Current Employee - Engineer III  in  Phoenix, AZ
Current Employee - Engineer III in Phoenix, AZ

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

Pros

Get to work remotely.
Good IT support.
Cool Product line. Airplane Engines to almost everything else on an airplane.
Flexible hours.
Pretty good benefits.
Very Good starting pay.
Lots of weekly and online training.
Very nice, easy going boss and co-workers.
A lot of very long term employees.
Did not lay off people in 2008-2010 time frame. Just reduced pay and hours worked.
Interesting work and able to get stuff done.
Lots and lots of new programs and software. Constant improvement.
Can get help with a project when I need it without being made to feel bad.
Lots of communication from executives. Good town hall meetings and website and emails.
Nice Hometown Charity fund.

Cons

Only two weeks vacation for very senior engineers coming in new. Can not negotiate.
No Bonus at all available for senior engineers.
401k Match not until after one year. And not a good match at that.
Health Insurance is a high deductible plan with a Health Savings Account (HSA) option.
$3000 Deductible for families.
Honeywell gives you the 1st $1000 in HSA.
Health Insurance is VERY expensive for a High Deductible Plan. 5X more than other employers I have had for the same coverage.
With 130,000 employees, you would think they could get a better price on Health Insurance.
Terrible additional Life Insurance program. Never an open enrollment if you don't sign up on hire. I have never seen that at any other company.
Small Raises in 2012
NO RAISES IN 2013. While executives are expected to get HUGE bonuses. And company did fantastic in 2012. This is killing morale.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Share some of the wealth. Bonuses for everyone. Lower the cost of health insurance, as I can't believe it cost that much. Just give annual raises. Stop calling it a Merit increase. Get rid of employee appraisal system, it is insulting and a HUGE waste of your employees and managers time.

    I have been working at Honeywell

    Pros

    Good pay. Good thing to have on a resume.

    Cons

    they had me mostly doing testing. and not even the interesting testing, but just user acceptance testing... BORING. also they'll make the job description sound like its as coding-intense as any other internship, and there IS SOME small coding, but hardly any.
