been a giving cow, it would be better to burden it less and allow it to focus on what value it can add to the customers, so it can keep earning the margins to pass on the other parts of the business. Cost structure is rising faster than what the segment can innovate, given the maintenance investment.

    Problem is not with the CEO, but all the legion of middle/senior management that tries to understand all that Honeywell tries to do. They just want simplicity, red, yellow green lights.
